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.
Alternative URLs using % symbol encoding

Did you know that you can replace a character in a URL with the equivalent hex code - i.e. you can URL encode it? For example:
http://www.geocities.com/pem20165/wodph158%41shburnStation.html
and
http://www.geocities.com/pem20165/wodph158AshburnStation.html

both point to the SAME page, as %41 is the URL encoding for capital A!

You may wonder why on earth you might use a facility such as this!. Firstly, and regrettably, it's often used with bad intent to obfuscate URLs - remove key words that would be spam trapped. But my requirement was slightly different - our Wiki (which you can see through our share pages - for example this page I put up this morning) identifies a sequence of Capital-lower case - capital as being a link. Which I did not want to appear within the links quoted above, so I simply rewrote them using the alternative encoded notation.

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.
