Got my GUID workin’

Here’s my GUID.  I have decided that this number will be MY GUID from here on.

In case you don’t know, a GUID is a Global Unique ID.  We use it for unique identification in progamming data applications.  Whenever you need a unique ID there is a function that you can call that genertates this random number, that supposedly won’t come up again for 700 years.  It isn’t perfect, but it is pretty unique.

In the future, I suspect we’ll all have some kind of unique ID and I figure I’ll get mine early.

    in a few years people will see your ID and think "wow, you must have been one of the first to get an ID, it’s only got numbers and letters in it!"
