Or we were poor and we did not know we were.

Or we were not poor and we thought we were.

Or we knew we were not poor.

Or just enough we did not deny being poor.

Or others told us we were poor and we believed we were.

Or this is what we told ourselves when we disliked others.

Or it was good to be poor among those who were not poor.

Or we had friends who were poor but did not know they were.

Or the poor were always among us.

Or we wanted nothing to do with the poor even if we were poor.

Or someone somewhere in our family had been poor.

Or it was a story we learned from our older brother who told us we were poor.

Or we told ourselves “at least we’re not poor.”

Or we made up things to make our lives a little less poor.

Always blood and those who give of it so freely.

The hemophiliac, the martyr.

The meatpacking plant at the end of the street.

Piles of ice dumped out back, soaked with the blood of deer, their hind legs broken, stabbed through, hung to drain.

And the children, always the children.

Gathering the ice into small handfuls, licking it as one would a snow cone.

12. Bake Pumpkin Pie

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

During this books development process, when a long list of writers and editors were commenting on the outline, nothing provoked such strong emotions and passionate debate as the pumpkin pie. Pretty much everyone agreed it had to be on the menu, but how to go about getting it on the table was a matter of intense disagreement.

On one end of the spectrum, some felt that for the inexperienced cook, baking a pieand especially a pie crust from scratchis far too scary to contemplate, and all the more so with everything else that has to be prepared. On the other end of the spectrum, experienced pie makers shared their easy-as-pie pie crust recipes and insisted that its not scary at all, while emphasizing that a fresh pie is crucial to a proper Thanksgiving dinner. In between were many other opinions.

Ive made plenty of pies and the process doesnt seem scary to me, but I made some lousy (though still edible) pie crusts before I got the knack of it. So Im going to give you two equally valid paths to a good pumpkin pie and let you choose the one you feel most comfortable with: you can either make the crust yourself (it really is easy!) or buy a ready-made (but unbaked) crust at the store. Either way, the rest of the instructions remain the same: youll make the filling, pour it into the crust, and bake. And frankly, other than the telltale disposable pie plate, your guests probably wont know the difference.

5. openMosix

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

openMosix is software that extends the Linux kernel so that processes can migrate transparently among the different machines within a cluster in order to more evenly distribute the workload. This chapter gives the basics of setting up and using an openMosix cluster. There is a lot more to openMosix than described here, but this should be enough to get you started and keep you running for a while unless you have some very special needs.

Basically, the openMosix software includes both a set of kernel patches and support tools. The patches extend the kernel to provide support for moving processes among machines in the cluster. Typically, process migration is totally transparent to the user. However, by using the tools provided with openMosix, as well as third-party tools, you can control the migration of processes among machines.

Let's look at how openMosix might be used to speed up a set of computationally expensive tasks. Suppose, for example, you have a dozen files to compress using a CPU-intensive program on a machine that isn't part of an openMosix cluster. You could compress each file one at a time, waiting for one to finish before starting the next. Or you could run all the compressions simultaneously by starting each compression in a separate window or by running each compression in the background (ending each command line with an &). Of course, either way will take about the same amount of time and will load down your computer while the programs are running.
