random effect

Everyone that knows me can tell you how much I enjoy the random effect. Even when you have all things sorted out, some random seeding can bring something truly exceptional to your work. Here are two printscreens from some VB tests I've made years ago. Any geek out there can tell you that there is nothing less random than a computer random decision. In order to your computer could seem random, it will execute several mathematical equations using, as seed, your time or a list of numbers previously created. There are a few ways it can pretend to be random but really it is just pretending.
The best way to see that is to really visualize your data. In the following pictures you can tell that there are areas more populated and some regular textures being created. The slower the delay between routines and procedures the less random it will look.
