I know Riker came up with a program that'll make intelligent guesses for a password that you think may only be off by a character to two. It may help narrow down your search.

Anybody out there know how to access that?  Is it part of new NRS?

I think nxtnoob75 is referring to the myNXT master password, not to the Nxt account passphrase.

If you have a VERY close guess of your myNXT master password (if you think it really should work, but maybe due to some character error it does not) Cryptkeeper can privately offer help to figure out where the error is.

But if you lost your master password, and have no close approximation to it, I'm afraid you should consider the contents of your account lost, as warned during the myNXT registration process. The myNXT wallet uses heavy encryption algorithms, and bruteforcing an unknown master password would take many years.
