We had a major shock when we arrived at the reservoir this morning. The entire reservoir was frozen. We’ve never seen anything like that before – small ice patches, and certains arms of the reservoir, sure, buy not the whole damn thing!

Considering that yesterday, there was no ice at all (thanks to the wind); and that the ice was pretty thick (about 1cm), it must have got pretty cold last night!

Syncing Facebook to Google Calendar to the iPhone

How almost awesome is this!

Syncing Facebook to Google Calendar to the iPhone.

It describes how to take your Facebook Events, and get them into Google Calendar, then you can get them synchronised to you mobile device using Google Sync (I’ve done that last bit already.) This will save a bit of a headache.

I was prompted to look for this by the recent upgrade to the iPhone Facebook App, which now provides contact synchronisation with your Contacts on the phone. The problem I found wihth this though is that it’s very non-descriptive as to what it actually synchronises.

According to several newsgroup posts, it only synchronises the profile photo to the contact, and even then it overwrites the ones that you choose. So I went looking for a better solution, and found this diversion.
