Feb 18, 1702: Dreamed this morning I was in a large workshop with tools, a forge, and gun parts scattered on a bench. I was examining a gun with a number of barrels welded together. I was trying to arrive at a method of firing the barrels in sequence. Juan was standing to one side and behind me. He pointed to an iron wheel with a handle and said something I did not catch because at this moment Clinch Todd came off his watch and awakened me, grumbling that we had ejaculated all over his blankets.
The wind has fallen and we are moving now at a few knots an hour.

LITMIX 2.2: (beta) Create your own cut-up text using this tool. Recently updated to work with windows, so it's much easier to select input files. It also has two different methods of mixing. Those who used the original Litmix 2.0 are familiar with the line-by-line scrambling of files method. This is reproduced from the original minus a bug I found that caused a line to get omitted. Version 2.2 adds a second option of quartering of a single file with a diagonal swap. Many thanks to Mike Whaley, chief geek alpha tester.
