    Default Wordguess program wouldn't run

    This is my wordguess program but it wouldn't run. THis is similar to the hangman game on iphone
    import java.util.Random;
    import java.util.Scanner;
     
    public class Wordguess123 {
    public static String replaceCharAt(String s, int pos, char c) {
        return s.substring(0,pos) + c + s.substring(pos+1);
     }
     public static void main(String[] args){
            Scanner Jerry = new Scanner(System.in);
            Random Rong = new Random(10);
            String word;
            boolean guess = true;
            int i = 0;
            String win = "YOUWIN!!!!";
            System.out.println("This is Jerry Rong's wordguess game!");
     
            switch (Rong.nextInt()) {
     
                case 1: word = "PROPORTION";
                break;
                case 2: word = "DISTANCE";
                break;
                case 3: word = "MOMENTUM";
                break;
                case 4: word = "HELLO";
                break;
                case 5: word = "GRAPHIC";
                break;
                case 6: word = "ACCELERATION";
                break;
                case 7: word = "ENERGY";
                break;
                case 8: word = "NINJA";
                break;
                case 9: word = "FINALS";
                break;
                default: word = "CHRISTMAS";
                break;
         }
     
         int length = word.length();
         String blank = null;
         for (int h = 0; h < length; h++)
         {  blank = "_" + " ";}
     
         System.out.println(blank);
         String PeoplesGuess = blank;
     
         do {
          i++;
          String letter = in.next();
         letter = letter.toUpperCase();
         if (letter =! "!") {
     
            for (int k = 0; k < length; k++){
     
                        if (letter.charAt(0) == word.charAt(k)) {
                            current = replaceCharAt(current, k, letter.charAt(0));
                        }
     
                    }
     
            if (current.equals(word)) {System.out.println("You win!!");     } 
            System.out.println ("you used" + i + "guesses ");
            System.out.println ("The secret word is" + word  );
                }
     
         else 
         {
             System.out.println("Guess the word in uppercase.");
             String guessedword = in.next();
             guess = false;
             if (guessedword.equals(word)) {System.out.println(win));}
             else System.out.println("Haha you lose");
             System.out.println ("you used" + i + "guesses ");
            System.out.println ("The secret word is" + word  );
     
     
            }
     
     
     
     
    }
    while ( i < 27 && guess = true);

    Default Re: Wordguess program wouldn't run

    Is there any error or exception thrown by the program? If yes, what? Elaborate your problem description.
