I recently posted the VB.NET Mersenne Twister code (rewritten from C# courtesy of Paul Vick) over at ILoveVB.NET.  If you haven't looked at it before, it's pretty neat stuff. It wasn't even possible in VB.NET 1.1 because of a lack of support for unsigned integers, with VB.NET 2.0 that problem went away.

If you don't know what a Mersenne Twister is, or why I would want one over, say, System.Random or System.Security.Cryptography.RNGCryptoServiceProvider then you may want to read this fine piece of writing first.

So there ya have it, if you're looking for some "true" random, and speed & security aren't big factors, go with the twister.
