setting an embedded data with javascript instead of a web service in qualtrics

qualtrics’ web service was a bit unreliable during the last days. It’s a problem because we use it to connect qualtrics and mturk. qualtrics support suggested to use javascript instead, in particular the Qualtrics.SurveyEngine.setEmbeddedData() function. It works nice, and I set up an example how it works.

so, if you have trouble with the random number generator, just stick this javascript in the first question (but AFTER the embedded data field has been created). Note that it takes one page break to actually update the value (see the example).
