This seems a little pointless. Unless there is something I've missed L0phtCrack was abandoned because Rainbow Tables took over. Anyone who has the time to wait for a password to be cracked by brute force is probably not cracking your system. Similarly anyone relying on "strong" passwords to protect a system is probably not an admin of anything important and should strongly consider reading up on other forms of security like 2 factor authentication.
