That’s a remarkable string of characters, isn’t it? On the assumption that all combinations are possible, this algorithm is robust enough to produce 62^43 different combination, or just a bit over 10^77 possible blog posts. That’s roughly enough for one blog post every microsecond right up through the heat death of the universe.

Credit where it’s due: conservatives sure do plan ahead, don’t they?
