Sadly my AI is mediocre at best.
But for someone who doesn't play othello, I think I did quite well with my
AI algorithms :)
If you or anyone would like to offer advice on playing tips I can add to
the AI, I am always open to suggestions ...yes, there are sites, but

I'll get it good enough to beat you one day ;)
