I am so sorry I have'nt gotten back to you sooner.
I have completed the programs, and since then have written a tic tac toe game. Nothing flashy at all. I'm kinda new at this, so what can you expect. Anyway, I would be happy to take suggegstions for improvement of the game.
Here is the link to the code and the game. http://static.eos.net/michaeljamessmolin/tictac.zip
Thanks for any suggestions you have.
