2021.09.27 03:23 ArthurDrakoni Against the Tide of Years by S.M. Stirling is an excellent follow up to Island in the Sea of Time. This is my review.
I’m back with a review of Against the Tide of Years; the second book of the Island in the Sea of Time series by S.M. Stirling.
A few years have passed since the events of the first book. The temporally displaced people of Nantucket are adjusting well to their new lives in the Bronze Age. Trade is flourishing and new alliances are being forged. However, a storm is brewing on the horizon. William Walker, though temporarily defeat and set back, has licked his wounds and moved on to Greece. Here, Walker and his cronies have made a second, and far more successful, attempt at empire building. The people of Nantucket know that they're going to have to defeat Walker once and for all if they want their new world to be safe. Nantucket is going to make new allies, and find new adventures, in a world set against the tide of years.
Everyone really seemed to enjoy my review of Island in the Sea of Time. S.M. Stirling himself even commented how much he enjoyed it on my post on the SM Stirling Fan Group on Facebook.
As you might recall, I absolutely loved Island in the Sea of Time, the first book in the series. Against the Tide of Years not only managed to keep up the momentum, but might be even better than Island in the Sea of Time. The first notable difference is that, this time around the major civilizations of the Bronze Age Mediterranean and Near East play major roles in the plot. Walker's segments are set in Mycenaean Greece, while Nantucket has courted the Babylonian and Hittite Empires as allies against Walker. More information has survived about these civilizations compared to Bronze Age England, Tartessos, and the Olmecs. Though, that having been said, they still have a lot of blanks spaces, and details we aren't certain about. So, Stirling has more information to work with, but still had plenty of wiggle room with how he depicted these Bronze Age civilizations.
As I've said before, with so many competing theories about life in the Bronze Age, there is no way Stirling could be faithful to them all. Having said that, it is still very impressive how closely he follows many of these theories, and the attention to detail with his depiction of the Bronze Age cultures and civilizations.
I’d been hoping for a bit of Egypt in this book, but the scenes in the Babylonian Empire were surprisingly engaging. In fact, I went on a bit of a Babylonian, and Mesopotamia in general, kick after I finished this book. Chalk it up to Stirling’s talent as a writer.
I also used to think that the Mycenaeans were just the pre-show warm up to the main act that is Classical Greece. However, Stirling showed me that there was plenty of fun to be had during the Mycenaean era. I also went on a bit of a Mycenaean, and Bronze Age in general, kick after I finished this book. It helps that Stirling goes with the theory that the characters of The Iliad were based on real people. So, we get a dash of Greek Mythology to go with the time travel and historical fun.
I was also nice to see returning characters and meet new ones. Both historical and fictional.
Have you read Against the Tide of Years? If so, what did you think?

2021.09.27 03:23 EcstaticCranberry21 Mouse/rat infestation. Please help me.
We had a huge rat when we first moved in here. Then a couple baby rats/mice (I honestly don't know). Now we have them everywhere. Snap traps will be set off with nothing in them, or the food taken and not set off. I've even tried the snap traps with the sensitive setting on it. Droppings all over the house, literally. They're eating plants (cactus, roses) and anything else they can find. I'm about to lose my mind. Any suggestions for what we can do? Note, we have small kids and a dog also.

2021.09.27 03:23 alienalgen94 So I did it backwards and got a junior dev job and am finishing out my bachelors in CS (average school), when I graduate in 2023 I'm applying to big tech jobs after leeting a lot of DS&A, I should have 2 years of full stack dev experience, how can I become more competitive for a big tech SDE role?
My current role is a junior angulanode/sql server and azure dev ops role.
I am doing full stack and have to touch everything as we are a growing medical software company.
They really need developers and I'm happy to help at lower junior pay while I get my degree.
The senior devs are stressed, few in number, overworked and underpaid. No clue why as its a bloated business and their product is literally software yet no one but the devs have a clue what code is.
So I'm obviously looking for a big structured company that has mentorship but more so that ability to have good work life balance, great pay, great stock options and great bonuses.
I know its very competitive to get a big tech role, so how can I become the most competitive candidate if my school is average, and my current company is average?

2021.09.27 03:23 angelsandairwaves93 As a fellow Central Asian, I love watching Valentina Shevchenko continue to succeed.
I don’t have any ties to Kyrgyzstan, but I have ancestral lineage in Central Asia.
The first time I saw Valentina bring the Kyrgyzstan flag to the octagon, I had to google what that flag was, because I didn’t know. In a lot of ways, she’s put such a positive spotlight on Kyrgyzstan.
I might not be from there, but I still feel a sense of pride when she continues to kick ass.

2021.09.27 03:23 Zealousideal-Job-883 PPD.
Hello everyone. I just had my baby the 16th. I think I’m starting to spiral into PPD like I did with my first daughter. My first daughter is 3 and was born with a cleft lip she’s all fine now however, my partner and I decided to have another baby. My partner has a gene that cause cleft lip and palates in babies it’s called the vanderwoude syndrome. My second baby was born with a cleft lip and a palate and it’s Soo hard feeding her, it’s hard seeing her eat. Although they fix it at 10 months we have a long way to go, she’s barely gaining weight & I just can’t take it. I cry every day and I feel like a sucker for being so sappy about it. Anyone in need of a friend HMU pls, I’ll be here for you too. ☹️

2021.09.27 03:23 Sarah3117 Watching S1E17 when Danny goes on his first date… I am bawling. Fuller House failed Danny.
With the decades of comfort I have with this show, there’s parts I’ll still yet laugh hysterically or cry my eyes out. It hit me hearing Danny with the girls in his room. Danny: “One might we (him and Pam) had a long talk. And if one of us were ever single again, we’d make sure you’re taken care of again”. DJ: “So mom would be happy you’re going on a date?”. I. Bawled. Freaking fuller house FAILED Danny making him divorced. But by all means they gave the gibblers a happy ending.
