NEW SERVER - 11.9.2020 ... Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work

Graham:That's a good link ... 68 donkies for $1 each. You would think that within 68 donkeys there would be something appropriate - and there are several possibilities there - but gee I wish I had a lot more time ... this one will have to wait for the weekend!

Graham:When you least expect it ... you come across what you're looking for. This picture will fit the bill:. Nice thing is that it's from a contacts site (with approval), and I gives me a chance to point you to that contact's web site at http://www.hobby-box.co.uk where you can buy decorated horse shoes on behalf of the the Donkey Sanctuary.

[Damn - the comment software strips some tags. Probably a good thing. I'll put up more links on a new post ;-) ]
