Just to let you all know I used PHP's unique ID generator to generate a unique id for tracking purposes. I than md5 it hide the format a bit, would this be enough? Or can be easily worked out also? Need it pretty tight and keeping the likelyhood down of having multiple listings of id's. It's using 32 chars.
