    Random Albums

    Just wondering how random the "Random Albums" feature is. I have seven albums by "I Am Kloot" and three of them appeared in my Random Albums list with two of them being the first two in the list.

    As long as we've had "random whatever" around, people have considered it
    not random enough... though all these features are using different
    implementations of randomization: some use Perl's, some the database's
    random function. Randomness is difficult - to implement as well as
    understand.
