and writing about web page http://richardwinskill.co.uk/Random/dond.php
I’ve just thrown together a script the generates the numbers 1 to 22 in a random order and presents them as a rough approximation to the UK (obviously) DoND boxes. The presentation needs a little tweaking, but the pseudorandom numbers seem to work properly.
As I say on the page, I accept no responsibility for you doing badly and reserve the right to worry about the mental state of anyone who would blame me for them losing…
Think of a number, multiply it my two, add your age, half it, add the individual digits together repeatedly until you have a single digit, subtract it from the number you first thought of, ignore the minus sign (if any), and that’s the box you choose for Deal or No Deal; well, it makes about as much sense as any other method…
Seriously, though, I know this entry is coming quite a way into the show’s life (I usually manage to avoid it, so don’t often think about it), but how on earth did we get a game show based around the concept of choosing random numbers!? And how did Noel Edmonds get back on the air (not that I have anything much against him, he’d just been off the telly for so long…)?

I bought a packet of safety pins recently and found this in the bag as well:
It's the eye of a needle and only a little bit of a shaft; the end is clean, so it hasn't snapped off. It's sitting in front of an penny for comparison.
