I like to use a text filed with a constant number ‘1.3’. Now I like to add a random number between 0-9 every 10 seconds to this number - so that it reads as a static number for example 1.36 >> 10 seconds later: 1.32 >> 10 seconds later: 1.39 >> 10 seconds later: 1.30 …
Any help greatly appreciated…
Can not think of any thing off hand. As with all random stuff you have to fake it. Perhaps #DWE#*PI %Xor something like that.
Hello @russellcresser Thanks for the info - yes, I found something in one of your postings that might work well. Thanks again…
Let us know if you get stuck. Your Pong stuff tells me you are Running Free now. Enjoy.
Hi. I agree, the third digit (alternating with every 10 secs) can only be faked and even then it is hard to maintain it static during a second.
The rand function - rand(0,9)- changes the result a lot within a second. So, not static.
I tried to deduct the third required digit using the expression for MOONAGEPERCENT, truncated it on the 7th position, to have a digit that’s variable enough and use that to fill in the required third digit. It comes close to static and changes with every 10 secs into a new value. Hopefully the face remains awake to show its variability…
I hope it helps, if not, I tried.
Here’s a link to a face which clarifies hopefully:

Hello @pbervoets - thanks so much for the examples - these are very helpful and a good starting point!
Now that is Genius @pbervoets . That is right outside the box . Makes me want to go and try a bit of modulus on the moon Distance as well , we could get some truly Cosmic Random from that I am sure . I worked with some seriously clever people but I was the only Genius .Ha Ha .I have more more than a Handful Here . .
Now, I’m sitting on the moon right now! Trying to figure out, how do I ever come back to earth.! I do like the view.
Love what you did and still do on the forum and on Facer, learn(ed) a lot from you and your friends and will continue so. And that is, what life is about. Thanks!!
