DiceWare Password Generator

I saw a cool little mention about DiceWare password generation on Twitter today and since it was the end of the work day, I decided to throw a quick little password generator tool together and share it. The technique as well as more detailed information can be found here

The way it works is by using a 6 sided die to roll 5 separate numeric digits which are appended together to form a single 5 digit number.  Each 5 digit number represents a single word, which is chosen from a list of 7,776 words. So if you want a password that is 7 words long, this process would be repeated 7 times to select 7 different words in a completely random fashion.  Secure, not impossible to memorize, and quick to generate!

This solution was designed to work with FileMakerGO or FileMaker Pro v12 or later.
