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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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))
0870 telephone numbers
You'll find comment elsewhere on this site about how expensive it is to telephone many numbers starting with 07 in the UK. This number sequence includes mobiles and "personal numbers", some of which will cost you up to 50p per minute. And most of us are aware that 09 numbers can be expensive.
Numbers that start with 0870 are know as non-geographic telephone numbers and they're ones you might want to be careful of too. It depends on who your phone company is, but I don't think that many of the good rates that you get to a normal geographic number extend to them. I've been given a link to a site that lists alternatives to 0870 numbers
and I pass it on in case it might be useful to you.
I note a Google ad on the bottom of the page which suggests "Get paid 2ppm on calls to 0870 telephone numbers."
. Does that mean that if you're left on hold when you call one of these numbers that you're paying the company that you're calling for that honour? (written 2005-02-03, updated 2006-06-05)
