enter a random 20 character pw made of only lower case letters. (However, x100 as I am using 1T not 100T pws/sec; thus: 65.90 thousand centuries x100 = 6590 thousand centuries) answer: 659,000,000years. is that correct?

Note: I didn't visit the site you showed, so I don't know what your question has to do with anything.

20725274851017785518433805270 looks about right ...
at 1 Tpws/s ... maybe 656,744,329.448937 yrs is a slightly better rough guess? 20725274851017785518433805270 / 1 T / (60 * 60 * 24 * 365.25)

Thanks for atleast visiting the site prior to posting an answer. Yes, you are correct. Even using 100T pws/sec (their speed), I could rest assured spooks wont break my encrypted files in atleast 6m years even if using only lower case letters.
