For instance, if you have 10 GPUs, it would only take you a single year (if we assume the worst case. 6 month on average)!

Again, brute-force (or mask attack) is most likely the worst strategy you could come up with.
Dictionary attack (maybe with some suitable rules) would make much more sense if the password was not completely/pefectly random

Interesting that you say that! It only took me 2 months or so to mine what's currently in the wallet, so it's not really worth it for me to waste even 6 months of searching.

If making the dict/rule set doesn't work I think I'll just purchase what I lost and go back to mining. This was fun and I learned something new anyway. Thanks again. I could tell you were really trying to make me help myself.
