"View source" gets acres and acres of confusing boilerplate, and indeed no content for the post other than the one line of text.
However, looking up 1797 is educational; it leads to "Gott erhalte Franz den Kaiser", and the interesting tidbit that the HMS Camperdown that was afloat in Kipling's time carried (unlike the Clampherdown) the Nordenfelt.
Amazing what one can learn from a blank blog post.

It was worth the wait, though. Interesting technology, from the water power to the wooden gears. Also interesting how phrases like "run of the mill" work into our language and so few people today know where the come from.
