I checked out the price of doing a course with a well known purveyor of operating systems and platform independent languages in NY/NY USA. According to my estimates and a small amount of research, for the cost of that course I could Fly from NY to London, stay in a modest Hotel chain, pay for my course, take a trip to Hampton Court Palace, a curry down Brick Lane and fly back to NY and still have spent slightly less money. Of course if you go with my course you know exactly who your trainer is before the class starts Marcus [ August 23, 2002: Message edited by: Marcus Green ]
