Hello, my name is Bob Howlett. I am an electronic engineer and entrepreneur performing a consulting role in electronics and IT design, implementation and maintenance for SME’s, as well as providing integrated marketing solutions for small and micro businesses.  Would you like me to help with your marketing or engineering problem? Use the links above to find out how I can help your business. Over the years I have been lucky enough to work with many wonderful people on some great projects ranging from providing video coverage of the London’s Notting Hill Carnival in the 1980’s through maintenance of ITV & Channel 4’s TV transmitters at Crystal Palace, South London in the 1990’s to providing IT network & infrastructure solutions at various locations in both the US and mainland Europe in the 2000’s. In my spare time I have a number of interests which include making my own wine, cooking and entertaining – see Bob’s Kitchen” for some of my favourite recipes as well as other useful bits! I am also interested in monitoring & recording the local weather conditions, take a look at “Bob’s Weather” to see the current and historical conditions here at my home in Surrey. Another of my interests is music, specifically playing keyboards and organ. I have another website called HauptwerkHardware.com where I sell a variety of MIDI products which I have developed for Virtual Organ enthusiasts. So far as actually playing my keyboards goes; I can only refer you to a quote by Kenny Baker who once said of his trumpet playing “I’ve been trying to do this now for the last 55 years and I think I’ve just about got the hang of it.” In my case it’s been about 40 years and I still haven’t got the hang of it!   O well, maybe one day! Just for fun I have included a couple of other links; this one is a Javascript representation of an Antique Longcase Clock which belongs to my good friend Jim Goode. It was built in around 1850 by William Hayward of Tetbury and I have modelled it as accurately as possible from pictures which I took of the original clock parts. Finally there is a link to some pages about the Insane 5.1 Valve (vacuum tube) Amplifier that I designed and built a few years ago. So; take a look round and I hope you enjoy my website. If you would like to contact me use the link above and thanks for visiting.
