As a word of advice, first thing that a cracker/script kiddie does if they know what they are doing is look for repeated usernames as passwords and then if that doesnt work, they do solid number combos. So the best thing to do would be to make a password with numbers, and letters that are both uppercase and lowercase. A classic example of the username would be the classic user/admin attempt. But I'm glad that you took this as a learning experience although I would be mighty pissed if it was me.

As suggested, scan with john the ripper... It's works the same way the cracker would have done it. The best passwords are not based on dictionary words and include numbers, as they take most time to crack (thought if he's running a passwordcracker all month, he might find it, but I suppose you have enough time to detect him in that case...)
