bash : Random number in OpenWRT

On some light linux environement running busybox or openWRT you will notice that you don’t have access to the $RANDOM variable ,
the date command is also incomplete so you can’t use the tail of the nanosecond date to have a random number.

.

Using this command you will get a random number beetween 0 and 60.
if you wish to change the range of the random numbers , just edit the sed s/0/60/ part
