Where does a calculator get a random seed from? Answered
Most, if not all, scientific and graphing calculators have a #RAND button on them, this generally generates a random number between 0 and 1 (I think).
Now, as we all (might) know, a calculator is a computer, and thus thinks in logic and cannot generate a truly random number, and, as we also (might) know, any pseudo-random number generated has to come from a seed value.
Some things take it from the time and date, others from the time between a user's input, I have even heard stories of a program asking a used to 'bash wildly on the keyboard like a monkey'. So my question is this:
Where does my calculator get its seed value from?
By the way, I cut it into paragraphs to make it more readable
