Jingle Bells...Bah! Humbug! The Webmaster isn't feeling very cheery
right now since this will be his last week of gainful employment for the
foreseeable future. There is a slight glimmer of hope however. He was
contacted by his contracting firm and asked if he was interested in a
technology security job. The Webmaster had seen that job posted, but didn't
apply for it since he didn't feel qualified.
One of the Webmaster's biggest problems is a tendency to underestimate his
abilities. While this is a good thing for his employers, (They get a
pleasant surprise rather then a nasty one from a resume inflator), it does
make it harder for him to actually land a job.
However, he is hoping that he will at least get an interview. Since it's
with the same company he just finished a contract with, he has a slightly
better the normal chance. His manager knows people over in that business
unit and is quite willing to help him get the job. The Webmaster doesn't
expect to hear back one way or the other until after the new year.
Now, since some people seem to consider this news, it looks like the younger
Spears sister has decided to get her self in the family way. Why people give
a damn about these two is beyond us. Granted the elder Spears sister is
amusing as she runs herself aground at flank speed. All we can say regarding
the younger Spears is, "The trailer trash doesn't fall far from the
Global Warming once again reared it's ugly head again. There's now about 3
feet of snow in the Webmaster's front yard. He's been out clearing snow all
week long. An interesting thing he read this week was the
have actually gone down a bit over the last few years. We've also been
reading about the Antarctic ice sheets getting thicker over the last few
Fanatics from the Church of Global Warming don't want to consider the fact
that the Earth has been a lot hotter in the past as well as a lot colder. At
one point the Earth was a snowball with ice sheets reaching to the equator.
These boneheads would have ranted and raved back 12,000 years ago hen the
last ice age ended. Screw 'em we say! Bring it on! It's a lot easier to get
cooler the it is to keep warm.
Next week will be the end of the year posting. This is the point when we
create a new News page and archive the previous years news. We also clean
out the mailbox and store all our rants for the year. So until then, Merry
December 17, 2007
Oh this is just so wonderful! The Webmaster, planning to get an early
start this morning, got up and looked out the window. First he looked at is
front walk, and seeing no snow breathed a sigh of relief. Then he saw his
driveway, the one he spent 2 hours clearing out after the storm Sunday. It
was completely blocked. Yes, the highly efficient city department of public
works had made a pass after the Webmaster finished shoveling out. There was
a 4 cubic foot of compressed snow in the entrance.
Of course, the Webmaster had put away his snow blower. He expected some
filling in of the driveway, but this was pathetic. It seemed to the Angry
Webmaster that this was done in a deliberate manner, as if the plow driver
had pushed the snow in and then hit it with a water hose. The Webmaster
spent 45 minutes chopping that block of ice up and tossing it on to a nearby
snowbank. This is real fun to do with a plastic snow shovel and an
entrenching tool. We would really really like to thank those Boneheads in
Bali for all their Global Warming crap. In fact The Angry Webmaster was
thanking them with every swing of his shovel. Where do we send our heating
In political news, our man Fred! Picked up a major endorsement today. Iowa's
5th district Representative Steve King has endorsed Fredrick Dalton Thompson
for president. Although the Webmaster doesn't know a lot about Iowa, (Other
then driving from Des Moines to the northeast a very long time ago), we
understand that this is a big win for Fred! Apparently, Mitt Romney thought
he was going to get the endorsement and was rather surprised not to get it.
The Anger Central political consultant isn't. Gov. Romney is basically a
RINO and will say anything to get elected.
Anger Central sends a big Thank You! To Representative Steve King.
December 16, 2007
The Webmaster heard back from three jobs he applied to. "Thank you but
we don't want you." They put it nicer then that, (The two that wrote back
personally. The third was a form letter), but it was still a rejection. So
the great employment search continues!
In other news....
The Webmaster is sitting at his desk, sipping a cup of fresh coffee and
looking out his window at the heavy snowfall. Great! More shoveling to do!
What happened to all this "Global Warming" that blithering idiotic hypocrite
Algore has been screaming about? Once again he has proven that he is a
natural born heat sink. Every time he opens his mouth, freezing cold and
massive amounts of snow appear. Maybe they should have their next subsidized
vacation...err conference, someplace that is actually a cold miserable place
and can handle the parking for all their private jets. Might we suggest
Yellowknife. Canada? ;)
In technical news, Something odd has been happening to the Data Center's WAN
connection. The last few days we've been seeing up to 30% packet loss to
various sites across the internet. We aren't sure if it's a problem with the
local node, our Service provider, or something further up line. We tend to
think it might be further up line, unless our service provider is playing
And getting back to the horrors of Global Warming, the Webmaster just spent
an hour digging out Mrs. Webmasters car so she could go to work. Mrs.
Webmaster's employer, who is more evil then Satan's Mother in-law, told her
she was opening up and that she had no trouble driving to her business. The
fact that The Evil One lives down the street from her business means nothing
They won't have any business today since no one is going anywhere unless
they have no choice. As of this moment, there's about 12" of snow out there
and it's still coming down at a fair clip.
Well it's time to whip the Angry Facilities manager and get him back out
clearing the Anger Central Data Center parking lot. The Angry Manager is
taking the hint from Satan's Mother in-law and ordering everyone in to work.
