If you only use letters, you only have 26 possible characters.
If you use letters AND/OR numbers in any spot, you have 36 possible characters.

In your 8 character password example, the actual number of combinations is 2,821,109,907,456 not 463,537.

I think you need a refresher in probability.



Wow... I may have just woken up, but I cannot believe that I did not realize that when I was typing. I feel like an idiot now.... *Self owned*
If there's two things I hate in this world, it's cockroaches and crying babies! Well, a crying baby cockroach would be truly terrible... So don't you dare cry!

We all make mistakes. I hope I didn't come across as too much of a jerk - it wasn't my intention. :)

So it was you intention to come off as somewhat of a jerk, but not too much? To what jerk degree did you intend to come off as?

What is the proper amount of jerk for gamefaqs?

No, you didn't come across as a jerk at all. I'm glad that you corrected me so that I didn't provide false information. Plus, I have respect for you as a poster on this website, so that helped too lol.

In correcting someone on a written medium where verbal and non-verbal clues are non-existent, it's pretty much assured that you're going to come across as a jerk to someone. :)

Rumour has it that Winternova is a lawyer. Take your jaws off the ground, folks. It might not be true. Awaiting confirmation.
