You known that this produces a floating point number between 0 & 1 (i.e
your case 0 & case 1 statements will just about never be executed?

1.) Frederick, you’re always helping me out

2.) I didn’t realize that about floating points, I want either one or
zero, of course.

3.) I use svn at http://code.google.com/p/dwemthys/source, and I can go
back a few revisions for an example where it seemed to work (prior to
putting in the db stuff) and the number of iterations matched the number
of objects instantiated.

4.) I’ll do a couple prints and so forth on this angle, I seem to
recall
a built in ruby method for converting float to int, too.

rand(n) with n integer gives you random integers less than n
