Subject: Re: Known part of password, attempting incremental attack

Thank you Alexander. I had John running in a Linux VM on my Windows machine
so I was unable to use the GPU.  I’ve had issues with dual booting before
which is why I used a VM. I will install a Linux distro onto a separate
drive so I can have GPU support. I have an AMD FX6300 and a Radeon R9 280x,
so outdated old hardware but good for its day.

I will try the suggestions you gave.. thank you
