Feces withe A Face: A Virtual Poem for #clmooc #poetryport

Shit.
A promised made
to keep the poems
more physical
to find Pinksy’s history in

Meaning in the mundane
now tasked to describe virtually
I wonder
where is the
the line?
Asked since 1959
Do we taste and feel
in our online spaces?
The faces

Then I remember poop is virtual too!
What does it mean for poetry
When our feces has faces?

Understanding Database Sharding | DigitalOcean

ntroductionAny application or website that sees significant growth will eventually need to scale in order to accommodate increases in traffic. For data-driven applications and websites, it’s critical that scaling is done in a way that ensures the security and integrity of their data. It can be difficult to predict how popular a website or application will become or how long it will maintain that popularity, which is why some organizations choose a database architecture that allows them to scale their databases dynamically.In this conceptual article, we will discuss one such database architecture: sharded databases. Sharding has been receiving lots of attention in recent years, but many don’t have a clear understanding of what it is or the scenarios in which it might make sense to shard a database. We will go over what sharding is, some of its main benefits and drawbacks, and also a few common sharding methods.

This is a lovingly built collection of thoughts, sayings, and interests built by me… the Meanderthal!

I’ve worked pretty hard to try to find the best people and sites for me to follow and I share them here, ” Because it feels wrong not to share them”.

These are writers, bloggers, and Podcasters who I don’t always agree with but know what they are talking about and share some common beliefs with me.

I bring them to you. I hope you’ll read and even follow them… even if that means you won’t have time to follow me anymore. That’s what friends do for each other.

Click through the snippets to the referenced article… follow that person if they strike a chord with you. Join that site. Get involved with the Indieweb if you want. Go play with your trains. Take a hike. read about trucks, and oil wells, or Space. Armchair travel the world. Bicycle your town.

I’ve tried my best to find cool stuff for you to read. If all else fails read a book.

Or go on a ghost hunt!

It’s probably here or will be soon.

 

How I Manage My Anxiety While Traveling

This post appeared first at Outside Magazine: Travel

As a neurotic 27-year-old New Yorker with a cocktail of mental-health issues—anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and hypochondriasis—travel seemed impossible for most of my life. I grew up desperately wanting to see the world, but any time I’d get close to planning a trip, I’d chicken out before booking the flight. I soon grew tired of letting my anxiety confine me to an increasingly small comfort zone, and knew I had to make a drastic change. So at 23, I quit my job and took a two-month trip to Southeast Asia…
