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.
FileMaker Day to Unix Time conversion

Posting here out of self defence ... this is always one I forget and it doesn't seem to come up on the searches. Coded in PHP.

  # 735540 3/11/2014
  $timeoffset = 735540 - mktime(12,0,0,11,3,2014) / 3600 / 24;
  $daychanged = ($_REQUEST[whichday] - $timeoffset);
  $report = date("D jS M Y",$daychanged * 3600 * 24);

Very inefficient, but converts a day number from the FileMaker data I have into a Unix TimeStamp, which I have then formatted to report on Day. Month and Year (and day of week too) in my output.

My users far prefer "3rd November 2014" to "735540"!
