For 2023 - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.
Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!
I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
Contrast - the storm and the calm.
There's a howling gale blowing outside our training room as I sit here this morning writing "The Horse's Mouth". Nothing new in that - indeed it seems that it's been pretty windy for a number of days now. Apart from the noise - the sound of raindrops lashing the windows in some of the stronger gusts - the inside of the room is remarkably unaffected; a still atmosphere, a steady light, and a U shaped long table with seven laptops plus a spare set out ready for a quiet course that starts today, followed by a full course on Wednesday to Friday.
A new noise - a crunching on the gravel drive, followed by a flapping of the letterbox, and I know the newspaper's arrived. Within the next few minutes, I expect further sound effects as our post arrives. The very fact that I hear (and comment) on these gentle sounds of morning shows you how - in general - it's very quiet here. Even the carpenter working on the extension which we need to allow us to claim back some "personal space" from the business can't be heard from here and the neighbours around here as so quiet that they might as well not be there.
