The seed was "redstone" which numerically is "-766840204".
However, this thread was started in March of 2011 and, at best, the OP was using the Beta 1.3_01 version of Minecraft.
In any version 1.7.2 and later that seed spawns you in the middle of a large Ice Plains/Cold Taiga area.
Strangely enough, I tried "redstone " (with a space on the end). It is "1997757484" numerically.
The Amidst map indicated Extreme Hills and Extreme Hills + both north and south of spawn so I created the world, flew straight up from spawn and here's what I saw.
