There is a separate, rather painful, thread on chances, let’s not talk about that.
What I’m courious about is which number generator are they using
I understand SG might not be in the position of telling us exactly how they do it, but a statement that says:
“We use the [put the name of your favorite “good” Pseudo Random Generators here] PRNG and take the seeds from the Hardware Random number generator Y (/dev/random?). We all monitor the generated numbers with the usual statistical test (chi-square being just one) and they are guaranteed to be ‘random’ at 99.9%”
Would be very reassuring to me.
