Yeah that is not decrypting. Care to tell us why you are intending to brute force a members password?

As has been stated, hashing and encrypting are completely different concepts. It is not possible to "dehash" passwords. As for "120GB rainbow tables", they would need to be generated for each individual member.

We will not, however, assist you in any of this. I'm sure that you can understand why.
