I assumed that was obvious, I just printed a cound of 'found' passwords. I should tweak it to show me the usernames at least, so I can alert the users.

Just a side note here - you might want to double-check your company's policy on running a utility like this against a production database. At the very least, I would have to modify the script so that it would NOT show me what the cracked passwords are. Otherwise it would be cause for termination of my employment.
