    solitaire oddity (XP Pro SP-1)

    Here is a question of absolutely no importance, except that it has me intrigued. Solitaire on XP has a new set of card decks, different from the decks that were in earlier Windows versions that I have used. As you know, if you don't select a particular deck, the game opens with a randomly chosen deck each time you start Solitaire. Here's the curiosity: the last one of the twelve possible decks is a green background with little yellow racing cars. There are 3 WinXP machines in this office, and after thousands of games, no one has ever had the race car deck show up, but everyone has seen the other eleven. What gives?

    It sounds like the programmer used the formula to generate a random number between 0 and 11 without including 11 in the range,
