Password security: It would take 408 thousand years to crack my password

My mom found a fun site:  How Secure Is My Password?

Because I am paranoid I didn't enter my exact passwords, but I tried similar types to what my passwords really are.  The web site says it would take a PC any where from 6 thousand to 408 thousand years to crack my passwords!

OK, now I am scared that their computer has several "leads" on your password. :)

That's fun!

Happy Elf Mom - Since I tried made up passwords which were similar in complexity I feel pretty safe, so even if this site is trying to harvest passwords I don't think they'll get much of a head start.

Also I use a different password for each account.

Luke - Yeah it is pretty fun.
