Brute Force Password Cracker

I built the Brute Force Password Cracker as a fun program to test out passwords, and to test my knowledge of Python 3 and its libraries.

Horrible. Just doesn't work. Waited 45 minutes for it to crack "cyancoding" (with only lower case letters) and never cracked.

@generalpoxter: Hello! The reasoning behind this is that the password "cyancoding" is 10 characters. Even though you were only looking for lowercase letters, a 10 digit password is still very hard to crack. I don't completely agree with this website's algorithm, but if you enter passwords into it, it should give you a grasp of how much harder it is to guess when you add just one more letter (\).

@generalpoxter: it would take roughly 240 million tries to guess the password
