Well, the Webmaster is counting down the days to gainful unemployment. To say he isn't happy is an understatement. He's now looking at contract jobs as well as trying to find permanent roles, but this time of year, companies are generally laying off, not hiring.
We would love to think that the ad revenues from the main site and the blog could keep us from starving, however, we haven't' seen a payment from the aggregators in over a year. Simply put, the ads are probably being blocked. Oh well, so be it.
Well, at least the Angry Niece is excited. She'd just about ready to pop with her first baby in a few weeks.
Until next time...

Greetings all. Well, as of right now, the Angry Webmaster has no job prospects. The position he was looking in his Real World Job has vaporized. He was being asked to backfill a position that someone had left. Last week he found out that they won't be filling it for the foreseeable future due to mergers, acquisitions and reorganizations. The Webmaster has applied to a couple of internal openings, but isn't expecting to hear back about them.
The external position he was excited about, and then told that they weren't moving forward turned out to be what the Webmaster thought. It was a hiring freeze, and it wasn't just for the company that the Webmaster was applying to, it was also the company that purchased the first company. The Webmaster has heard rumors that managers in both places are furious about this and don't know how they will make their deliverables. In any case, the Webmaster has been applying to openings all over the place, including contract work. (Which he loathes with a passion)
We still have a couple of weeks before the hammer falls on Our Hero, and he does have a severance package which will help, but he would rather have a job.
Until Next Time...

Good day angry fans. Well, the job the Webmaster was hoping for has fallen through. He received a call from their HR person saying that "They have decided not to move forward with the process." whatever that means. The Webmaster's contacts inside are at a loss to understand what happened and are looking into it. The suspicion is a sudden hiring freeze.
The Webmaster still has a good chance of being transferred internally at his current Real World Job, however, there are a lot of hoops the department managers have to jump through to get this accomplished. While they do want our Angry Hero, it might be after the first of the year, in which case he will be out of work, but also getting his severance package. If/when he is brought back in, double pay checks for a while!! :)
On the systems front, The Webmaster now has a duel hard drive work station, both using hybrid 2TB hard drives. The system does seem more responsive now which is a good thing.
The RSS feed on the Blog is now working again. The Angry Systems Administrator isn't sure what happened, but suspect that the hosting company rebooted the server which may have cleared any locks or finalized any new configurations. All the posts that were missing in the Feed showed up and are now available.
And finally, the java based quote generator on the Home page has been removed. It's old technology now and the current browsers keep throwing security messages. We will look around and see if we can find a new version.
Until next time...
