I was thinking about random number generation the other day, and it got me thinking about a web service for this.

Now, I came up with an idea for seeding a random number generator as a web service. See, when a client connects for a seed, they send a packet of 1024b containing, anything. That, along with thier IP gets dropped into a rolling 5mb file on the server, which gets translated into an MD5 hash. The hash gets cached and returned to the clients so that they can seed a random number generator.
