Seeding Molecular Dynamics and Monte Carlo Simulations

I write and use molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulators which have their own pseudo-random number generators (for portability and reproducibility). These require the user to input a random number seed. If I want to perform an ensemble of N statistically independent runs (e.g., with different initial conditions), I need N independent seeds. So I use your site to generate seeds to paste into my input script, i.e., your random generator generates random seeds for input to a pseudo-random generator. Say that 5 times fast.
