Generating Photocopier Codes

Dear Mr. Random,

I used your random generator. I am an office specialist at a University department. It is my responsibility to enter and close out all the accounts on our department copier. The copier does not allow me to actually erase existing accounts. Since you need a 8-digit passcode to access your account and use the copier, I instead ‘close’ the account by changing the passcode on that account to something the previous user will not know.

This month I'll have to do around 200 such entries on the copier. I got sick of devising my own numbers, so I searched on the internet for a random number producer, and I found you. It was fun producing numbers. I definitely fulfilled my geek quota for the next year.

Composition for Violin, Clarinet and Piano

I am currently using your random number generator to produce lists of numbers from 0 to 11 (notes in the chromatic scale) and 0 to 6 (notes in a diatonic scale) that will later be assigned pitch names and used in a musical composition entitled, ‘Millennial Chances’ for violin, clarinet, and piano … a work commissioned by the Verdehr Trio, a trio in residence at Michigan State University. I wanted a composition whose pitch set is derived from random processes and have plans to to several more in the same vein. I've been looking for several years for a resource such as this as was pleasantly surprised to find your wonderful and useful tool.
