API exploration

It's always fun to use an API you've used before in a new way.

Got the opportunity to do that today to dig out some information. So interesting to actually look and see what information is actually available, even though we don't usually make use of even a tenth of it.

Still the data was all there, and I spend a merry afternoon making several thousand requests to get the data I needed. What I really needed was a batch request method!

Got there in the end though, and that's what counts.
