in reply to What numbers are you going to focus on primarily in 2020?

Implementing a random number generator using a Geiger counter and a piece of natural uranium ore i found.

(And before you ask, yes i have that piece of ore in a very thick and heavy lead container)

.
perl -e 'use Crypt::Digest::SHA256 qw[sha256_hex]; print substr(sha256_hex("the Answer To Life, The Universe And Everything"), 6, 2), "\n";'

    Are you related to one of my college schoolmates who kept a jar of uranium salts in his room? He also had one of the very first personal computers from, I think, MITS, back in 1972 or '73.

      Unlikely. I'm from Austria if that information helps ;-)

      perl -e 'use Crypt::Digest::SHA256 qw[sha256_hex]; print substr(sha256_hex("the Answer To Life, The Universe And Everything"), 6, 2), "\n";'

        It does. If I recall (no guarantee; it was close to 50 years ago), he was from Indiana.
