One improvement that could be done to all of these password generators
is to make sure every password starts with a letter and ends with a
letter. That makes passwords more difficult by a little to crack. The
reason for that is mathematics. Numbers and special symbols have a set
size of 42 32 special symbols and 10 digits. Letters have a set size of
52 all lower-case and upper-case and the underscore. Why the underscore
is understood as a letter by some people I don't know I would have
thought that would have been a special symbol.
