Random stuff!

This page provides a selection of randomly-generated strings and hashes for use as passwords, API keys etc.

Please note the randomness is not produced using any significant amount of cleverness (hint - PHP's mt_rand() features heavily). Also, this web page is not secure (we aren't so generous we're willing to spring for an SSL certificate just for this), so overall you'd be ill-advised to use any key generated here for anything really secret squirrel. That said, this sorta thing is good enough for most of us, most of the time, for a quick FTP password or as a seed for something more secure, like PGP.

To generate a new set, just refresh the page. And no, we don't store any of these...
