Fixes #9 . The link was wrong. Rather than fix it, I removed it, since there's no point linking to the Powershell 5 installer when Powershell 6 is out. Plus there's less a need for a link now that fewer people are on Windows 8 or below.

Pronounceable Password Algorithm

Credit for the algorithm used to generate pronounceable password goes to Tom Van Vleck. I've made a few changes along the way:

  • The algorithm has been modified to take into account word endings
  • The data tables have been generated from a new source
  • I added the ability to mix in random character sets (such as digits and symbols) into the generated password
