Nice question really had to dig deep into my memory to, well answer the question.

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Easy question - if you know the answer.

This was so easy I answered right away without hesitation. Then, I noticed it was a two point question and that gave me doubt. Those two point questions always have some twist to them. So, I looked up the definition of deterministic to make sure I understood the word correctly.

Definition: In computer science, a deterministic algorithm is an algorithm which, in informal terms, behaves predictably.

Also, for those interested, Steve had a nice post about this function on June 28, 2011:

I got it right but I was scared to push that submit button.

Great question as it taught me about Hashbytes, which is something I did not know about.

Nice question, but quite easy as hash functions are deterministic by design.
