Is this a virtual machine? Random entropy may be limited there. Try to
generate some entropy (e.g. by typing on your keyboard) or start haveged, the
entropy harvesting daemon.
main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Chris           get my mail address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*               gcc -o sig sig.c && ./sig    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
