Bad news. The server hosting The Ruby Toolbox went bust on the evening of June 7th. While I do have backups, the original source code is in a very outdated state so I currently don't feel it makes sense to try and get it running again.

For the time being, here is a very stripped down version of the Ruby Toolbox's contents.

Update June 13th: I'd like to invite you to join the discussion on the future of the Toolbox on github. You can also get in touch directly on Twitter.

cheap_random

**CheapRandom** is a set of tools for pseudo random number generation from arbitrary data. The properties of the **CheapRandom seed** make convenient random number generation possible -- useful for easily repeatable software testing. The **CheapRandom algorithm** is information conserving and generally appears to produce lower chi-squared statistics than **Kernel::rand** i.e. it appears to be more random. The **CheapRandom algorithm**, an original work by Bardi Einarsson, has been in use for 6 years.
