I think DJ was even cleverer (is that a word?)... and that he asked the problem KNOWING that to answer it, one must make an assumption about how the random number is determined.

(I think so, because I submitted a problem doing exactly that :-)... hopefully, it will come get posted in the next year or so.... :-)
