If you're on Linux, you can read in true random numbers from the special
device /dev/rand and psuedorandom numbers from the special device
/dev/urand. There's also the "random" module in the standard python
distribution. Getting data from a website -- www.random.net, for
example -- is also perfectly doable with some HTTP scripting.
