Everyone seems to be backing Rick up bye saying we should hav helped
more. I saw Rick get more hint than probably anyone. Usualy people get
links to a page to read for themselves, he actually got some code and
even the outright answer. If Rick is all pissed off because he didn't
read the responses to his email, and if he was confused about a response
then reply to that. It's a collaborative effort here. We don't don't
what you know Rick. We knew you know how to make a random number from
0-10, and i told you below in this forwarded message to just to a +5.
If you don't know how to do that, then reply and say, "but I don't know
how to do that". Is it possible the teacher wanted to see who in the
class already knew how to do it so he knows better where to start? Who
knows, I'm sure he has his reasons for assigning an impossible
assignment that probably only a couple in the class knew. The fact of
the matter is, we _did_ help you. If you want to be all fussy about it
because you want to be lazy, then you shouldn't be programming anyway.
Programming is about working with other people (rarely is it done by
yourself in my experience) to solve problems.

A better solution than the one i just posted would be to set it to do
random numbers from 0-10 and do a +5 to it :-) don't know why I didn't
think of that 2 minutes ago.
