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.
Rude old people

Yes, I *am* enjoying being on a cruise ship and attending Open Source lectures - you've see a few posts here on the subject in the last few days, so this is something slightly less techie.

Why is it that some cruisers have to push into queues? Why is it that some of them are so inhumanising to the ship's staff? I know I'm not alone in my frustration. Lisa took a lunch tray
yesterday and a little old lady came up to the obvious queue and pushed in, in front of me and between us. "I'll see you in a couple of minutes" I said loudly to Lisa "some people obviously don't realise there's a queue here or in a desperate rush ...." and I glared. The old lady stepped back out of the line. And another lady of similar size and age just behind me approached me and said "I'm so GLAD you did that. Thank you"

Dear everyone, please tell me if I'm ever needlessly rude, inconsiderate, or even if I have bad breath one day. I don't want to be like the examples I quote, but I fear it's easier to slip than I would like, and I *am* getting older.
