This Sem's Linux Project: Genetic Algorithms

Well, this semester we have Linux System Programming, so, needed a project idea.
Have you all noticed the random seed being generated during boot up, well i that seed is also saved during shut down and added to the "Entropy Pool".
So what my idea is, that i can take the seed and generate a set of members from it and apply genetic generations to ir to make it more random.
Although, the fitness equation will have to be somehow depending on the amount of randomness.
The generator can be found in random.c and the the script in the "init" folder.
