In other news, I came home this afternoon to a rather warm flat, with an odd burnt metal smell in the air. My first thought was that my PC had experienced a rather drastic meltdown. Then I realised that I had left the oven on all night and all day. It had been on for about eighteen hours. It was on while I slept. It was on when I got up. I finally noticed that it was on when I got home from work.
