Hello, I'm Tom!
Welcome to my vanity site
I am currently a son of a scotsman, and studying CompSci at Cambridge.
I can program just about anything you want me to, from academic research to a shoe. If you want me to code something for you, just get in touch with the email address on the right.
Many of my past projects were lost in a server crash recently. Here are the things I can probably get back:
- My great website: ✓
- Some links to previous work
And things I can't:
- Some old games I made
- Lots of websites I made and was hosting here
- A few images
In the mean-time, I've put some external links to evidence or content where available.
There are a few hidden things around this website.
What is Fridgecow?
The worst inside joke ever
My friend came up with a story about a cow with a fridge for a stomach many years ago. I ran with the idea, making the image and using it as my online persona. I even made a t-shirt
Music and Drama
Oh and sometimes I do this too
...but I wouldn't consider myself very good. I self-learnt ukulele and piano, and can now read sheet music (very slowly) and play what I want. I sometimes write music too.
Click here to see a playlist of my piano playing. Or don't.
The Tom Benn Style Guide
The more you follow it, the less style you have
The styleguide covers ideal clothing, interior design, and setting out notebooks, among other things. Stay tuned!
2x washing cycle length should be owned, and not significantly more.
this current guide evolved from green jumper, white tee and black suit trousers.
t-shirt: block colours, preferably earthy. trousers: must carry
A5 paper, preferably some zip pockets. convertible trouser/shorts desirable.
should be dark/black. socks: all the same. jumpers/coats: green. many pockets.
Aim is to maximise available floor space.
large items should line the walls (desk, bed). Bed can act as chair for desk. Desk must face window.
Posters must not be above radiators, or in direction of open door.
