Using Stata 8, I want to have a different seed each time I call an *.ado
file with uniform() in it. I recall setting seed to 'system time' in SAS and
in Stata... I think... and that worked well.

Now I cannot recall how to set a new "random" seed and it's driving me nuts.
I'm sure I'm missing something totally obvious but I cannot see outside of
my box.

Can someone help?

Thanks - Michael Oakes
