Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
 
Extra chips

A long work day yesterday ... and we ended up getting a takeaway from "Tricia's Plaice" - our favourite chippie in Melksham. It's in an obscure suburb (can a town with an 18000 population have suburbs??) and I had to wait while they cooked fresh cod; I guess that they don't want to have too much stock lying around cooked at 9pm on a Tuesday.

Portions are always good, and I really don't mind the wait - I could always have phoned in the order if I wasn't prepared for it. But I'm always slightly amused to see that when they keep you waiting (a) they apologise for the wait [good business practice there, Tricia], and (b) the size of the portions of chips increases in proportion to the time taken.

Cait:We had fish and chips last night too!

If you have a local fish shop that does really good fish and chips, count yourself very lucky! Our little village has two chippies, both serve Chinese and surprisingly enough, the chips and fish taste of spring rolls.

We drive to another village about fifteen minutes away for our fish and chips. A traditional little chippy, where you wait for your fresh fish too. Beats the heck out of spring roll flavoured variety though! ;)

David Corking:Graham, I am a newcomer to Melksham area, and Tricia's Plaice fast became our favourite chippy too. Portions are generous, and the whole family loves the taste of those gorgeous chips!
