Hi, I'd like to thank you for making this great random generator! I discovered it a few days ago, looking for an online random integer generator for this roleplaying game I am setting up, and Random.org has more than met the requirements! I also admit, its quite fun to generate tens of thousands of binary codes, and translate them in a binary translator, to see what the 'atmosphere' is saying. Anyways, thanks a bunch!

Dr. Haahr I used a list of your new random numbers in your new set generator for the dog races on Friday March 14, 2008. Using your sets on the last 4 of 13 races generated 2 trifectas. The sets I use are chosen by calculating over and over until the sets generated line up with the previous winning numbers. In this particular case I used races 1 thru 9 and matched them with the sets generated. Of course their is not a 100% match for all numbers. However the way the races are set up the 1st three finishing positions are the ones to key on.

I use random.org to generate random attribute numbers for sports video games when creating new players. Useful for putting my friends in the game without being tempted to make them really good. Most of the time they wind up as an average to good player, and every now and then they wind up as a superstar.

In our newest game, Starships, we have made extensive use of your random numbers. Your random numbers are used in everything from the dispersment of game targets, rewards, patterns of asteroids...well EVERYTHING that should be random. The human mind can tell when something is truly random, and when it isn't, so your numbers make everything in the game look and feel right. THANK YOU!

I'm using your random number generator to pick first and last names for characters from a spreadsheet for a computer game called "A Force More Powerful" - a game designed to teach nonviolent resistance groups how to fight for democracy without using violence.

My original reason to look for a random integer generator was to obtain some numbers for a lottery. However, independent of this specific intention, I wanted to use a "good and nice" generator. Then I found yours and I like the principle on which it is based very much. Also it is very convenient because it offers many options. It was just the perfect generator for which I was looking for! I appreciate your work very much to establish this random integer generator.

I'm an aspiring Dungeon Master (the guy behind the screen Toto warns you about) and I use Random.org for everything, nearly. Character stats, I simulate 6 sets of 3 six sided dice for a quick and dirty 'customized' character. If I need a map quickly, I use the Dungeon's Masters Guide dice tables and simulate about 100 dice rolls for dungeon layout, decoration, and monster placement. Random encounters, check. In fact I could use Random.org for all my needs, as the entire D&D game is based on the random rolls of 6, 8, 10, 20, or 100 sided dice. But where's the fun in that? I'm planning to move my computer (one of them) to my den so I can run rolls quicker than normal, but I think I'll keep my big bag o' dice at my side just to keep my players on their toes. Thanks for the great service!
