Transformation Complete

. . . so what’s new?

The new look for the Chariot is finished.

Almost everything is the same as it was on the older Chariot, but there are a few extras –

  • Everything works properly.
  • It’s easier to read.
  • It’s now smart mobile friendly.
  • There are no adverts!
  • You can do more with pictures in posts.   For example Featured Image and Subtitle, both used above, and clever handling of larger pictures (not illustrated).
  • You can also do some nifty formatting with text in posts.   I’ll post some examples later.

Post as many critical comments as you like; you may well detect something that I have missed.   Other than that – enjoy!

Anyhow, 2018  seems to have managed to get here. As, in due course, have I.

So, a Good New Year to all Charioteers, past or present.

Happy memories and lang may all your lums reek!

I am not a romantic.

I am not a romantic. In fact, in some ways I might be extreme enough as to be an iconoclast. This isn’t in the sense of being a nihilist — far from it. I’m a moderate monarchist, Low Church Anglican with high church attendance and hobbies that are so sedate that even the most curmudgeonly of Dorset grandmothers approve.
