Assuming you want a unique value, and you don't care if it's in order  
then you can just do

UUID new
-> e0090895-4a12-4ef6-82e0-9acefc76ff9c  -> asString36  ->   

that will be unique.

buf if you must start at 1 and go to infinity then you need to bother  
Semaphore forMutualExclusion
and do things like remember what the last number was...
more code and options to get it wrong.
