How do you assign a random int to a variable more then once
say i use this code

import random
x = 1
while x == 1:
    random = random.randint(1,100)
    print random
    raw_input ("Push <enter> to print another random number")

It will print out the first random number but the second time it prints this error.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:/Documents and Settings/tony taylor/Desktop/Idearatizer/random.py", line 4, in <module>
    random = random.randint(1,100)
AttributeError: 'int' object has no attribute 'randint'

How do you get past this.
Thanks

Problem is you're naming your output variable random. Use another name!

After you do your import random you've defined an object named random that basically contains a bunch of procedures such as randint(). You're overwriting all that with some random integer and that's why you get an error the second time around.
