Ok, we talked about it a bit in the chat box, so it got me thinking. How random is the dice code? So I pulled the data from the database and crunched some numbers, and came up with the following results.

We have rolled 8361 dice. (Not counting dice rolled over 10 dice. Got a few 11-20 dice rolls in the testing center)

Breakdown of times each number has been rolled:
6's 1404
5's 1403
4's 1357
3's 1383
2's 1448
1's 1366

So we are most likely to roll a 2 then a 6, 5, 3, 1, and finally 4.

I'm no statistician, but I can link to the raw data if anyone feels like playing with it.

It looks like a reasonable spread to me.

Yes, and it means that Justin's double 4's actually are remarkable.

Without going too much into the math that distribution is within the expectations of a fair d6.

Unless I screwed up my math, which isn't impossible.
