I agree that the description of baekdal's use case is pretty limited, 
and his math may be optimistic. OTOH this page seems to cast doubt on 
the idea that even comparatively simple passwords can be cracked in very 
short time periods, and more importantly that length is more important 
than complexity in any case:


On the other other hand, if passwords are so easy to crack, why use them 
at all? :)
