Nick, I don't think that MAC address is that good.  The first octet should
at least be 02 and not 00.

The two last bits in first octet say if it is a locally administered or
globally unique (OUI) MAC-address and if its an uni- or multicast
So you want them to be 10 and not 00 (02:00:00:XX:XX:XX).

The other bits and octets you have zero can be any random bits you like,
like zero.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MAC_address
