This is a fascinating and insightful presentation on gaming development where he discusses the pros and cons of working in groups of developers for years at a time as opposed to working on games independently a few days at a time and pretty much everything in between.

I think that your constraints of "don't letterbox" and "support the same viewable area in both orientations" are irreconcilable. I think you need to relax one of those constraints somewhat, and then your question devolves into the already-asked-and-answered question of handling multiple resolutions (see the "Related Questions" sidebar for a collection of ...
Random number generator: you actually want a pseudo-random number generator that will give the same result for each player at the same situation. There are several ways to implement it, for example you may make the player agree a seed over the network then generate the pseudo-random number from that seed. Or you hash somehow the current game state and use ...
