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.
Where quality costs less

We've tried to buy locally where we can in our refit of Well House Manor - and that's meant first Melksham, then Wiltshire before looking further afield. Some excellent suppliers have come through, but there's some bare faced cheekiness in some suppliers.

"Where quality costs less" said the tag on a TV at Leekes - the Melksham Department store - yesterday, where we were getting a few odds and ends. I have, frankly, found the store's staff uncaring and prices very high in the past, and so we've not used them much on this project. But just out of grins, I had a look at the TV price as it was the model I've just bought five of. 799.99 was the price; hmm - the highest I've seen. We got ours for under 550.00 each, from a well know British High street chain.

Sorry, Mr Leekes, I'll buy locally where I can but NOT if it costs me 250.00 pounds per unit extra. And to claim that quality costs less on your label in such a case ... well, I'm afraid I trust you even less now that I did in the past.

40w bulbs ... and we wanted a number of bubble packs. A good job we noticed that there were a couple of 60w packs mixed in. We carefully sorted Mr Leekes stock for him

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
