Is it just me, or have there been more problems achieving
real statistical randomness since /dev/random went in, than
at any other time in BSD history?
I booted a 1.5 system a couple of times for grins.
It gives you a different fortune each time.
Note that 1.5 "lacked" /dev/random.
Perhaps it's time to rename it as /dev/deliberate?
