[ex. from e-mail exchange: CAcert Research Labs Q&A]
Thinking of new ways of gathering entropy is a general topic of interest to me and I´ve developed some experimental pseudo-random generators in the process. No measurement of radioactive emissions, no lava lamp, webcam, static noise of receivers, confused or stray electrons, voodoo, black magick++, recursive squaring a number whilst taking away nixie tubes from both sides, CPU-jitter or functional speculative sideband crosstalk measurement involved, the core design of the generators I'm currently working is based on candidates of NP class math conjectures that are less likely to produce high entropy, chaotic sequences. As a reference to submissions and for those interested I keep a journal dedicated to this project __here__ containing some preliminary results, reports on development, and progress. I offer sample data produced with some output of experimental pseudo random generators for free, this output is chosen from generators that that proved to produce enough variation at each iteration, with the desired stability, to be subject to statistical tests, perhaps that data can be reduced or transformed in some pseudo-random function, turning it into a state machine to derive new chaotic sequences or serve pseudo-random functions. Don't blame me if these data files suddenly catch fire, as the contents of some files are "almost everywhere" very dense.
In some ways, I'm trying to compete with particular hwrng's, png's, cprng's, aprng's Geiger counters, and several Permutation-Based Hash functions, of which most have well-established properties. While it's true that most pseudo-random generators are equal, some are more equal than others. Measuring the qualitative performance of pseudo-random number generators turned out to be quite a challenge and sometimes even questionably paradoxical. Null periodicity?
"Good statistical properties are a central requirement for the output of a PRNG. In general, careful mathematical analysis is required to have any confidence that a PRNG generates numbers that are sufficiently close to random to suit the intended use. In some cases, attribution of qualitative properties of (cryptographic) pseudorandom functions is based on strong assumptions that are generally accepted for which proof is considered class NP".

John von Neumann cautioned about the misinterpretation of a PRNG as a truly random generator:
"Anyone who considers arithmetical methods of producing random digits is, of course, in a state of sin".

In the productive hours of my spare time I like to do wall decorations, make drawings and learn some programming(mostly [C] -std=/gnu/C/99). My precious next to the seminal works of Mr. Donald Knuth, TAOCP, which is Bible, I often find this book not only of great use and help, I own the revised edition that cheers up the day with it's practical example on a subject on page 269.
_uc(); by working out some of my ideas. I'm trying to make things blink on and off at an interval using an 8bit embedded Microchip PIC8/32 controller, macro magic, while at the same time, with a multidisciplinarian tpuch to it, my right hand is trying to cheat support for an old Soekris Hi/fn pci-e card in Linux that only works in 32bit DMA address space. I'm going to use it, one way or the other and on my terms, even if it will only work for ~1 hour depending where which random region PIC/PIE code will be, to the 2gb I've left due to running cinnamon for it's awesomeness that I totally don't need for just a compiler suite and VI, only console things, but for lookenpeepsen awesome I don't mind that it takes a ridiculously amount of system memory that I have to say.. hmm that's impressive, what does that mean a buffer that power2 takes, without asking questions, half of system memory. Seriously, I love working on lots of different (mostly very abstract) projects and I try to do most of them at the same time even sometimes to my surprrise, this happens in parallel, and not always fail. Luckily there are some tools that help me out with my chaotic mindsets. Vym for instance, is a simple mind-mapping tool that helps me organizing thoughts and ideas. Not to violate the laws of symmetry I also happen to own "10" copies of the book "Chaos" by Mr. James Gleick and "The Art of Looking Sideways". Strange loops..
SGI Indy R4400 Indycam set B/W, '90s diagnostics of a NIC, probably the one with SoC offloading features new at the time such as a lightweight onboard rudimentary TCP stack that ran on something linke an embedded RTOS like the one Windriver __link__ provides, stack provided some less latency from a certain perspective. I guess itś like the same idea some UEFI BIOS'es now also feature (0xD15EA5E), which system manufacturers of regular PC systems that put the kevlar on their products on wrong, perhaps intend to sell to 3th parties, to offload their OS visible "features" to a more robust environment that claims memory and cycls of the "host". Perhaps do also some ARP or encapsulating magick not on demand.
L' « effet papillon » est une expression qui résume une image concernant le phénomène fondamental de sensibilité aux conditions initiales en théorie du chaos.

# green phosphor CRT's. early years of me.
Green phosphor CRT, a micro-switched keyboard. Solid Metal. One of the first systems I played and worked with was a Kaypro 10 "Portable Computer", powered by a Zilog Z80 processor, portable meaning there was a handle attached to a side that allowed you to lift and carry that massive steel monolith around, which my father occasionally did for me (my father who worked at the F.O.M. institute at that time, he brought it from his office when I was young). The Kaypro 10 was the superior successor of the Kaypro 2, also a mighty impressive machine, both equal but the 10 was just a bit more equal. It had a built-in 300bps modem and a 10MB HDD, CP/M for OS that also provided with various versions of BASIC. This machine was built to withstand at least a 20 megaton nuclear blast, which reminds me of something, considering the zeitgeist I grew up, I probably did things like:
From PRINT to control flow with GOTO's, returning from GOSUBS's and casting arrays with DIM's and so on, with enough statements to to construct a simple text based adventures in BASIC, which I learned from a book (unfortunately I can't quite remember the title of that book) on how to construct text based adventures.
Technisches Spielzeug im Wandel der Zeit
I also used to own (first: was allowed to play with) a Commodore 64 of the "breadbox" type. At a later age I got several SX-64 systems. Looking somewhat similar to the Kaypro portable (see photo's below), the SX-64 was a portable Commodore 64, it held a a tiny color CRT and 1641 drive. I had a parallel XM/XE1541 cable to handle the for .d64 over to a Chinese clone of a 1541 floppy disk drive. I've kept the SX-64's for quite a while, watching recent productions from the demoscene that are truly amazing, to relive the magic, played games like "Impossible Mission", "Aztec challenge" and "Little Computer People" and of course "Wizard" for a while. I found a new owner for the last SX-64 I got, With the SID, the keyboard revised, I sold it when it reached to the age of 30.
We've gathered here this Thursday
to examine and debate
and reflect on our creation
and as well to celebrate
to dwell not on the history
nor technology as such
we've talked about those facts in our past events too much
instead we'll probe the impact
on the way we work and tweet
on pop culture and on content and the cyberfriends we meet
and the billion out there that create the apps we use
and the millions more to join us
with their visions and their views
Have a nice day
( unless your name is Eeyore ).
