So far…

And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself, “Well… how did I get here?”

This is actually the second iteration of dumnonia.us.

dumnonia.us v.1.00 kind of bit the dust. It was a WordPress blog, as is this, but tbh, I hadn’t really looked at it for over a year. But recently I thought I’d resurrect it, so I played about with page templates and stuff like that. The worst aspect of the previous version is that it required a lot of image editing to got all the pictures to fit and align. But I couldn’t get it to work.

This version’s easier in that respect, but I messed up when transferring the SQL database to the new template… In fact, instead of backing it up, I deleted it…

So…

This is my new blog, with a more friendly image placement menu.

Welcome to dumnonia.us v.2.00. It will still be focussed on the mythical railway line across the river valleys, villages, farms and the wild moors on the Devon and Cornwall borders. Still fixed in a time-warp vaguely lodged between the 1950s and the early 1980s, and with a slightly alternative history which fits my universe, if not anyone else’s. But it’s my universe, okay? And you will like it…

There will be diversions. Maybe my opinion of the day, or pontifications on music, hifi, bicycles even. Who knows?

And honestly, I know this is all for my benefit rather than yours, but like I said, “It’s my universe“.

dumnonia.us v.2.00

So. Dumnonia is back. Apart from a year’s absence, there was the small issue of screwing up my SQL database. But no matter. I’m back…

This time, it’s all about me…

…And my model railway, music, hifi, bicycles and life in general…
