TicTacToe equivalent with a twist using …

I made this game equivalent to tictactoe but with a slight twist called find the X between two players using socket programming with Java. Don’t know where I went wrong in trying to find the X but for some odd reason my count variable never updates allowing the victory message to never pop up.

Basically the game is as follows, the dealer starts by placing the X then the spotter has to guess where it is by placing the O. Still quite new to Java and socket programming, I followed a few Java socket programming examples which is what led me to the code as shown below:

The client and server uses the .startsWith() function to fetch the necessary inputs for the corresponding areas. Thus, by using keywords such as “MOVE” alongside with Integer.parseInt(variable.substring()) it is able to get the location on the board.

PiiQ Media Releases Fortune 100 Company Executive Cyber Risk Report | Region

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sep 23, 2020–

PiiQ Media concludes a cyber security risk assessment of exposed online PII for top executives across all US Fortune 100 companies. The assessment was conducted using PiiQ Media’s Threat Intelligence software, automating risk analysis and scoring of exposed PII across the top social media platforms. The results underscore the extreme weakness in personal social media, email, and password security. The effects of these vulnerabilities have devastating effects on corporate risk and enterprise data security for companies large and small.

PiiQ Media ran a comprehensive information security assessment of top executives for the highest valued companies in the US. The premise being, even companies with the largest security budgets and security teams are likely not implementing effective measures to improve employee personal security and thus have blind spots in corporate security. The results are more startling than we expected. Collectively, we have a serious problem.

Whale Strandings: Some Notable Events

At least 380 pilot whales have died in a mass stranding in southern Australia, officials said Wednesday, in what is likely to be the biggest beaching of the cetaceans in the country’s history.

Here are other notable mass strandings of whales from around the world.

New Zealand — considered as one of “hotspots” for whale strandings — has recorded incidents dating back to the 1800s.

The country’s largest reported mass stranding took place in 1918, when 1,000 whales beached at the remote Chatham Islands.

Mee Katee noodles are served at the Khao Noodle Shop, a tiny spot in East Dallas where chef Donny Sirisavath is making exciting dishes based on the Lao food of his childhood.

None of Texas’ other major cities are mentioned in the blurb, other than to say that “Lao food plays a big role in [Dallas’] current status as a food city after sitting in the shadow of Houston and Austin for years.” Maybe that’s a back-handed compliment. Maybe it’s true?

The article mentions Khao Noodle Shop, a Laotian restaurant that got lots of deserved attention when it opened in late 2018. It’s located in
