Some landlubbing swab was a trying to convince me that's I should be automating all me's gunnery. Some scurvy dog called Babbage has been playin in me hold, squandering me treasure on cogs and wheel fer decades. We gets lower and lower in the water and still finds we has to point the guns by hand. Now the varmint is tryin a sell me a "software maintenance plan", and claims to have invented someat called a "Defence Contract". Plank time methinks.
