Since this thread is completely off-topic, but everyone else is
replying, I suppose I will too:

Check out http://www.random.org

Atmospeheric noise is the entropy source, "whitened" using the SHA
family of algorithms IIRC. This site is actually useful for things
like picking box numbers in the office Superbowl pool, as others can
witness (visually) that results were pulled directly from the
random.org site.
