Substitutions as in a number one for the lowercase 'l', a zero for the
lower case 'o', the number 5 for the lowercase 's'. I didn't do any in
the above example because of the numbers that already existed in the phrase.
Point is, it's hard for anyone to remember a long password unless it's
something simple, say, their name. With the above approach anyone can
remember a phrase that makes sense to them. Even if their spelling is
incorrect, if they are consistent, it still works.
Until later, Geoffrey
