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.
Planters in the Spring

Christine and Jane (not to forget Ed) have done us proud in transforming a building site into a hotel garden. It's been a big task with major areas to be re-turfed, the debris of ages cleared, new beds installed, and the rawness of the site transformed into the pleasant place that you'll want to stay when you're in Melksham.


Ongoing garden works by Nigel, keeping the place in trim especially in the current grass-growing season - and we have a LOT of grass.

The planters to the left and right of the front door struck me as beautiful in the halflight of dawn this morning, and I couldn't resist adding in the pictures. Quite an interesting technical challenge - to use natural light, flash, or a mixture? Which of the hundreds of settings on the digital camera to use? Both of my experiments look effective in their own way - but then I've got some of the beauties of spring to work with right on my doorstep, so it really wasn't that hard even for an amateur photographer like myself.


Technical note The UPPER picture was taken with flash, just after dawn when there was also low natural light available to provide the skylight to the read and, in effect, the silhouettes of the trees. The LOWER picture was taken earlier. Flash was NOT used, but the camera was set to make best use of available light, and the light from our entrance porch was illuminating the flowers.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
