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.
Middle aged subsidise young and old

On one hand, a society should look after its young and old and give them preferential treatment - but on the other hand it's quite galling at times to feel in that expensive middle age when I am subsidising the extremes!

Why these thoughts today? Because, before we left the USA yesterday I spotted an offer in the International House of Pancakes that reminded me that I'll be on the slippery freebie slope very soon - had we visited this time next year, I would have been able to claim a free entr[83][c2]áe for Lisa, mid afternoon (or any other person I dragged in there, but it's so much fun with Lisa!)

Researching this while I get over my jet-lag today (decent technical article tomorrow ;-) ) and I've come up with this listing showing how things get more expensive up your 26th Birthday ... then start to get cheaper again in your 50s. This list is all UK data, with the exception of the iHop which triggered it.

Free train travel ... up to 5th birthday
Free school milk (if on support payments) ... up to 7 years
Half price train travel ... up to 16th birthday
Free Dental treatment ... up to 18th Birthday
Young Person's Railcard ... up to 26th birthday

Saga Holidays ... 50+ years
iHop's Senior Meal Offer ... 55+ years
Bus Pass ... 60+ years
Old Age Pension ... 65+ years
Free TV License ... 75+ years
Higher Winter Fuel payments ... 80+ years
Telegram from the Queen ... 100 years


Knowing how most of our delegates are far, far younger that I am, I look forward (with a considerable feeling of guilt, I must admit) to being subsidised by you all in a few years time.

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.