December 8, 2007
And now the search begins! The Webmaster met with a recruiter yesterday,
will be going through his exit interview next week, (Now that's a first. The
Webmaster is usually just tossed out the door with no notice), and will be
meeting yet another recruiter on the 18th.
The Webmaster really hates going on interviews. An interview is basically a
sales job. You are trying to sell yourself to a potential employer.
(Hmm, sounds like prostitution to us. Pity the Webmaster
can't just dress up in revealing clothes and flash his "goodies")
Now if the webmaster wanted to go into sales, he would be a salesman.
Since he hates dealing with people, (No, really? I
would never have guessed! The angry Psychologist), Shut up
you quack! Anyway, as we were saying, the Webmaster isn't really good at
selling himself. No doubt this has hurt him in the past. Oh well.
In political news, We have been watching the rise of Governor Huckabee with
growing horror. This clown makes Jimmy Carter look good. If he doesn't flame
out soon, we might have to open a section here just for his idiocies. Of
course, We continue to support our man Fred! In fact, we have come up with
our dream ticket. Fred Thompson and Duncan Hunter. Those two will crush our
enemies and create peace, tranquility and economic success for this country.
And finally, yesterday was the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Up
until the 9/11/2001 attack, the worst attack on the United States in
history. The 9/11 attack was worse in that it killed more people, and was a
flat out terror attack. At least the Imperial Japanese went after military
targets that could shoot back. (And did)
Each year the number of veterans of that attack grows smaller and smaller.
We must remember what happened and honor their memory.
December 5, 2007
The Webmaster has been told his last day at his real world job is December
28th. Oh well. It was expected since this was a contracting job. The sad
part is that he has nothing else lined up. It hasn't been for lack of trying
though. Meanwhile, he has a meeting with a headhunter later this week.
Now who let Algore out? It snowed here and it's about 17F outside as this is
typed. The Angry Facilities manager is ion a tear. He tested the snow
removal device a month ago to make sure it was fully functional. So what
happens? 6AM and the damn thing wouldn't start! The now REALLY, REALLY Angry
Facilities manager had to get out the old snow removal system, better known
as a shovel, and clear the parking lot by hand. He finally was able to check
it last night and found the problem. While testing the system, he forgot to
put more gas in it. (Feel free to laugh and make sport of the Angry
December 1, 2007
Here we are, heading into the home stretch of 2007. The Christmas season
is upon us, (Yes, Christmas you politically correct morons), and 'tis the
season to spend money. It would be nice if the Anger Central bank account
was overflowing with cash, but it isn't. :(
The Webmaster has once again been told his job will be ending no later then
the end of the year. Of course that is when his contract is scheduled to end
in any case. It could end sooner of course. The Webmaster continues with his
job search and actually spoke to real live people this week! *Shock*
He had a phone interview with a company less then 2 miles from the Anger
Central Primary Dwelling and it was a job he was really interested in. He
spoke with the HR person for about 20 minutes. At the conclusion the HR rep
thanked him and mentioned he had another 40 people to call. Needless to say
the Webmaster saw his chances screaming out the window at Mach 3. The next
day he got the formal "Thank you, but we don't want you working here" email.
Oh well. :(
The Webmaster will be meeting with a Headhunter next week and we will see ho
that goes. He's also applied to 30 companies this month and might get a call
In other news, the Webmaster classes are proceeding. He's working with the
Angry Systems administrator to set up several Virtual Machines for his MCSA
courses. He's on his last class, and needs to work on the DNS stuff. Due to
the condition of the systems in the classroom environment, he was having
issues getting things to work.
If you were watching the news yesterday, you may have seen the reports of a
maniac storming the Hillary Clinton for Tyrant...err President office in New
Hampshire. All ended well, (In that no one was hurt), and Hillary proved her
metal by running away and hiding rather then carry on with her campaign.
Bodes well for her administration if there's a crises don't you think? ;)
When this was first reported, we wondered here if this was Dennis Kucinich
trying to get people to actually pay attention to him. Sadly no. It was some
poor man suffering from a real mental illness, (Schizophrenia) as opposed to
Kucinich's normal delusions of competence.
And finally, some moron appears to have placed an order for snow. According
to the weather reports, we are supposed to get snow this week. Where's
global warming when you want it?
(Al Gore must be shooting his mouth off again)
November 24, 2007
Hello from Anger Central! As you may have noticed, we have been making a
few minor updates to our RSS feeds. We've also been looking for a better RSS
feed editor and we did see one that looked nice. However, we decided to stay
with the one we have now to avoid a repeat of the last RSS screw up.
However, we are still playing with the feed so don't be surprised if things
Still nothing on the job front for our hero, the Webmaster. This
video went viral
last summer on YouTube.com. It was a
seminar given by a law firm on how to comply with the labor laws in this
country, but not actually hire an American. It was all about getting H1B
visa holders into those jobs at a much lower cost. Basically, it shows that
most of the job postings, (at least in the Information Technology field),
The law firm in question was blindsided when this video, which wasn't
supposed to be made public, was. They were spinning faster then a Clinton
Press Secretary. We heard that there was some congressional interest in
this, but we don't know what came of it.
