Peter's Pages

Peter's Pages
This is the personal website of Peter Rootham-Smith (Peter is fine.) Welcome!

I drive a Skoda, and my favourite colour is blue. My interest include films and TV, books, computer games, Go, and software.

I'm currently watching The Master's Sun, currently reading Edgar Wallace, and currently playing Daedalic's ''Chaos on Deponia'' as well as Shadowrun Returns.

I'm married to Virginia who has made some cakes. We like eating out. Virginia likes yoghurt and rhubarb, I prefer peanut butter. We have a couple of lovely cats, Tabitha and Amelia. We belong at Girton Baptist Church.

There's a diary on this website of notable events, assorted links, and how to contact me.

For a list of what's in this website see Index.
