I was just looking at question where the user wanted a shorter Guid (thus probably negating their usefulness).
It doesn't negate it's usefullness; it's merely a random number. Make the number shorter, and you have a higher chance that you'll end up with a duplicate. Make the number longer (two guids concatenated) and the chance for a duplicate gets smaller.
Hard to beat the old 'dead fly' for dunking longevity.

I heartily disagree, only a philistine who put milk into tea would come out with a comment like that... tea should be high quality Taiwan Mountain tea, brewed in nothing but water and should be sipped and enjoyed, nothing should be dunked in it, coffee on the other hand should be strong enough for the spoon to very nearly stand up on its own in, and can happily be dunked so you can enjoy the flavor permeating your biscuit.
oh indeed, in fact is it even possible to be a coder without an unhealthy caffeine addiction that coffee satisfies so much more than tea, alcohol can do the same job of course but the results are so much more unpredictable, see XKCD's ballmer peak for details http://xkcd.com/323/[^]
