I have not aimed to produce a near unbeatable program, though some
improvements to the algorithms may be forthcoming. The first Entropy
program was written by Thad Frogley for which players are grateful.
But the instantaneous program turns could make it quite difficult
to discern what move the program had made. This program solves that
problem by animating moves by both Chaos and Order. When you use
the clock, time spent in program 'thinking', animation, and in looking
at the 'Instructions' panel is not added to the time display though
this would be quite small.
Note that if you are 'timed out' the message stating it will appear
only when you make your next move. However, the clock will read zero.
If the clock fails to appear it is because you omitted to press 'ENTER'
after typing your time limit into the text box - Tut, Tut!.
