comment Deterministically combine more than one source of entropy
hah, sry, when I first saw that expression, I was thinking it was something like a trigonometric identity (e.g. 1 - sin^2 x); But I see now it's just a reference to binary order-of-magnitude.

comment Deterministically combine more than one source of entropy
@CodesInChaos huh, yes I could. Is that the proper way to combine two sources of entropy? [fwiw, it's javascript, so I have Math.random for free, but would need to implement sha1/another hash in code.]

@fgrieu thank you, I will switch over to that MAC convention [I have used that style before, but had forgotten about it -.- ]
