Books on The Picts
Thanks for all the boosts re looking for good books on The Picts.
For those interested, here are the ones either recommended to me or which I've since come across and look good. I've just listed 3 more recent books, since it will have the latest research and theories.
1. The Picts: a history, by Tim Clarkson. This was recommended to me and I'm halfway through it and it's pretty good. It has a really interesting alternative theory on the Dal Riadian Scots (that I want to see what other historians say!). Mostly easy to read. Go for 2012 or 2016 editions, as includes updates that come out after the 2008 edition.
2. The King in the North: The Pictish Realms of Fortriu and Ce, by Gordon Noble & Nicholas Evans (2019) https://www.hive.co.uk/Product/Gordon-Noble/The-King-in-the-North--The-Pictish-Realms-of-Fortriu-and-Ce/23592381 which is a series of essays of the most recent research, including archaeological. Not recommended, just one I found that interested me.
3. The Picts Re-Imagined by Julianna Grigg (2018). Only a short book (120 pages), but apparently brings together recent research https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1641890916/? (not available on Hive except as an eBook). Also one that just interested me.

i think fedi is legitimately better than other social media because the more you use it, the more it encourages you to not need it anymore. commercial sites literally do everything they can to get you to spend as much of your time on them as you can by making you as miserable as possible. fedi on the other hand draws you in by making you believe in the world outside. if you jump in whole-heartedly enough it will spit you out as someone else, if not somewhere else
fin pol i guess, marvelling at ppl
valid things to complain about:
-i can't afford to pay this much tax
-our tax money goes to military funding and industry bailouts and doesn't actually help support us as a nation
-paying taxes is complex and an accessibility issue for many
not super valid to complain about really:
-can't believe i'm forced to contribute to the society i live in ://

Sometimes when I'm helping a non-techie with computer issues, and the best advice I can give them is "did you try turning it off and back on again," I wonder if they think I'm not really trying to help them, or that I'm withholding some secret computer science knowledge from them. But no – this is the big insight! When you're a programmer, you realize that programmers don't really know what they're doing. All software is terrible. And our collective misfortune, as users, is to do battle with it
