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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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))
Cash and Cheque policy - UK Hotel
With the demise of the cheque guarantee card in the UK, we've updated our cash payment policy for Well House Manor
"If you do not wish to guarantee a room with a credit or debit card, and are not booked as part of a training course / Purchase Order, you are welcome to send us a cheque ahead of time to cover the first night's stay as a deposit. We will hold a room for up to 7 days to give your cheque time to reach us and clear. We can also accept a cheque for full payment of the rest of your stay, but that needs to be with us at least three working days ahead now that the cheque guarantee system has been discontinued by the British Banks.
"You may also pay (deposit of one night's stay and / or the rest of your stay) in cash, in advance. We recommend, however, that you do NOT post us cash.
"With cash and / or cheque payment, we have to ask for proof of identity on checkin - passport, driving license, recent utility bill or similar.
Some of this may look a bit harsh. I take sad comfort for knowing that I see similar (or even stronger) terms displayed at hotels when I stay away. (written 2011-07-16, updated 2012-11-04)
