Hello! After watching a whole day of "Journey into cryptography" at Khan Academy, I have got to know the secrets behind some sneaky things! . This is one of em', A PRNG (Pseudo Random Number Generator). Its features (atleast what I believe) are: Simple, short and crappy. Great for beginners who are baffled by the mechanics of random number generation in computers! Support for custom seeds! EIGHT DIGITS OF RANDOMNESS!!! Unlike all other PRNGs, This one is predictable 1000 possible PRNs when using @MSEC as the seed. No option for min or max, the min is 10000000 and the max is 99999999.

P.S NEVER USE THIS FUNCTION IN A REAL WORLD IMPLEMENTATION OF SOMETHING WHICH USES RANDOM NUMBERS!!! THIS ONE IS VERY UNSUITABLE FOR THAT PURPOSE! READ THE POSTS BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION.
