    2^10 is a much bigger keyspace than 10^2, or more generally, X^Y > Y^X for X < Y.

    In short, passphrase length gives more keyspace than passphrase complexity, so if given a choice between a long passphrase of [a-z] or a short passphrase of [a-zA-Z0-9], it's best to choose the longer, simpler I'd have to agree with your choice of "book indexing" of passphrases (a technique I've used before,'s a great one!).

    For my WPA2 passphrase, I grabbed one of my books, opened a random page, looked for a unique/memorable sentence, changed some letters to upper-case, wrote it on a cigarette paper, memorized it and then burnt the paper. So you'd have to know the book, the page, and the sentence. I've got quite a lot of books: fiction and non-fiction, several genres and subjects. How, excluding torture, would you crack that?
    It's not something I've ever quoted on LQ.

    Latest News about EXTON Linux MultiBootCD 6-OS

    The link you are referring to ( is from 2010.

    This is the correct link now:

    But thanks for your report. I see now that the word DOWNLOAD is also a link. To the version from 2010 as you said. (It's changed now).

    Latest News about EXTON Linux MultiBootCD 6-OS

    Yes sir.

    The oart of the page where Download is spelled out and is a hot link.

    I am letting you know this/posting in uzbl browser so copy and paste are limited in this browser.

    Edit: tested in Iceweseal 24.6 middle link I posted that I got from your page for the Download. Right click "save as"

    error still comes up so I am not sure about where you mention The Download link works for you.
    Maybe a country filter? I have the multiboot iso already and md5sum checks out OK so I am just posting info for the multiboot site page Download link I used. Which maybe others may think is a valid Download link also in Texas, USA. That was why I posted the server link I found with a search later on. Hope it helps you out. I am a great admirer of your work,

    Happy Trails, rok.

    Thanks, but you must have found an old site or one not edited by me. The download link at works.

    Do you remember where you found the faulty download link?

    On the road - part 5..."that van"

    Enjoy it. Been there back in the past (way back) on the east coast from Jersey to Florida. Then from Florida to Texas.

    Been to Arkansas. Back when my Little Sister was stationed there at the AFB. I was driving a 51 dodge pickup
    (not in 1951, but the 90's) cross country picking people like you on the way.

    Top speed in the 51 was 50mph on the freeway. Flathead 6 cycl with 1951 drive train. It drove the hitchers
    crazy moving soo slow. I made 7 round trips from Jersey to Southern California. 1 way trip took 7 days of constant driving by me with no sleep.

    Stay out of South Texas and Southern Arizona. The heat here will kill ya thumbing on the side of the road in the Sun.

    Happy Trails from a Linux using Scooter Tramp, Rok
