Hi everybody,

on a clean download of NodeBox, every time I add a new polygon to my network, NodeBox application returns an error: unable to import random for the file at line 2 : from random import seed as _seed , uniform .

Now I know this is an UGLY hack, but I found a work around:
I unzipped the in Java.lib
I added the following 2 lines to at the very beginning of the file:
import sys

Now I am able to use polygons.

Enjoy Noding,