In other news, The Webmaster has posted an
editorial on why he is supporting
Fred! Thompson for president. As
usual it is in multiple formats for your convenience. He will also post the
text in the RSS feed as well. It is rather lengthy so be aware of that.
November 22, 2007
We've been playing with the RSS feed and in one of our readers older
postings suddenly showed up, pushing the normal ones further down. This
might just be a small bug in the RSS editor we're using or a small bug in
one of the feed readers we run. It only appears to happen with FeedReader so
far as we can tell. Oh well. 8-D
Mrs. Webmaster is in the Anger Central cooking complex preparing some tasty
h'orderves for the Angry Family Thanksgiving Feast. We will be traveling
over hill and dale to the Angry Sister and Brother in-law's home for
victuals and adult beverages. Mrs. Webmaster, being from a foreign land,
doesn't like the traditional meals and will bring something for herself.
The Angry Entertainment director recently purchased a box set of DVD's. The
crew here at Anger Central will spend the weekend with popcorn and beer
Battlestar Galactica, the miniseries and Season one in preparation to
Battlestar Galactica: Razor this weekend.
So, to all our fans, have a great Thanksgiving, drive safely, and try not to
take potshots at the politically correct morons who want to ban all our
holidays. Bloodstains are so hard to get out of the carpets after all. ;)
November 21, 2007
Now that was interesting. The Webmaster just got a call asking if
angry.net was for sale. Umm, nooo, it isn't. Not unless you're going to pay
us enough so that we can retire and never work again, living a life of total
Caller ID is an interesting thing. We were able to track the number back to
a name, (Neither of which we will make public), but haven't had a chance to
see if this was someone interested in a private sale or if a megacorp was
interested. Oh well, we have absolutely no doubt that the caller will see
this posting. Feel free to drops as a line explaining why you're interested
in our humble little domain name. ;)
In RSS news, we are now looking at posting the entire rant in our feeds.
Normally we just put up a sentence or two and hope you will come on in and
pay us a lot of money...err a visit.
(Sorry, the Webmaster has dollar signs floating in front of his eyes) We may
decide that this isn't a great idea and go back to the old method. We'll
keep you informed.
Also, if you are subscribed, you may want to re-subscribe to our RSS feed.
We like seeing all the purty stats at feedburner. :D
November 17, 2007
Well, the Webmaster is still employed for the moment. This state of
affairs should last about another 2 weeks if he's lucky. Oh well, as we've
said in the past: "hen the phone doesn't ring, you'll know it's that great
job you wanted."
The Webmaster has added a link to donate money to Fred! Thompson's campaign
for president of the United States. As stated earlier, we have decided to
back Mr. Thompson. If you are tired of the usual morons, please donate to
Speaking of politics, we received a rant, (Poorly written), regarding the
governor of Michigan. Since her full name was supplied we went online and
looked her up. (No one at Anger Central had heard of her) We posted the rant
under a new page titled "Governors".
The Webmaster was wondering why he hadn't thought of creating this before.
In any case, since the governor is an elected public official, and the
ranter made no threats, just his/her opinion on how the governor was
handling things, we put it up. We will be moving around the site looking for
other postings on governors and moving them in.
The Webmaster is talking with the others here at Anger Central on how best
to handle postings regarding other countries. The United States is unique in
having a system of governors as well as independent States. Most other
countries have provinces. We're afraid that our lack of knowledge of other
countries method of sub-national government is showing.
Still, if you have a province with a moron running it that you are angry at,
please post it. Also post a little history for us so we can better
understand how things work.
This week is Thanksgiving here in the United States. Turkeys everywhere are
running for their lives as the turkey genocide begins in earnest. (You can
run, but you can't hide Gobler! There's a platter with your name on it!
HAHAHAHA! The Angry Chef)
November 11, 2007
Today is Veterans Day. Please take a moment to remember those who served
their lives so that this country could remain free. Yes, this means you
idiot Nutroots! If it wasn't for the soldiers you hate so much, most of you
would be lying in an unmarked pit somewhere.
The Webmaster is still not hearing from companies that should be begging him
to work for them. If they only knew what they were missing...
Mrs. Webmaster is taking a few days off this week. She is going to another
business run by a friend and is going to be learning another job. If she
likes it and they want her, she is going to quit the hell job she is in now.
In silly news...
Last night the Webmaster went out with his parents, sister and brother
in-law to try a new restaurant. The food, when it finally arrived, was
plentiful and tasty. The floor show was fun too. Some whacko stormed in and
started campaigning for President. When he was forcibly thrown out,
screaming that he was being assaulted, The Webmaster's father commented, "So
much for Ron Paul." ;)
There was some nervousness though, since this guy was a real whack job. The
Angry Brother in-law was on his feet to help toss this bozo out if needed.
The Webmaster, who's proclivities towards the use of unnecessary force are
well known, remained seated. He had discovered a new ale and was imbibing
far more then he normally does. (That stuff really packs a wallop!)
However the staff at the restaurant had no trouble ejecting Dr. Paul and to
the loving arms of the local constabulary. The proceeded to practice their
training in tasing, night sticking and water boarding on this yahoo. ;)
Speaking of this fine ale, The Webmaster wasn't able to pronounce the name.
