Valuable Password Tool

Through extensive googling and slight exploration a meter to measure your password strength, PasswordMeter.com, has been found. This is a GNU license and free to use. Just click on the link, for now. This software is made available by MetaBetaGeek.com. Am presently researching the possibility to embed it here permanently. Also trying to rack my feeble mind and remember how to do it. MetaBeta Geek was good enough to post a download of the meter. Now I must stir my memories of HTML and see if I am capable of attaching the meter legally to Cybersouth. Here's what it looks like:

Nice job and I hope it can be used on Cybersouth. His article about developing this software is interesting. He also has other unique tools. And hey, he's a blogger! Kudos MetaBeta!

I actually downloaded it, extracted to a file and dropped an executable on the desktop. Got to relearn how to push this up to Cybersouth.
