Random numbers generation.

The quote from my Keynote Address at the 1984
Computer Science and Statistics: Symposium on the
Interface, still applies:

"A random number generator is like sex:
When it's good, its wonderful;
And when it's bad, it's still pretty good."

Add to that, in line with my recommendations
on combination generators;

"And if it's bad, try a twosome or threesome."

(Dagli archivi di sci.math.num-analysis, scritto da George Marsiglia. Che di queste cose [RNG] se ne intende.)

Credo che non lo includero' nel report.