It just looked good on the menu. Normally, if he partakes of adult
beverages, he only has on or two at the most. Last night he had three.
However, because the chef was distracted with tossing the bum out, he
botched the Webmasters order. He was given another drink as compensation
while his dinner was readied for consumption.
4 large glasses of the dark brew later, it is safe to say that the
Webmaster, with his well known low tolerance for alcohol was feeling no
pain. While he is not one of those who gets obnoxious or loud, he does tend
to get a bit silly. He let the server know that he wasn't driving, and that
since he lived nearby he would be knee-walking home. He then started a pool
on how many tries it would take for him to get his key into the lock on the
palatial Anger Central digs. (only took 2 tries)
When Mrs. Webmaster got home from work a few hours later she found her
husband in bed with the lights on. Since she wanted to talk to him, she held
his nose closed to wake him up. She was very amused. ;)
Speaking of Mrs. Webmaster, she has contacted her sister now living in
Alabama. It seems that her husband has just landed a job in Tennessee and
will be moving north in a month or so. This will put the sisters closer
Well that's enough for this week. Stay angry, post that anger, and buy stuff
in the Anger Central Company
November 3, 2007
We have updated the FAQ page. Someone could figure
out what the Chicken Switch would do and blew away a posting. Oh well.
The Webmaster and his beloved bride are fighting colds. Needless to say,
they are taking turns on who can act the most miserable around others.
Halloween was this week as well. The Webmaster, not feeling in the Halloween
mood, had planned on handing out cans of Tuna fish to all the little
urchins. Mrs. Webmaster talked him out although she thought it was rather
Oh yes, the Red Sox won the series in 4. whoopee. :|
(Sports fans we are not)
This week the Angry Niece turned 18. Where has the time gone. It seems
like yesterday when the Webmaster handed her back to her father with the
remark "Here you go, I think the tide just came in and there's a few logs
floating around as well." Mrs. Webmaster gave her a nice dress. There was
much ooohing and awwing over it.
Now that the silly season is in full swing, the silly people known as
campaign workers have been annoying everyone at the Anger Central main
office. First it was the rich white liberals in their Volvo's asking, more
like whining, for support for Obama, and yesterday it was some young skull
full of manure campaigning for the Hillarybeast. The Webmaster told her
there was no way he was going to support her, but perhaps she should ask
Mrs. Webmaster for a donation. After all, she is a Chinese citizen and isn't
allowed to vote. Recent history indicates this is the preferred donor for
the Clinton campaign. We should get that "Angry Webmaster for Tyrant"
campaign sign up in front of the main office. That should get a few chuckles
and perhaps the nitwits will leave us alone.
The Angry supply clerk made a run to the local confectionary store and
picked up some sweets for the little monsters due out later this week. The
Webmaster's first thought was to hand out cans of Tuna to the "Little
Darlings." The Angry Chef has a huge supply of that item from his last visit
to the local superstore. ;D
And finally, Go Sox!
October 21, 2007
Unbelievable. Last Monday we checked our overnight rants and in there
was something from a 911 truther. The Webmaster read through it with disgust
before deleting it. Thank you, but no truthers need apply... Unless you want
to be used as live fire targets for the Marines that is.
Another thing we're starting to see is angst postings. These are mostly
aimed the "Angry at myself" section. A lot of these don't get posted. We're
not here to make you feel better by letting you whine. We need blind fury!
Rage! Anger! We're not interested in how depressed you feel because you're
such a loser. Tell us why you are angry about being such a loser. Take
inspiration from Islamic Rage Boy's picture. :)
The Webmaster is still not hearing from any potential employers. As we've
said before, "When the phone doesn't ring, you'll know it's a potential
Mrs. Webmaster's sister will be arriving in the U.S. this week! Now if Mrs.
Webmaster will quit her crappy job and allow the Webmaster to help her find
a new one...
And finally, The Angry Niece will be 18 this week. Where does the time go?
The Webmaster still remembers when she was screaming her head off and
loading her diapers. The moral to this story? Don't get old. :)
October 14, 2007
We've been getting a few posts regarding people with significant weight
problems. These were flat out insults as opposed to being angry about
something. Additionally, this is NOT Jeopardy. Sending in something in the
form of a question probably won't get it posted. 'Nuff said.
In other news, Mrs. Webmaster's sister will be arriving in the United States
around the 25th of this month. YAY! No doubt the Angry Brother
In-law, Southern division, will be overjoyed that his wife will finally be
coming to her new home. The Webmaster foresees a large number of telephone
calls in his wife's future. ;)
October 6, 2007
The Webmaster's father is about to celebrate his 83rd birthday this
week. Please send along your best wishes with a generous cash deposit via
our Paypal link on our home page, or by visiting
our Company Store. :)
September 30, 2007
What to say, what to say. Not to much going on. The Webmaster is still
looking for a new job before the old one ends. (He would like to leave on
his terms just once) It's the old story of "When the phone doesn't ring, you
know it's a potential employer". He's sent out 30+ résumé's this month and
only gotten 4 calls, all of which were for positions he wasn't interested in
or way to far to commute. (Look at a map guys)
You know, it's really hard to get motivated when you know you're going to be
on the unemployment roll soon. Another pet peeve of ours is the headhunters
who call. They are pretty much a useless bunch. They make all these promises
then you never hear from them again. It doesn't help that the turnover rate
on those people is sub-orbital.
