For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.

I don't know, but I suspect that if you run a gets followed by an  fblocked on the channel, you will get:

0 return from fblocked if all is OK
1 return if the channel is open but there's not enough data available
an error if the channel is closed.

You can catch the error to prevent your program crashing - the catch action being whatever you need to do when the channel has been remotely closed.
