Remarks

Random pool

The "pool" from which the random number is "chosen" can be initialized by InitRandom.
If InitRandom is not called, the random values generated by Random will be the same for each program execution.
WEBDEV - Browser code InitRandom is not available because it is useless: the random values generated by Random will be different for each program execution.
