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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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

4283Can a legitimate forum post become illegal a year later?
I am not one for re-writing history. I will go back and correct typos in a post, and I will add updates onto the end of a story (or even cut them into the text with a date of change / amendment note), but I dislike changing things invisibly, or removing material which it's no longer convenient to display. ...

The law which applies to how we use cookies and similar technologies for storing information on a user’s equipment such as their computer or mobile device changed on 26 May 2011.

3104Catering in Syracuse, the Saigon Cafe, stolen images and Christmas
It was - indeed - a lovely buffet that we laid on at our old training centre in 2005 during a Perl course. So we took a picture of it, and included it in our slide show. Other, too, loved the picture and "hotlinked" it from our site into their various Plurks, to the extent that we were getting up to ...

2592Re-using our pictures
With thousands of pictures on our web site, I often get asked for permission to reuse them - and I'm usually very happy to grant such permission.

2686Freedom of Information - consideration for web site designers
The Freedom of Information Act in the UK has proven very useful in some of the things I've been doing with regard to public transport services in Wiltshire - though more in an analysis after the even of what happened rather than in a more positive, forward looking way. But there's another side to the ...
2252Leaping dog, Leaping horse, copyright of old masters
A picture I took earlier - Gypsy leaping through high grass in the field that also includes the Devizes White Horse.

1747Who is watching you?
How would you feel if someone sat opposite you in a train, stared hard at your throughout your journey, watched what you were doing all the time yet without engaging you at all?

I've been cc'd into an argument on a forum (not our Opentalk) and I'm taking great care not to join in or read deeply into what looks like a feud between a couple of folks who, frankly, should agree to disagree. However, I did pick up: "Speaking for myself, I’ve never bothered Googling anyone ...
