i use vscode, and the .run extention is being weird, so it might be that, but idk. if you have any ideas on how to make this work, please let me know.

#Start computer move

#see, i first define vars

#i then exicute the actual move before the while loop, to establish secondary board saves for the while loop

#after that i initiate the while loop, eliminating any possibility that the computer will not move

#now i just need to do a wincheck… a very, very lengthly wincheck, including every possible win scinerio, that will take forever to write.

#well, that wasnt too bad… thank god for copy and paste. now i just print the board and move on to the players turn.
