List of battleships of France - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Foudroyante"
I just came across this set of names of French Ironclad battleships.
It is rather poetic.
If and when I have a thought, and have ten minutes in the office, I might write mildly diverting thoughts here: about new media in real life, about the web, about the future. But mostly, I think, I'll just wiffle about nothing.
