Hi,

Incremental mode should be more effective than mask mode. It'd try
password candidates in more probable order - not alphabetical.

john --fork=4 --inc=alnum --min-len=8 --max-len=8

That command will took the same amount of time for breaking every
password from that space, but "low hanging fruits" would be broken faster.

Best Regards
