For 2023 (and 2024 ...) - 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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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))

[imgl=lacock]Lacock - Village Centre[/imgl]Lacock is a village where time stands still. The medieval houses beside the road, with minimal street lighting when it's dark, are close by the church and ancient abbey that was closed by Henry VIII as a part of his reforms. Later, Lacock Abbey became famous as the home of Fox Talbot, and was the location at which he took his first reversal process photographic image and set going a process that predominated photography until the coming of the digital camera. Following this theme, Lacock is often used for filming these days - see Lacockfilm page

[imgr=laco_08_1]Lacock Church[/imgr] The Church at Loacock has featured in many films, and has been the setting for some high profile weddings too.

[imgl=laco_08_2]Traditional Tea at Lacock[/imgl] Lacock is very much a tourist mecca - and places like the Hunting Lodge offer traditional sandwich lunches, or full high (cream) teas - in the garden when weather allows, and inside on inclement days.

[imgr=laco_08_3]Lacock[/imgr] Most of the buildings in the village are owned by the National Trust, who have a vigorous policy of maintaining the village's old time nature. The signs, the tiles - even the lamps are, you'll feel, exactly as they might have been 100 years ago.

Lacock is midway between Melksham and Chippenham (about 4 miles from each) - it's the most southerly Cotswolds village such as Biddestone and Castlecombe and it's to the east of Corsham and to the west of Calne and Bowood
