Not really. A computer cannot do a true random generator. And since I can't use a use a lotto style ball machine, the chips are as close as I can get As soon as I get in all of the payments, I will draw the numbers on the chips. This may or may not be taped and live as I will not be at my apartment for the next 2 weeks. I'm going to take my webcam with me, so unless my 3 year old nephew doesn't allow me to do so, I will try to do the draw on ustream.

I am thinking about getting some poker chips and dropping them into a box to determine the draft order on this one. Its going to require some help live on ustream. More details to follow on that though.
Why stray away from random.org? I guess I dont understand that one...

See post 56 for reasoning behind that.

Yeah I mean it's not like a computer will favor a certain member or anything but in all seriousness the picking order is never 100% random. I like your idea.

Essentially.

I will be using 524 total chips. 1-262 twice in 2 boxes. I will use random.org to mix up the original list and use that to get the first set of numbers 1-262.

I will then draw a chip out of box 1. That chip will correlate with the number from the randomization.

Next, I will draw a chip from box 2. This chip will determine the spot that that first chip will draft at.

Example:

After random.org - 201. natbornkiller

Chip 1 - 201
Chip 2 - 6

Therefore - natbornkiller will get draft slot 6.



This will take a little bit of time, but is the best way to get the list as close to random as possible. I will require that someone watching help me by listing the chip numbers with the member and spot that it goes with.

I had mentioned before that this may or may not be done live. I have thought about that and will only do this if it is live. If I am not able to do it, I will do the list as usual with random.org. I don't foresee not being able to do it live, but just in case.

I can help you with that assuming it fits my schedule.

We are full! I will put in the totals here momentarily. Moving to active to start taking payments.

Please submit payment to pskell02@yahoo.com. Mark as goods and include your member name in the notes.
