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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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))
It's just not cricket
We love living in Melksham
and it's so easy to do net searches for resources in the town; perhaps we should be thankful that our forebearers loved it too and never left to set up an identically-named city elsewhere in the world. By contrast, we've found it very hard to search for bathroom suppliers in Bath.
We've also found it - err - somewhat interesting to find information about the open source piece of software called cricket - it's is a "high performance, extremely flexible system for monitoring trends in time-series data" which is great for watching over network traffic, web site trends and the like. Do a search for it, and what do you find - pages about sports and insects.
On a slightly more serious note - if anyone reading this has experience in installing, maintaining and configuring cricket (I know I have the odd regular reader who might), can they let me know. I'm looking to help someone out and it's a bit too much of a niche even for me. Thanks! (written 2004-10-06, updated 2006-06-05)
