Never use new Random().nextAnything(); It is not as bad as it used to be under Java 1.4, but there is a risk of getting the same number sequence again.
Read the Random API documentation, and look carefully for what you quoted, namely nextInt(). You probably mean less than or equal to 255, so pass 256 not 255.
