randorando: a Simple Random Number Generator

Purely in service of scratching a personal itch, I wrote a very simple Web app that generates a random number within a set of numbers defined by the user. Enter the highest number in your set–the app assumes that the minimum is 0–and hit the Enter1 key. You’re then presented with your random number.

The app calls out to an API provided by random.org, a service which provides “truly” random numbers using a method based on radio sampling of atmospheric noise.
