    Default Odd island and burning ship

    Two thing to look at today.
    Star shaped island, the remains of old fortifications at 54░38'33.71"N, 19░53'15.77"E
    Not particularly exciting but it looks nice.

    and very close by, what looks like a fairly large ship on fire at 54░38'11.48"N, 19░54'49.48"E

    Well, the ship is not burning. German sailors call that "Heizergru▀" (boilermans greeting). If big ship engines are started or not the best fuel-configuration is set up, they blow a lot of smoke (black-smoking).



    Btw, I guess it is a Russian Sovremenny destroyer.


    Software is like entropy. It is difficult to grasp, weighs nothing, and obeys the second law of thermodynamics; i.e., it always increases.
