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
 
Melksham Quiz

Q: In what year did Charles Maggs set up a Rope factory in Spa Road, Melksham?

That's one of the questions from a quiz... where all the answers were numbers... that I set up for the ladies of the Bowerhill Villager for their Christmas quiz last night. The theme wasn't "Christmas" but there was certainly a "Melksham" element to the quiz.

The idea of the quiz is that all the answers are numbers... so that you can score each question first, second, third, etc from whoever gets the nearest answer. And that can give you prizes out in order and have a winner for each question.

If you want to try the quiz...

There's a copy without answers here... and when you want to know what the answers are, you can take a look at the questionmaster's copy here.

Charles Maggs moved to Melksham and set up his rope factory in 1803, by the way, according to http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/community/getcom.php?id=158.
