15:29 mikemol My EntropyKey arrived. I'll probably play with it tonight.

16:07 * mikemol grumbles
16:08 mikemol I need some good examples of retrieving TXT records on Windows.

16:57 Coderjoe_ mikemol: I'm curious how much entropy the capacitor has in it
16:58 Coderjoe as, currently, it seems to be doing a good job of keeping the pool above 2000
17:05 mwn3d_phone joined #rosettacode
17:07 mikemol Coderjoe: I'm pumping entropy from inara right now, because the entropy capacitor wasn't charging enough over a weekday night.
17:08 Coderjoe yay.
17:08 mikemol Though if you ssh in, sudo to root and run screen -xURR, you can see it.
17:12 Coderjoe i wonder what kind of effect the capacitor's slight re-ordering (based on where it samples or injects based on other consumers or producers) has on the randomness
17:12 Coderjoe s/injects based on/injects in relation to/
17:16 mwn3d_phone1 joined #rosettacode
17:35 mikemol me shrugs
17:36 mikemol It'd add a slight degree of randomness, but not something quantifiable and usable in the entropy pool itself.
17:37 mikemol And I don't want to add anything to it that would try to have it create data and inject it; the entropy capacitor must remain a simple, single-purpose tool.
17:37 mikemol That's my design philosophy for it, and I'm sticking to it. :)

17:48 Coderjoe I wasn't suggesting deliberately attempting to create data. I was just wondering about if the reordering might cause it to be slightly less random or anything. Is the capacitor's discharge being tested with FIPS or anything?
17:49 Coderjoe (like going through that other program you're using for piping the data from elsewhere)
18:33 mikemol no
18:34 mikemol If anything, the reordering would make things more randomn.
18:34 mikemol *random
18:34 mikemol Albeit, random in the sense that it's a nondeterministic process.
