The reason for my post was to point out that Mr. Hensing doesn't appear
to be a reliable source of information on the topic of passwords and
hash security.

I think that much became apparent when Mr. Hensing took sarcastic shots at
Linux security (e.g. "Attack easier targets like all those Linux boxes you
installed because its so much more secure . . ."). Funny thing is, Linux
supports up to 256 character passwords by default - twice as long as
Windows.