In any case, we're futzing around with our site, seeing if we can actually
generate some money. Traffic has gone up significantly. How about it people?
Buy some stuff! :)
The Webmaster has been toying with the idea of posting some political
diatribes, but is holding off. There are plenty of people out there doing
Until next week.
September 22, 2007
Quite a few updates this week. We had a router failure in the Anger Central
Datacenter and had to replace the unit. We have finally gotten it up and
running and it looks like everything is working. The Angry Network Engineer
isn't overly thrilled with the Linksys Router. It's not a bad router, but
doesn't have all the capabilities of our old Netgear unit. We have noticed a
significant difference on network performance. Also it looks like the SSH
connection to the Anger Central BBS
is working a lot more reliably now.
In political news it looks like everyone is all in now. Anger Central
normally stays out of the political debates, with the exception of our Notes
from Anger Central responses to some posted stupidity. This time we are
announcing that Anger Central is backing Fred
"Fred Thompson?!?" You scream in utter outrage. Yep, We're with Fred! Our
reasoning is simple. Rudy Guiliani is another Bush in drag. His antipathy to
the Second Amendment as well as his past statements and actions on illegal
immigration preclude him from our support.
We've watched Mitt Romney for 4 years as Governor of Massachusetts. We
weren't impressed. John McCain hasn't made a good choice since he banked
left instead of right and ran into that missile over Vietnam. Most people
don't remember, but he was part of the Keating 5, a group that helped a
number of Savings & Loan companies basically steal their depositors blind.
McCain wasn't indicted, but because of that his judgment has always been
suspect. His hostility to the First Amendment is well known. (See
McCain/Feingold campaign finance reform law)
Tancredo and Hunter are two others we could support, but neither one has any
chance at all.
On the traitor...err...Democrat side, Osama Obama is a flat out empty suit.
He would like to surrender to Al Qeda and invade Pakistan. Hillary Clinton?
Please! She is a greedy self-centered little tyrant wannabe who thinks the
rules do not apply to her. By rights she should be cooling her heels in a
federal penitentiary. John Edwards? In our opinion he is a flat out crook.
The others are even worse.
If any of these bozo's became president, we really doubt that the U.S. would
survive. A full scale civil war is not beyond the realm of possibility if
these twerps get in.
Now, where does Anger Central stand politically? Over here more or less. :)
Actually, we tend to believe in a far smaller government at all levels, low
taxes and a good strong military that blows away islamofascist scumbag
terrorists. We also believe that if you are in this country illegally, you
have no rights at all except to leave quickly. If you commit a crime here, a
quick hanging will do nicely. Deploying the military along with civilian
volunteers at the borders with orders to shoot on sight anyone crossing
illegally would also be a good idea in our view.
"But Webmaster, isn't your wife an immigrant?" Yes she is. However, she and
her sister obeyed the laws and waited their turns to enter this country
legally. We don't have any problems with people who immigrate legally and
work as hard as they can to assimilate as best as they can. To all you
others? Leave now.
Ok, this probably should have gone into the editorial pages, but what the
heck? We have no doubt that the code pinko's and other fellow travelers will
be blasting away out us soon enough. That's why we have this extra large bit
bucket handy. ;)
Until next time.
September 20, 2007 Part II
Well, the Angry Network Engineer has installed the new router and our
Notwork is back to being a Network again. The BBS server is now accessible
via telnet and SSH connections. FTP is a bit iffy, and mail and News groups
should be working again. We'll keep working on it, but let us know if you
have any problems. Try accessing it at
Anger Central BBS
September 20, 2007
We lost our router yesterday and had to get a new one. Our old router, a
Netgear that was 6 years old died yesterday morning. The Angry Network
Engineer went out and bought a Linksys router. He's never worked ith one of
those before so it's going to take a little time to get it all configured.
Because of this you may not be able to access the Anger Central BBS this
week. We hope to get it back up and running ASAP.
News September 16, 2007
Finally some good news! Mrs. Webmaster's sister has finally gotten her
visa and will be joining her husband in Alabama! (Sorry about having to go
to Huntsville Sister In-law)
On the less then good news front, The Webmaster is still looking for a job.
He hasn't been told the actual end date for his present contract, only that
it's in October.
He's had a lot of calls from headhunters, but only one from an actual
company. He was asked when it would be a good time to speak. Hopefully the
potential employer will call back soon. The Webmaster has seen a number of
jobs that looked interesting and has sent in Résumé's As usual, when the
doesn't ring, we know it's a potential employer.
We have begun to get the hang of this RSS editor. It has a few little bugs
in it, but all in all it does just what we want it to do. If you see any
issues, let us know.
September 10, 2007
Boy when we screw up we really screw up! The Webmaster toasted the main
site and we had to restore from yesterday morning's backups. We don't
"think" we lost anything, but we aren't sure. If you find a broken link let
us know at links
September 9, 2007
Hmm, posting dropped off a bit. Probably due to school reopening. We're
pretty sure it will pick up again soon.
