Welcome to the new version of Pete's Place!

After some fiddling, I have finally taken the leap and ported across to my new Joomla-based site.  There are still a few old pages that I will need to transfer across -- and I hope to do some mapping of the old URLs to the new Joomla urls, so hopefully no old bookmarks will break, but please be patient as we go through this transition!

I believe that, ultimately, this new site will be worth the wait, and that I will be more likely to make updates on a regular basis.  Until I have everything working properly, however, you might be interested in some of the old links (such as they are) that will still work for a while!  (As I replace these with the new pages, I'll remove the old links from this page!)

If you run into any problems, please let me know via the Contact Pete page (under the "Pete's Place" menu.)

Enjoy your visit!

2014 Movie List

Since typing out the 2013 "Movies" list was more than a little tedious, I've written a short Perl script to do the work for me. Never underestimate the power of a short Perl script! Here, then, is the list of everything I watched in 2014. Hmm. I sure racked up the couch-time!


2014 Reading List

2014 was also a slow year for me. I think I'd almost go so far as to say that 2014 was my Annus Horribilis; certainly I didn't seem to be particularly productive with anything. My heart just wasn't in it. Neither were my kidneys.


2013 Reading List

2013 was a slow year for me, book-wise. Apparently. I only read 26 books, and there were a couple of large gaps during which I was too focused on other projects to do much reading. (And since 2014 was, uh, not a good year—for many reasons—I never finished typing this up until April 2015!)


2013 Movie List

Sometime in August 2013, I decided to add a "Date Watched" column to my movie database, thus allowing me to at least list what I have watched each year, by year.  Obviously this list only goes back as far as August... :-)

Now that I've got my script working (produced for the 2014 list) I've regenerated this list too!


Barbara Wright

Barbara Wright (Jacqueline Hill) was Susan Foreman's history teacher at the Coal Hill School; along with Ian Chesterton she followed Susan back to the junkyard in which she was living, and encountered the Doctor.  When, concerned for their student, they forced themselves into the TARDIS, they were essentially abducted by the Doctor.
