    Talking Shaun the Sheep

    I personally quite like the Shaun The Sheep video - [nomedia="http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=qas27wHba4w"]YouTube - Shaun the Sheep - Still Life[/nomedia].

    On topic however, a quick search for "PHP password generator" would get you on track . For example: PHP random password generator.

    You could use uniqid() for something similar.

    What you want is a unique identifier rather than just a randomly generated password - i.e. not only should your ID be random, it should be unique (because you don't want two objects identified with the same ID string):

    [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UUID]Universally Unique Identifier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]
