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
 
What a shock

You have probably seen the last pictures on this site ... taken with the digital camera I have been using for a couple of years. It was water resistant, contents-of-pocket resistant, and said to be shock resistant - but it turned out not be shock resistant enough for me - a clumsy oaf who managed to shut it into my Lisa's car door in Chippenham on Saturday evening. It now has a screen where I can see the left of the picture I'm taking but not the right, and where I have to guess at some of the menus. That I managed to do this half acceptably is shown by the pictures of Bathampton and Claverton Pump that have appeared here in the last few days.

"Get it fixed" is my first thought. Where other people have a mobile phone that becomes a very part of them, so was that camera to me. I have to watch how strongly I word the bond, as Lisa could end up thinking I have fonder words for the camera thaN I do for her (Lisa - if you're reading this - it is said tongue in cheek!). But the cost of fixing it would have been almost as much as (or perhaps more than) the new camera cost, and perhaps technology had moved on. Deep breath, I hadn't intended to get a new camera ... but it's new camera time!

So I'm back to learning a new camera now ... and you'll have to forgive me while I practise and post up a few trial and test photos ... here are some taken in the early days of this week.

Perl Programming CourseAnd here's my first picture with the new camera of delegates on a course.


I must admit that the new camera is a (10 Mpixel) development from the old one, so that although there are some things I need to get used to / learn into, it's much the same and I should be up and running again quite quickly.
