    I've been waiting for a month to post this (yesterday), and then I
    missed it. Oh, well, it's funny and deserves to be republished on its
    ten-year-and-one-day anniversary.

    BTW, a member of the ANSI C committee once told me that the only thing
    rand is used for in C code is to decide whether to pick up the axe or
    throw the dwarf, and if that's true I guess "the typical libc rand" is
    adequate for all but the most fanatic of gamers .
