Pete's Web History Goth Page (early 1998?) Please read the disclaimer

Welcome, to the realm of Esgeroth

Enter, dear traveller, the mystic realm of Esgeroth. I am Esgeroth of Ceallach, and this is my home. I welcome travelers and offer safe haven, but beware, my wrath is great when dishonor is brought to this place.

When I hear somebody sigh, "Life is hard," I am always tempted to ask, "compared to what?"


Toons and such




The Gallery




Duct Tape



Esgeroth of Ceallach (pronounce Killian) is the alter ego of mild-mannered computer geek Pete Rijks. Born under bizarre circumstances (all that is known is that large orange-juice consumption on the part of Pete were part of the process) Esgeroth represents the side of Pete that never left the mirkwood when Pete finished reading the Hobbit for the first time.

Anyway, if you're worried that I'm a dark, depressed individual, worry no more, I am quite happy. I don't dress in dark clothes or anything, but I was a goth this last halloween. This webpage is just dark-looking because it seemed like a cool thing to do to my web page...

You must view this worthless webpage!!

A brief summary of what is on this page (and why):

Writing... man is the animal which communicates. Speech, art, writing. I write, therefore I communicate, therefore I am.

Toons and such... I love Asterix. And when I get a chance I like to read marvel comics or watch anime. Think what you will.

UNIX... the magical tools of adventurers of this modern time. learn simple tips of the trade.

Football... though I've never really been much a fan of watching sports, I've developed an interest in football of late. A great game of strategy it is...

Aliens... I have a great fascination with the paranormal. 'nuff said.

Gallery... pictures of various sorts that I have collected off the web.

Links... no, I am not afraid of the outside world... and I give you this opportunity to go there.

Quotes... I love reading fun quotes of famous (and not-so-famous) people... I've collected quite a few here for you.

Politics... I have sort of a hobby interest in politics...

Pete... c'est moi, in case you wish to learn more...

Pictures... a silly page, filled with pictures of me, my family, my friends, and Boba Fett.
Well, this is a revised edition of this web page, so more is certain to come as I get the cobwebs dusted out of the corners.
