Incidentally, this is why people shouldn't rely on the apparently-random itemid to prevent people even knowing of the existence of a friends-only post. One reason people were against the twitter/facebook crossposting was because it leaked the existence of friends-only posts. Well unfortunately for them the client API explains how this is calculated, and the result is anyone who knows the spec can look at a pair of itemid values and work out how many posts apart they are. All hail information leakage!
Anyway, where was I. Oh yes: all right you lot, own up - who turned off the heating?
Apparently the weather has decided to change from autumn to winter without a clutch. It was actually quite pleasant when I went out walking on Sunday evening, but fast-forward to lunchtime today and it was bitterly cold.
This temperature graph on the excellent Isle of Wight weather site shows that it was a balmy 7°C on Sunday, but today the mercury barely managed 1°C.
And it's only getting worse - the BBC is currently forecasting highs of 3°C and lows of -3°C for the next few days here (well, for Portsmouth which is close enough to me) and snow of all things on next Tuesday. Snow!
For non-Brits: snow on the south coast tends to be a light dusting for a couple of days in late winter. As a result no-one here prepares for it, and so the serious amounts of slow last winter paralysed everywhere south of London for a week. The current long-term forecast is looking like a repeat for this winter.
