From geek to geeks
Geeks - we all love unique and special things. Don't miss the opportunity to name an unique GUID and share it with the world. Free certificate included.
GUID? You know. They don't.
GUID is an acronym for 'Globally Unique Identifier'. It is a 128-bit integer number used to identify resources. Once created it cannot be recreated.
Certificate of uniquness
128-bits is big enough and the generation algorithm is unique enough that if 10^9 GUIDs per second were generated for 1 year the probability of a duplicate would be only 50%.
Leave no GUID without a name!
Every time I generate GUID I feel like I'm stealing one from the Universe. Sometimes I think about evil people who generate much more GUIDs than they need and those wasted GUIDs are so lonely not being used or generated again...
