If you only go by this program's name, you might expect it to be, well, lame. However, this freebie makes quick work of generating as many passwords as you'd ever need. First, you choose a mask from the drop-down menu to specify whether you want your password to consist of uppercase or lowercase letters, numbers, special characters, or a combination thereof. You also can add extra characters to the preset masks to make the passwords even tougher to crack. In addition, the utility lets you reconfigure the actual characters the app uses for masks. Happily LameGen can create as many passwords as you like in almost no time. In our tests, the app turned out 1,000 alphanumerica keys in less than 30 seconds. Although we'd definitely call the program a one-trick pony, it will prove useful to system administrators or anyone else who needs to whip up a large batch of passwords.
