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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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))
Root is root for a reason!
A busy day ... major update to the Chamber of Commerce Site
, and a heart-stopping moment when I realised that we had moved our server's clock forward by a year instead of by a few minutes. A few log files have some funny time stamps in them, and web stats will look odd for a while ... and there was a heart-stopping moment when the Horse's Mouth went blank as I hadn't posted in the period that's displayed. In the end, a site rebuild solved the issue. Lesson for us all - there is a well protected password on the root account or a VERY GOOD reason!
However - on a lighter note, I was delighted to get this search result:
Yes, Well House Manor
is top of its class - a great place to stay. And the place is made by the team that run it - front of house and behind the scenes. (written 2009-11-03)
