If your friend was worth his salt as an algorithm writer, he'd be more than 
willing to let you post a mere 100 strings. For any good generator, this 
would be paltry compared to the number of strings it would take to figure out 
the algorithm.

But--he is probably making impossible claims here, anyway...

Perhaps your friend should pay heed to this as well.
