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 Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own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

4141My pictures of Melksham Carnival, 13th July 2013
Pictures of Melksham Carnival, taken from the corner of Spa Road / Coronation Road / Warwick Crescent.

It's really good to have the American Circus visit Melksham. Dad and I went to see the show this afternoon.     The team running the show must have been 30 to 40 strong, the audience many hundreds. And it's really good to see atmosphere and pazazz, not danger and animals! Last day (this ...

3191Date of the Census (which month and day?)
I gave a flippant answer to a question Lisa asked me earlier - "when did the 1891 census take place" and I answered 1891. ;-). Of course, she was looking for the date within the year. That wasn't as easy to find as you might expect - so here's a full list: 1801 - 10th March 1811 - 27th May 1821 ...

17703 hours from Milton Keynes
I finished training at the end of Friday in Milton Keynes ... with a 2 to 3 hour drive home through the traffic travelling to start the Bank Holiday. Why rush it?

Yesterday was American's Thanksgiving Day, and having a wife who was born American in North Carolina and lived for many years before I met her in Florida, it's one of the special days / times on a par with Christmas and Easter that we celebrate a little. We sat our our dining table with friends and ...

1209Where did the Bank Holiday go?
Where did the Bank Holiday go? You'll have seen my comments about the model railway exhibition that was so good that I visited on 2 days; it must be 25 years since I was involved with any modelling and it was wonderful to see the sort of thing that's available these days and being done. A pleasure ...
It's only Tuesday, and yet Saturday seems an age away. We were in the town that claims to be the home of the largest illuminated carnival in the world (or I think that's what they said) and there were statues of Guy Fawkes inside and out.
