@niconiconi kudos to Thompson for picking a pretty strong password.

@hhardy01 @niconiconi Well, any additional characters would be truncated by the original crypt() algorithm, and Thompson certainly knew that 🙂

p/q2-q4!

Queen's Pawn Opening.

Probably the second most common move in chess.

Certainly that sequence (minus the exclamation) must appear many thousand times in any major language corpus.

You are right of course about crypt, knew that but did not take it into account in previous comment.
