Hi, how about other seed values ? I thought seed=0, is (often) used to mean a "random", i.e. current time or alike, seed value ... !?
Not really. A fixed seed means you will always get the exact same serie of numbers. The seed is the initial condition of your random generator, and a random generator is a totally predictable, deterministic process. The (pseudo) randomness is a consequence of having a random, unknown seed, causing the serie to behave seemingly random to most statistical tests. This can be time, keystrokes, etc...
