    The generator is initialized with

+   z{i+1} = (69069 * z{i}) MOD 2^32 where z0 is the seed provided
    During initialization a check is done to make sure that the initial seeds
    have a required number of their most significant bits set.
    After this, the state is passed through the RNG 10 times to ensure the
