so using only lower case a-z english alphabet you can come up with 4,586,471,424 different combinations (some are words and some arnt)
(i added that up ... tell me if its wrong .... i dont think it is)
i was just thinking how hard it would be to make the best word list the contained every combination you could get ............ if such a list was made and translated into md5 or des you could have the ultimate md5/des or anything else for that matter decrypter ......... theres already program that let you input a list to check against encrypted words ..... i guess all we are waiting on is this unseen list ......
i think it would take a single person half a year to make a list that went up to 16 letter combinations and had every key (upper case and lower case) on the keyboard
think about how big that file would be ...... my guess is around 750mb or more easy maybe even 1gb
WoW .... now thats a thought
