To my surprise, this thing is actually working incredibly well for how I am abusing timers and OS task scheduler process interrupts in order to gather entropy for a reasonably random number source.

I've been experimenting with these types of tricks for a while. Maybe I will build it up into a proper -- somewhat cryptographically secure -- mixed random number pool source. I will have to look into how people go about doing that I guess.
