Subject: Re: Running output ETA?

Yes thanks, 
I revised the attack fairly quickly. I've also had more success with a lower ETA using a custom character set and a mask. Also using less time is a small defined word list with a mask. 

This is a Mac OS X 10.12.4 sparse bundle.

I will try to put together a useful reply to the other post on this subject. I will say though, some kind of preconception of the password is needed. Once you get out to six characters the game is lost to time.
