[PD] Really random random from date and time

Hi list,

I'd like my patch to create a different random each time it's loaded.

I'm using [urn] so I tried feeding a [random 500] -> [seed $1( into the [urn], 
but every time it's the same result. According to the documentation "if you 
don't give it a seed then each instance of random gets its own seed" but every 
time I initiate the patch the result is the same.

Is there an object that will give me the current date and/or time, so that I can 
use that as a seed to the random and urn objects???
