Generating Random Numbers in Ruby

I don’t see any reason to have the delay, connectivity requirement and potential integrity issues that comes with using a web service, for something as trivial as getting a random number.

I am not saying this is the most optimal solution for the given problem. But it is a true solution.
And honestly, trivial?

And delay? How about 16k+ random bytes?

Depending on internet connection, just making the request and connect to the server can be a noticeable delay, regardless of how little data is then sent in the response body. If there is no connection the plugin will not do anything at all until the timeout finishes.

Yes, but let’s take your answer from up here:

Since we do not all own such a magic card, I’ll use my networks card to achieve the very same true randomness, since:

RANDOM.ORG offers true random numbers to anyone on the Internet. The randomness comes from atmospheric noise, which for many purposes is better than the pseudo-random number algorithms typically used in computer programs.
