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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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

The Mexican Buffet Breakfast ... I look and I learn from hotels that I say in and ask "would this work in Melksham". OK - the food was lovely this morning. The price compares very favourably with a Premier Inn breakfast, where the buffet does not include ... Nachos, Cactus, Beef Burritos, Beef Tongue, Spicy Sausage, Plantains and Refried beans (those things shown on my plate), nor the scrambled eggs and chicken pancakes that I didn't have room for this morning.

I'll probably eat at the buffet again tomorrow - I hope they still have the spicy trip broth that was there, but I noticed too late, and the Mexican Omelettes which I could be tempted by.

But some things DO transfer to Melksham. At Well House Manor we trialled (and were unimpressed) by the premade 'fresh' fruit salads that are available in the trade, and took a decision a while back to make ours truly fresh. We have a breakfast meeting every Friday and (it seems) no matter how much fruit salad we make (on site, ourselves), there is always the "Oliver factor" of "May we have more". And here in Mexico, they too have a fruit salad - truly fresh - prepared just a show while ahead and not shipped in, in bulk, in sealed containers.
