Just curious... what red button? Where's that red button you once saw on that US ship?

@pakjohn,

Let us know about the ship visits. It would be fun to visit a ship. The only ship I've been to is the MV Doulos for the book fair and the ship tour. It's cool to look at those hardware stuff (GPS, navigation gears). :)

I bought a portable ergonomic keyboard and I'm taking more frequent breaks now (stretch breaks) when working on the computer. So my wrists are better now. Thanks for asking. :)

There were two, one was in a place called the head and it had 'flush' written on it, the other was on a microwave in the galley and it said 'start'. Start what - I ain't starting nuttin'.
