and I am getting the error at every Dim r as New random()

any ideas

Well, the only constructor I see for the Random() class is

Public Sub New(ByVal bot As AIMLbot.Bot, _
ByVal user As AIMLbot.User, _
ByVal query As AIMLbot.Utils.SubQuery, _
ByVal request As AIMLbot.Request, _
ByVal result As AIMLbot.Result, _
ByVal templateNode As XmlNode)
MyBase.New(bot, user, query, request, result, templateNode)
Me.isRecursive = False
End Sub

So the instantiation process:

Dim r As New random()

will fail it because the constructor says you need 6 parameters
starting with "bot" parameter, hence the error.

Now the Random Class also inherits AIMLbot.Utils.AIMLTagHandler so it
may have a constructor with no parameters.

But that doesn't seem to be the case.

Overall, you need to put parameters in the instantiation statement:

dim r as New Random(x1, x2, x2, x4, x5, x6)

Are you intending to call new System.Random() or new
AIMLbot.AIMLTagHandlers.Random()? I actually get the error on the next line
where r.Next(...) is used.
