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.

@obwatts4: Hey! Your problem lies in the fact that you are guessing at a 10 digit number. Now, this doesn't seem like that long, but adding a single digit can severely change the length. For example, the password "aa" takes 1,045 attempts. However, the password "aaa" takes 98,241 attempts. That's a crazy increase for just one more letter. Also, your problem with it randomly stopping isn't mine, it's's (I believe) and I think it's happened to a few other users. I mentioned you in it so you can see it.
