Hello, All! At work we have encountered a most annoying phenomenon: Seeding a random number using SeedRandom results in DIFFERENT random numbers on PCs and MACs with the SAME seed! This is very bad. Has anyone else noticed this? Does anyone have a work around? Incidentally, this is running version 2.2.2. Mark Reeve, Ph.D. XonTech, Inc.
