If the forum expresses irritation, then we can take it offline.  Otherwise, I will treat them like I like to be treated ... voyeurism can be a good thing. 8^)

Rather than (or in addition to) using pseudo-random number generators, do something like:

1) https://api.random.org/guidelines,
2) use other numbers, like the number of hits you get when you google something (e.g. a source code function),
3) invoke a script engine and allow me to place some scripted functions on a website that you import and execute,
4) pass along some subset of the functions you're using, perhaps in pseudo-code, so that we can modify or suggest different ones that you then incorporate.

Of these (3) is the most interesting to me.  But even (4) would be cool.
