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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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))
Bird Watching on the Melksham Avon
Suddenly, we've move from a bleak, cold and bare winter to Spring - and today was lovely Spring day. A morning of catching up on the TransWilts meeting of yesterday, then a chance to get out in the afternoon. Here, on the bridge over Semington Brook near Waddon is a twitcher that we met; I certainly saw some bird life around, but then with a dog in tow (or to be more accurate, "in the lead") I expect all the more timid stuff was in the next county before we got close.
But certain of the birds weren't to be put off by the mere presence of people and a dog - here swans on the Avon - but this is the Bristol Avon, close by Melksham.
What a lovely walk - from Melksham via Broughton Gifford down to the Pack Horse Bridge, up to Waddon and then the Kennet and Avon Canal, to be followed as a green strip into Trowbridge. Perhaps we should give such walks a little more publicity.
