Password Encrypter ?

Faced with a gazillion dictionary attacks, I wrote a crappy Javascript program that converts easily remembered passwords into a string of garbage e.g. 1234 becomes =O*02ydeOo9k etc.

You just cut and paste the encoded password. Anyhow, it works for me and my fellow admin.

Obviously, I can't post the source code, but it works on the enigma machine principle.
