i'm working with AIR, and neglected to notice that my solution is AIR-specific.
i believe omar is working on a non-AIR-specific solution to generating the machine+process ID portion of an ObjectID, not sure which route he's taking. in the meantime, you'll have to edit out the NetworkInfo and NetworkInterface parts and use the block within if ( useRandom ) { } instead.
