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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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

We're in London and went to see "Whose life is it anyway" yesterday afternoon at the inappropriately named Comedy Theatre.

The play's about a very bright and "thinking" sculptor, who's left as a paraplegic after an accident. Although the doctors have done everything they physically can for her, she faces up to not being able to be an independent being any more and being institutionalised amongst professionals. Although we can see they care, the senior staff have to switch themselves off and put on something of a shell which provides utter frustration for Claire. She finds a small degree of solice in the refreshing attitude of the cleaners and trainee nurses but clearly she's not just going to be one to take her situation lying down. We see that develop during the latter half of the first act and come to a culmination at the end of the second ...

Not my usual light-and-frothy cup of tea, but I wouldn't have missed this one. Very thought provoking. And makes one realise just how .. trivial by comparison .. so many of life's little trials are. If you're in London while the play's still on, do look for an opportunity to go and see it.
