I'm looking for a good solution to scramble a number
into a code not easily recognizable as the seed value.
The seed I'm working with is a MAC address. Yes, I
shop at Wal-Mart. So what of it?

Anyway, largest MAC address likely would be
FFFFFFFFFFFF (HEX) or 281474976710655 (decimal).
So, I would probably have to declare a Single variable
type. I'm keying off the MAC address to make a NIC
specific application - the app's gotta move with the NIC.
If NIC is removed, app won't run. Cheap dongle. Don't
want it overly obvious that I'm seeding off the NIC so
I wanna scramble it. Seeking recommendations.

Search a little on md5. You can md5 anything, it yields a 32 bit and is
almost impossible to calculate backwards/
