Fat Catherine: the Medieval cannon that microblogs

Some friends of mine founded the Fat Catherine Sisterhood, an all-female Medieval cannon association. On Monday I got to go to the artillery range with them. Here are some pictures:

Boom!

Cleaning the barrel

You can also see a shot on YouTube.

While being a light 15th Century field cannon, the Fat Catherine is with the modern times: it microblogs actively on the Qaiku microblogging service. You can follow her there to hear when shots are being fired, or when the cannon is going on tours.
