While The Register was out in Palm Springs, we had an email from an academic at the Department of Parapsychology at Edinburgh University. That department came into being because Arthur Koestler left money in his will to set it up. The academic said he was interested in Intel's hardware random number generator (RNG) because if it was truly random, it would allow proper testing of psychic abilities. We pitched this one to an Intel spin paramedic. He suddenly went all paranoid on us and said: "The RNG is a part of the Pentium III platform and is not yet available." We talked to the ghost of Mother Shipton and she told us that it is set to be available in Autumn this year. ®
