Primarily, the AI routines are pretty miserable. At present, none of them can beat me (and I'm no expert). Possible brains could include those that use neural nets to learn optimal behaviour or using game trees (RTFM).

When I work out how to do it (help appreciated) the ability to connect to IOS (Internet Othello Server) would be useful to both test brain modules and play against other people. I've made a start trying to adapt the client source code for unix but haven't had much luck with GUSI.

Minor bug: I need to change the routine that reads in files so that it ignores the Icon file generated by a custom icon on the Brains folder.
