A random number generator actually returns the next number from a long sequence of 'random' numbers that takes a long time until it repeats the sequence. The 'seed' just gives the starting point in this long sequence. So you should only call it 'once' (say at the start of your 'main') - rather than every time you ask for the next number.

It can't give an infinite number of random values (if you request random numbers fast enough it will eventually run out of "entropy" and block until more entropy is acquired).
