and after the sleep(rand(1,3)) it might need a short loop like this;
$rnd = rand(1,99999); $a=0;

to further randomize the retry attempt..
While this decreases the probability of a collision you're just setting up another race. They teach about this stuff in computer science... right around first year... or at least they once upon a time did.


Einstein I believe said something along the lines of

"A smart person solves a problem.
A wise person avoids it in the first place"

Might not have been Einstein, but anyway ...

Do you mean the following quote?

    The difference between a smart person and a wise person is that
    a smart person knows what to say and a wise person knows whether
    or not to say it.
