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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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))
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.

The Town Hall at Melksham, with autumn flowers on the roundabout

This is the road works season in Melksham, and Bank Street is close once again!

Well House Manor early this morning, with bright sunlight on the front of the building.

Here's an interbal picture - our bedroom 3.

And 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.
