Monday Mutant 76: Battleships (minesweeper)

Ten ships (as indicated below the grid: one four-cell ship, two three-cell ships, three two-cell ships, and four one-cell ships) are hidden in the grid. The ships may be rotated from the orientations shown, but may not overlap or occupy cells which share a corner or an edge. A number in a cell indicates how many of the cells sharing a corner or an edge with that cell are occupied by ships. Cells with numbers cannot contain ships. Find the ships.
Combining Minesweeper and Battleships is probably one of the most ironic things that's ever happened in the realm of puzzles, since in Minesweeper, you want to avoid hitting mines, but in Battleships, you want to hit the ships.
