For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
Taking a boat down Caen Hill Locks

We had the opportunity today to help take a boat down the Caen Hill flight of locks on the Kennet and Avon canal, between us and Devizes. And to catch up too with our old friends Aouali and Roddy and their family.

Some pictures of the boat and the surrounds. Enjoy, click on any image to see it larger. The locks were lighter to work that I expected - I don't know why I thought they might be heavy just because there were so many, and there were Gongooxzlers all the way down. How great for the businesses around; tea room doing a roaring trade, and plenty of people out. Yet we were the only boat moving. There's an irony here - you don't need many boats moving on a naviagable canal to make it a big success for its area!.





































Thank you, Roddy, Aouali, and Narrow Boat Limoni
