Welcome to Andrew Benham's Web Site
This site is updated fairly regularly, but times on the web have moved
on, so I don't see the need for the once ever-present "under construction"
Who am I ?
I'm a software engineer living on the northern edge of London. Most
recently I worked for Demon Internet/THUS in Finchley, but a realignment
of the business in early 2010 removed my role.
My initials are ADSB, hence the domain name. There are several Andrew
Benhams on the Internet, so I didn't want to use my name for the domain.
Who am I not ?
I am not the UK branch of the Abu Dhabi Ship Building Company, despite
the many e-mails I get :-) (I suspect they mean adsb.co.ae).
There is a small fishing lake locally, but
it would seem slightly impractical to float a super-tanker on it...
Am I the Andrew Benham you know ?
Well, that depends.
I've been associated with the following establishments:
- Eversley Junior School, Southgate
- Haberdashers' Aske's School, Elstree
- Southampton University
- Radiomobile, Hemel Hempstead and Neasden
- Marconi Instruments, St. Albans
- STC, New Southgate
- STL/BNR Europe/Nortel Networks, Harlow
- Demon Internet/THUS, Finchley
Am I one of the (insert place name here) Benhams ?
I've been doing a little research on my branch and twigs of
the Benham family tree. I'd be pleased to hear from anyone I'm related to.
We seem to be based in Battersea in the 1830-1860 period, near East Grinstead
in the 1870s, and Islington in 1890-1920.
In particular, I'm interested if there's any connection between our being in
Battersea and "Benham Street" shown in that area in
Charles Booth's Poverty Maps of 1898/9
(the site now occupied approximately by
Benham Close, SW11).
The BBC Microcomputers were very popular in their time. Some people even
believe that time is not over yet... If you're in that number, you might
find my pages useful - for example, the BBC Master's real time
clock only understands the 20th century - unless you fix it!
One of my areas of interest is date and time issues (timezones, calendars,
week numbering, etc.).
Config files etc for DVB-T applications for the main London transmitter.
Not a blog but a collection of thoughts,
Various bits and pieces (or bits and bytes).
