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 operating system random number generators i.e. it appears to be more random. The CheapRandom algorithm, an original work by Bardi Einarsson, has been in use for 6 years.
