      BTW, what does Hyperbolic Sine have to do with Pseudo Random numbers?

        What is forgotten here is if that a PRNG or RNG is seeded with the same number at the start, regardless of the method used, that generator will yield the same sequence of numbers it did at the latest time it was seeded with that number. This is not to say anybody is cheating, it is to say the possibility is there if you know what to do and when and how to do it. Incidentally, I'm not paranoid. I don't normally play. I'm reasonably familiar with the operation of a computer and I can compute odds.
