I've asked this in the CB and felt stupid.
What's the point of the "salt" in "crypt"?
Please don't point out that crypt isn't professional-level encryption, I'm not using it, I've just never got the point of the salt part.
It makes the encrypted thing more random (because you choose the two characters), and therefore more secure? But then it saves the two characters, so if someone was trying to crack it, that would help, not hinder them, right?
