— I'm abusing the outer OS scheduler interrupts to gather entropy for making some random numbers.


It's not a cryptographically secure random number pool yet. It just generates some 32bit integers that seem reasonably well equidistant.

— Let's start with why🤤 then, slowly to the details

— Great, some auto-generated integers.. i see🤤 and what will happen next🤔

— I don't know.

— If you tried reading the source to see how those integers were generated maybe it would be more cool.

— Next is exploring statistical analysis techniques for randomness and then if I want to I will turn it into a toy version of a urandom pool

— Why you strive for randomness.. don't you like stability and determinism🤤

— Isnt current random generators enough for this planet's problems

— Also, i see wrong naming, in the example max value is less than mid and avg

— Yeah, I know why that would be
