Upright Bass Practice

I am using the List Randomizer to randomize lists of music chords so as to improve my skill at sight-reading music by practicing moving quickly from one chord to another on my musical instrument (upright bass) without either mind memory or ‘finger memory’ interfering by allowing me to increasingly do the exercise without actually having to read the chords. (I have found this to be a major fault with books supposedly designed to improve sight-reading.)

While I am sure that for this rather pedestrian purpose, a PRNG would serve as well as a TRNG, yours was the first List Randomizer I found after long web sessions of searching, and it's perfect for what I need. The nondeterministic feature of your TRNG—while perhaps overkill for my purpose—is definitely appealing.

Safe Password Generation and Disposal

Many thanks for your interesting and useful site. The various interfaces are nice and clean, direct to the point. I recently used the list randomizer and integer generator (over the secure connection, of course) to create a truly random password. Once I had it memorized and had to dispose of the slip it was written on, I went through a fairly rigorous obfuscation process to obscure the data on the paper, then cut it up into pieces, and used your random value generators to decide which pieces were going to go into which garbage cans.

Choosing Lunch Venue

Thank you for Random.org. I use it for several of the reasons other people mention. My favorite use, however, is deciding where my work colleagues and I will go to lunch every Thursday. We tried voting, but we were unhappy with the results—someone would end up disappointed that their choice wasn't picked. So, now we put all of our choices into the ‘list randomizer’ and generate a list that we visit in order. It works great!

Conducting a Linguistics Study

For the experiment I'm conducting for my MA thesis (linguistics) I needed to create a randomised list. The experiment contains 36 times an order of three pictures, of which the participant needs to select one as correct. The order of these three pictures had to be one of the 6 possibilities for each of the 36 items (ABC, ACB etc), and I had to make three different versions. Fortunately for me I found the list randomiser on your website Random.org. I gave each possibility a number, entered all six numbers six times and clicked randomise. Within a few seconds, I had three different versions of sequences! This saved me quite some time!

I will of course refer to the randomiser correctly in MLA style in my thesis.

Thank you for providing this free opportunity online.

Wildlife Sampling

I have used your random list generator, as well as your random integer generator, to pick cells in a grid that was over-layed a digital picture of an area in order to randomly select wildlife sampling locations. It has been a most useful program, and has saved me a lot of time in getting my wildlife inventory and monitoring program up and running. Thanks a bunch!
