Blockade Runner Bendigo

The wreck of the Civil War blockade runner Bendigo is now partially above water at low tide. So we went out to see it. 
It seems that it's commonly misidentified as the USS Iron Age. But the Iron Age is a screw-propelled (propeller) steam engine and this wreck is definitely a paddlewheel steamer. Which is consistent with the Bendigo. The Iron Age is out there somewhere though. It ran aground trying to salvage the Bendigo. 
You can read the reports from Captain Edward E. Stone and the other navy ships involved in the "Annual Report of the Secretary of the Navy with an Appendix Containing Reports from Officers December, 1864" in Google books:

Also, I got stung by a jellyfish.

Windows 10 = Double the productivity!

Is this a new Windows 10 superfeature? I just noticed that while drawing on my computer (Thinkpad Yoga), I can also push buttons with my right hand (The left hand being the hand that is drawing things). What? For shizzle! Actually, at fist I was confused as to why the palm rejection stopped working but then I noticed It was only not rejecting touches on the left side of the cursor. So I found the "use left hand" pen setting and viola! I can now draw and switch tools at the same time. I know, awesome, right? I've been wanting to be able to do that for years. Well.. I've been wanting to use a pen and a mouse at the same time for years. Now I don't have a mouse anymore so this is even better. If someone tells me it's not a Windows 10 thing and I could've been doing it the whole time I might feel some feelings. I don't know what kind of feelings, but there sure would be some.

Maddening Ad-Libs

Do you have some random nouns and verbs bouncing around inside your head? Do you need to find them a good home? Try putting them over here. I made this thing as an experiment so if you want to help me out, try it and let me know if it works or not.

*UPDATE: I'm going through a little host restructuring. Try this link to get there for now. Thanks!*
