Moving today’s workout to tomorrow; New AtLarge product: BCAA+!

I decided to postpone this morning’s usual workout (chest/delts/triceps) until tomorrow morning. I love working out on Thanksgiving morning, and I’ll certainly be getting plenty of post-workout nutrition all day long. I started working as soon as I got up this morning because I’d like to knock off a little early today. I’m cooking Thanksgiving dinner for the family tomorrow, and I have a lot of prep work to do in the kitchen this afternoon…. [Read more]

A couple of videos from Sunday’s ride: my favorite trail at Wekiwa.

Yesterday I talked in some amount of detail about my favorite section of trail at Wekiva State Park. I’ve never posted video footage of this particular trail before, so last night I took the footage from Sunday’s ride and assembled a video (actually two videos). I decided to include the entire 2.7 mile section of trail in the video, and the entire ride takes about 24 minutes. I had to split the video into two… [Read more]

Great ride yesterday – details on my favorite section of trail @ Wekiwa.

Even though I was tired yesterday morning I saddled up and rode over to Wekiwa state park. I wound up putting in just shy of 20 miles, and half of that distance was off-road. The paved riding was a nice warm-up before I got to the meat of the ride. Once I got to the forest the first thing I did was ride north from Marker 10 to Marker 18. This part of the trail… [Read more]

Didn’t sleep well, riding today anyway; Hydration pak cleaning tip.

I woke up around 1:00 this morning and simply could not fall back asleep. I have a lot on my mind right now, and no matter what I tried I could not quiet my thoughts and get back to dreamtown. I decided to get up and do some computer work, and after about an hour I finally started to feel drowsy again. Once I got back in bed it still took at least another 30… [Read more]

More frustrating (home) Internet issues; No riding today; Vacation plans.

Bah, I woke up to more Internet issues this morning. This router that my service provider forces us to use with their Road Runner Lightning service is absolute garbage (Motorola SBG6580, if you’re interested). I’m going to disable wireless on the Motorola and put it in bridge mode so I can use my own wireless-n router and see if that helps. If I continue to have problems I’m going back to Turbo. 40 Mbps is… [Read more]

Internet outages & burnt “cakes”? To the DJ who mentioned me this morning.

Yesterday I had my home Internet service upgraded. Everything was working perfectly until sometime after 3:00 AM this morning (I know this because a backup I was downloading completed at 3:10 AM). When the new cable modem tried to renew its IP address everything crashed and burned. So I woke up this morning to no Internet service. You’d think that getting my service restored so I could get to work would be the top priority…. [Read more]

Servers settled in; Skipped yesterday’s workout; Looking forward to a break.

Yesterday was a very productive day. I’ve got the servers almost entirely settled in to their new home, and the entire process has gone extremely well. I did have to take the database offline for about 30 seconds yesterday afternoon, but apart from that there has been no down time other than the physical move. Because of the server move I’ve fallen behind on my regular work, so today and tomorrow I’ll be playing catch-up…. [Read more]

Busy morning; AtLarge special; December “100 Challenge” open for entry.

I’m super swamped right now, so just a quick update this morning. As you may have read yesterday, the move to our new Network Operations Center has gone 100% according to plan! I want to thank my friend and former co-worker Adam (who now works for Choopa – the new home for the JSF servers) for hooking us up with the rack space and bandwidth, and also for making sure yesterday went so smoothly. It’s… [Read more]

The JSF servers are safely in the new NOC – all services are now restored!

If you’re reading this (hint: you are), then the JSF servers have safely arrived and been installed in the new Network Operations Center. Whew! It’s obviously been a very stressful 24 hours for me. There is still a lot of work related to the move that needs to be done over the next couple of days, but I’ve planned things so that none of the work will be service-affecting. That said, things don’t always go… [Read more]

JSF server move is happening today – there will be down time.

The JSF servers are being moved to a new data center today! There will be approximately 24 hours of down time starting any time now. Please see below for the details. While the servers are down I will post updates to the JSF Facebook and Twitter accounts, so check those places for the latest information. IMPORTANT: The JSF servers are moving to a new data center on Monday, November 15, 2010. During the move the… [Read more]