The search for new gainful employment for the Webmaster continues. While he
has a job, it's scheduled to end soon and he isn't waiting around to start
looking. So far he's had a lot of calls from assorted recruiters, none of
whom seem to understand that when you say "I'll email you my contact
information." you really should email your F***ING CONTACT information!!
Unfortunately the quality of recruiters has plummeted in the last few years.
One the Webmaster spoke with had been on the job for three WEEKS!
Oh well, if you know of a company in need of a Network/Systems
Administrator, drop a line to
Jobsforthewebmaster@angry.net. Be advised that if you use this link you
will get a bounce back asking you to confirm that you are a real person. The
Angry Mail Administrator does go through the filters each morning, but it's
better if you just reply to the request.
On a different note, the Webmaster has been playing with a new application
he found called Libra. It's a database for all your books, CD's and DVD's.
You can get it for free at Getlibra.com.
So far the Webmaster has loaded over 300 books and 50 DVD's. He hasn't
started on the CD collection yet. Mrs. Webmaster wants him to sell
everything. Sorry sweetheart, I'm keeping everything!! ;)

More brief notes. We have updated our back end scripts that tie into our
Add page. We have seen a few evil scummy slimeball spammers try and punch
through our filters, all to no avail of course. Still, we dislike getting
the few pieces of crap that do manage to get through. So we recently went
off to one of our favorite scripting sites,
Tectite.com, and downloaded the latest
and greatest revisions. They seem to work and we'll see how well they
deflect the scuzzy scum sucking sleazoids pretending to be actual peoples
attempts at annoying us with Viagra ads. ;)
If you see any issues please drop us a line at

Just a quick update. Our old RSS editor has decided not to work the way it
should any longer. It was a very basic tool and worked for years. However,
for some unknown reason, it started dumping it's configuration settings into
an entirely different directory. This is why we lost our old listings. We
have found a new editor and it seems to do the job we want. Like the older
one, this is also free which is why we like it. :)
We will be testing it during the days ahead so don't be surprised if you see
changes appearing in your RSS feed readers.
September 2, 2007
All sorts of things going on here this week. To begin with, it looks
like the Webmaster has a month left on his Real World Job. The contract will
be ending in October sometime. :(
So it's back on the Resume express. The Webmaster actually started sending
out Resumes a month ago but now he is moving into desperation mode. We knew
going in this job wasn't going to last, but we had hoped the Webmaster would
find something internally with this company. He has applied to a few
internal jobs, but nothing has come of it. His manager likes him and if
given a choice would keep our hero. Unfortunately, it isn't his decision. Oh
You might notice that our RSS feed doesn't look quite right. The Angry
Systems Administrator took the Webmaster's PC from him and formatted
everything down. Backups were made, but for some odd reason the RSS
generator we use didn't carry over correctly. Oh well. These things happen.
In any case everything else transferred correctly. We'll see of course.
So have a good Labor Day weekend all!
August 26, 2007
Well, you may have noticed a small change to the graphics of Anger
Central. After nearly 10 years of searching we have found the perfect
representative of Anger Central. Yes, it's Islamic Rage Boy! Nothing else
come close to the blind rage and anger of this guy. The popping eyes, the
mouth wide open, the upraised fist, he is the perfect representative of all
that is angry.
Of course this guy is flat out bug house nuts. With any luck he'll strap on
a suicide bomb belt and go on a practice live fire exercise before he hurts
In other news, Mrs. Webmaster has done it again. She managed to get pulled
over the other day for "Avoiding a traffic signal." She got a written
warning this time, (Probably because she pulled the old "I only speak little
English" bit). Apparently she was coming up on an intersection near the
Happy Couple's primary residence when the light turned red. It was late at
night, and she didn't feel like waiting so Mrs. Webmaster cut through a gas
station, thereby avoiding the light.
The police officer was not amused.
When the Webmaster saw the warning notice he was a bit confused. He to has
gone through that same gas station with the intent of avoiding the light.
He'll need to get with the Angry Attorney and check the traffic laws. This
must be a fairly new Revenue Enhancement procedure.
August 19, 2007
Well the Webmaster's trip to the dentist went well. The lost crown was
reattached and the two replacement fillings were done. The bill was large of
The Webmaster has also been putting in some overtime at his real world job.
Great! more cash in the governmental coffers. (Damn tax happy socialists!)
Other then this, not much has been happening around here. Still keeping an
eye out for another job in case the one the Webmaster is in now comes to a
In other news a former co-worker will be starting at the Webmaster's real
world work place in about a week. While he was looking through the internal
job lists he spotted one that would fit his friend to a "T". He connected
his friend with an HR rep and an offer letter was sent. YAY! :)
Meanwhile the Webmaster keeps an eye out for himself. His manager wants him
brought on full time, but he doesn't get to make the decision. He's a good
sort though and will put a good word in for the Webmaster if he finds
something in another department.
Mrs. Webmaster is "To Busy!" in her job. The happy couple have differing
shifts so they don't get to see each other much. WAAA! Mrs. Webmaster plans
on quitting her job and looking for another one. First she needs to go back
to China to see her Mother. She isn't well and recently fell and broke her
August 12, 2007
Oh now this was just wonderful! Last night the Angry Webmaster was out
with his parents having dinner. As he started chewing a bite of chicken he
felt something like a bone in his mouth. He spit it out and then felt
something funny with one of his teeth.
