Ready for another great month of bulking!

Another month of bulking is underway! I’m pleased with the results of my first month (see yesterday’s update for a detailed analysis), but this month I’m going to work even harder. My strength is up, my energy levels are through the roof and, aside from the ever-present minor aches and pains in my shoulders, I’m 100% injury-free.

I still have not made up my mind about how long I’m going to bulk this year. Right now I’m leaning towards three months (until the end of November), but I may change my mind and bulk through the end of December. I may not make up my mind until the last minute.

I’ve got to get breakfast going, I’m running a little behind this morning. Big chest and abs workout tonight – can’t wait!

4:43 PM UPDATE. IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ
The datacenter in downtown Orlando where the JSF servers are located has been evacuated due to some boneheaded construction worker who broke a massive water pipe on the 15th floor. The pipe break caused the sprinkler system to go off in the entire building. Between the broken pipe and the sprinklers, a massive amount of water was released. There is presently a lot of water coming down the elevator shaft and all the equipment closets. Thankfully my equipment and most of the critical equipment in the datacenter was not damaged by the sprinklers….

…however, the water is slowly building up under the floor where all the wiring and electrical outlets are. Further, the authorities have cut the power to the entire building and ordered everyone out. At this point we can’t do anything except hope that the water doesn’t rise high enough to short out the equipment, and keep fuel in the two massive diesel-powered generators that are keeping all the equipment running. It may be days before power is restored, and the possibility still exists that the authorities will make us turn off the generators.

All JSF data is backed up and safely off-site, and I have fully redundant hardware off-site. In an effort to further minimize any possible data loss, I will be doing backups twice daily instead of once daily until this problem has been resolved.

If the site suddenly goes down, you’ll know why. I’m doing everything in my power to make sure it doesn’t, but right now I’m pretty helpless to do much more.

I’ll keep you all updated.
