    That’s funny. My PhD is on the generation of random papers.

    Wonderful paper! You can read it again and again and it’s never the same!

    I’d reject the paper version, but I could accept the postscript if the first digit would be more random than almost always 2.

    It’d be a lot more acessible with a PDF or plain-text version.

    Oh that’s too funny. Hey, over at nextquant there are a couple of recent posts on the Quantum Random Number Generator and Quantum Random Bit Generator services provided by the Ruder BoÅ¡kovic Institute. Also, Aaron, Adobe Reader will usually convert postscript to PDF automatically. The Preview app for Macs does the same thing (oh, how much simpler life is with a Mac…).

    Sorry there is no plain-text version. I’ve thought about a PDF version but haven’t figured out how to write that paper yet.

    Dave: for PDF javascript + forms *might* be able to do it. Something refreshing about an ostensible document format being Turing-complete.
