Subject:  Cracking password in nearly known format


I have a password that I have forgotten in the format of

How can I convince john to try passwords in that format?  I've read RULES, but
it seems un-intuitive.

Also, in this case, I think I know the first three letters, so it should be very
fast to have john try aaa0000-aaa9999, if I can convince him to try them.

Your advice and assistance is appreciated.

Thank you.
