Depends where you want to save them. Database? Memory? Text File? Serialized data?

If you seed the generator with a known value, you can re-generate the SAME string of "random" numbers any time by just reseeding the generator with the same number again. That way, you do not need to save the generated numbers in the first place.

I sure hope that you don't actually write your code like that, all on one line.

Please ignore post, I have no idea what I am talking about.
