That would be correct if you run it on a single, slow, CPU core (about 
50 c/s). Newer high-end ones should do twice of that or more. Using a 
GPU or better yet several of them would speed it up substantially but 
even a 1000x boost wont help from 2.4 million years of course.

If it's a truly random password, you're simply out of luck. If it's not, 
with a good GPU you'll get a 1000x boost so you can try larger wordlists 
or more permutations.
