i think there might be an issue with the code academy solution to the current battle hip puzzle. when running it doesnt seem to permit you to input the guess column? an example with the current solution is that if the vector is 3,3 …i.e the list element for row vs column is 3 , 3 …it tells you that you have sunk the battle ship if you put 3 in only the row…and it prints that in the "Guess column " raw input line as well. it doesnt give you the chance to guess the column.