A crown had come off. There it was, sitting on his plate laughing at him.
He called his dentist knowing that the office was closed and got an
emergency number. He called that and got voice mail. The Webmaster, who was
rather living up to his first name of ANGRY, left a message. The on call
dentist called back a couple of hours later and let him know that he wasn't
actually the on call dentist. Someone screwed up at the office.
He and the Webmaster spoke for a few minutes and determined that this could
wait until the work week. Nice way to spend the weekend. In addition to
that, the Angry Webmaster is also scheduled to have two fillings replaced
later this week.
In other news, it looks like the Webmaster's contract is going to end
sometime in October. His manager, who wants to keep him, was talking with
him and pointed him to the internal job postings. The Webmaster applied to a
couple of them, but doesn't expect much to come from it. He's also posting
resumes to other companies. He's not going to wait until the hammer falls
August 6, 2007
Quick update. After yesterday's posting we went through our
Immigration section. We found several
broken links that led to various forms the USCIS requires for immigration.
We did a quick update on that and published last night.
Also today id the anniversary of the nuking of Hiroshima. Although it isn't
politically correct, two members of the Webmaster's family celebrate this
and the Nagasaki bombing each year. Mrs. Webmaster, (Who's home town was
occupied), and the Webmaster's father who was scheduled to be transferred
from Europe to the Pacific for
None of the soldiers or marines scheduled to land in Japan had any real
expectation of surviving. The casualties on both sides would have been
enormous. There are a number of books on the subject of "What IF" and we
suggest you pop over to the
Anger Central Company Store and take a look.
August 5, 2007
Well, traffic has picked up finally. Not a lot, but some. This makes the
angry statistician happy in any case.
On the personal front, Mrs. Webmaster has yet another one of her friends
from Fushun in the U.S. Legally of course. In fact this is why she told the
Webmaster. She asked if the Webmaster would speak to her friends husband
about immigration things. Of course he would. The Webmaster spoke with the
gentleman in question and spent a pleasant 30 minutes chatting away about
things including Mrs. Webmaster's sister.
The gentleman in question, who shall be known as "Agent Smith", was
concerned about what needed to be done. He thought the Immigration service
was going to send along a packet of forms to fill out, and he was also
worried about his new bride's visa running out. The Webmaster informed him
that the USCIS, better known as Clusterfuck Central, won't send anything out
except requests for money and fingerprints, and that he will need to get the
forms himself. He also informed Agent Smith that as far as his wife's
status, the clock has stopped.
The Webmaster pointed Agent Smith to the USCIS web page and told him that he
will need to get forms for the Adjustment of Status for Mrs. Smith and her
daughter, Ms. Smith, forms for an EAD, (Work permit), and also forms for an
advance parole in case the Smiths want to go back to China to visit family
before the green cards come through.
The Webmaster also pointed Agent Smith to his web site and specified the
link to his Immigration page. (Proved
here in case Agent Smith drops by for a visit) Hopefully we will have been
helpful in some small way. Considering the hassles that Clusterfuck Central
put the Agents through, (23 months to get the visas), we would also
recommend that they consult with an immigration attorney.
Agent Smith can to all the paperwork himself, but have the shyster go
through it and make sure every I is dotted and every T is crossed. We also
recommended that Agent Smith get several copies of his marriage certificate.
Knowing Clusterfuck Central, they will lose the one he sends in.
Now all that remains is Mrs. Webmaster's sister. Hopefully she will be
arriving in the deep south very soon.
July 29, 2007
Not to much happening here at Anger Central. We have found a new service we
like and we think you should take a look at
GrandCentral. It's a call
forwarding service and once set up, lets you have one number that forwards
to up to 6 other numbers. The Webmaster has set it up to dial his home, cell
and Skype numbers.
The company was recently bought by Google, so funding won't be to much of a
problem. It's also in Beta and invite only. Eventually, the service will
have both a free and pay service. If they start charging for what we use it
for, we'll drop it like a hot potato.
Meanwhile, on the real world job front, the Webmaster is starting to send
out resume's again. He is still employed, but as we stated last week, he is
not getting a warm and fuzzies. We hope the Webmaster is wrong, but he was
talking with some co-workers and all of us feel that the manager is being
eased out. We all hope he succeeds and he wins the battle. Still, the
Webmaster can't count on things. Oh well.
And finally, would Algore start talking about Global Warming again? It's
rather warm right no and we need him to start shooting his mouth off and
there by suck the excess heat out of the air. ;)
July 21, 2007
The Webmaster isn't getting "Warm and fuzzies" about continuing at his
present place of real world employment. He was signed on as a contractor, so
he never expected the job to last. His manager is being transferred to
another part of the country, and only accepted it if he would be continuing
his job role.
His manager, who he has "some minor issues with" has basically pulled all
his responsibilities and is giving them to a close personal friend. The
Webmaster likes his manager, and hasn't met the Big Cheese manager. From
what he understands, the person who may end up taking over everything is a
bit of a micromanager and likes to take credit for other people's work. In
addition, this new manager will not back up his subordinates if it will
Oh well, the Webmaster has started sending out resumes again. He expects
this contract to end in the next 6-8 weeks. The webmaster really hates
corporate politics too!
