Microsoft Password Checker

Hey Eric...

Microsoft has a new password checker script...  I know you've talked about replacing the current PasswordMaker Strength gauge in the past...

I thought it might be worth at least a quick look...

Interesting. It looks to be implemented here, and if you scroll to the bottom you'll see they even have a rudimentary dictionary list against which to compare your entries. I can probably adapt this for PasswordMaker--but I wonder what the license is  ;D  Can you say "Used without permission"?
