In Washington there is the Smithsonian Institution. Inside is a gunboat from the Revolutionary War, the Philadelphia, she was built in 3 weeks, and sat at the bottom of Lake Champaign for 150 years and now she is in the museum. She is 54 feet long and quite beautifully ugly.

Inside her are a set of accelerometers, running on Intel NUC's and the NUCs are named Flint, Swallow, Amazon, Beckfoot, Dudgeon (LOL I ran out of names in my mind when I was naming them) Scarab, SeaBear, Teasal, Viper(that was a hard choice) and Wizard.

I had to explain to the SI human bean where the names came from.

We will watch her with interest.