In political news, we read this week that Presidential wannabe Obama says
he's fine with Genocide in Iraq if we pull out. He is fine with the mass
slaughter of innocent men, women and children. Now you should ask yourselves
if you really think this scumbag, now to be known as Adolph Hitler Obama, is
really qualified to hold the office of meter maid?
Mrs. Webmaster went to New York City this week to get a new passport. Her
old one expired and she will need it to travel back and fourth to China, or
to other countries. It will be ready next week for pick up.
July 15, 2007
Once again there has been a dearth of postings to our little rant site.
This is one of the reasons we didn't update the site last week. Our
apologies. The other reason is the webmaster's new toy.
"Uh oh, Trouble!"
No, not really. The webmaster bought a new Cell phone, and he also dumped
Verizon as his carrier after many many years. (Going back to the old Nynex
days) The Webmaster found he could get a good deal through his company if he
went with AT&T. Since AT&T doesn't cripple the phones they sell or support,
which is the main reason the webmaster left Verizon, he signed up with them.
The phone is a Samsung A717
and to date The webmaster has had great fun with it. He bought a Bluetooth
connector for the primary development system, (Webmaster, we're going to
have to have yet another little talk about installing things on systems. The
Angry Systems Administrator), and has been downloading and uploading
music, pictures and addresses with great pleasure.
As we mentioned, one of the reasons the Webmaster ditched Verizon is their
habit of crippling the features on a cell phone in order to force you to use
their very expensive data transfer services. The Webmaster, being a cheap
bastard, wouldn't pay for the service. because of this, he rarely used the
built in camera, (1/2 megapixal), and has lost a few pictures of his beloved
The new phone has a 2 megapixal camera and it looks like it takes pictures
at least as well as his Sony digital camera. (Which is a 2MP camera and in
serious need of updating) It's also about the size of a Razor, but a bit
more substantial. Go ahead and follow the link and take a look.
In other news, Mrs. Webmaster will be heading don to New York City this week
for a day trip. Her passport expired last week and she needs to go to the
Chinese Consulate and have it renewed. She won't be driving down, but will
take a bus instead.
And finally, the Webmaster is fighting a *AAACHOOOO!!* cold right now. Being
a typical male, he's moping around and being miserable. Unfortunately he
can't take time off from work. Being a contractor, no work, no pay.
So, thanks for stopping in and start posting more good stuff!
July 2, 2007
All's quiet on the Angry front. To quiet in fact. We miss the 50+
postings a week we used to get. Now all we get is spam. :(
Now a few things making us angry...
We came upon this blog yesterday by
Michael Yon. He's a blogger
embedded with U.S. troops in Iraq. Last week the unit he was with engaged Al
Qaeda in an attempted ambush. (Al Qaeda attempting to ambush the troops) They
had rigged a small village with enough explosive to sink a battleship. The
U.S. and Iraqi forces didn't fall for that and took care of a number of
What they found when they entered the village was something right out of a
horror movie. The town was very quiet. The reason was simple.
AQI, (Al Qeda Iraq) had murdered every single man, woman and child, then
rigged a number of the bodies with booby traps.
Mr. Yon took a lot of pictures and wrote the story of what they found over
there. We recommend that you go there and read what he saw. Be advised,
don't do this on a full stomach. For those of you who think the U.S. should
run away, what happened in this village is just a small taste of what will
happen if we pull out before the New Iraqi Army is fully prepared.
For those of you to young to remember, the U.S. did this in Vietnam. Half
the population of Cambodia was slaughtered afterwards. If we run away, we
will just have to go back in 5 years, and that will probably be on a nuclear
battlefield. Think on this after you read the article.
June 22, 2007
We're sorry for the lack of updates last week, but nothing came in,
other then porn spam. (We really need to fix that captcha script)
We received a few posts this week and they have gone online. Mostly the crew
at Anger Central has been working to deep six this load of crap called an
immigration bill. What part of NO don't those crooks in congress not
understand? The "N" part or the "O" part? We think it's time for another
tea party. This
time, instead of tea into the harbor, how about politicians into the
June 10, 2007
Well, at least that stupid immigration bill failed...for now. Be on your
guard, those scum in Washington want to jam this thing down our throats.
It's a bit early, but Anger Central is looking at the next election. It's
time to get rid of all of them. More on this later.
In other news...
For some reason postings have dropped off. It looks like the crypto-fascist
totalitarian scum at Google might have banned us. Don't know why. For a
company whose motto is "Do no evil", they are a pretty evil bunch. Not to
worry, they will get their comeuppance, probably in front of a congressional
June 3, 2008
Now the Webmaster is ANGRY! In case you have been living in a cave, you
will know about the new immigration bill being proposed by President Bush.
Because of this bill the Webmaster has now contracted BDS. (Bush Derangement
Syndrome) This disaster of a bill, if it should become law will essentially
end the United States. The Webmaster has no problem with lawful immigration,
(See Mrs. Webmaster), but this POS being shoved down the throats of America
is nothing less then a reward for breaking the law.
While we support Bush in regard to the War on Terror, and Iraq, domestically
he has been a disaster. He likes to spend money that doesn't belong to him.
(Can we say Democrat?) This is one of the reasons for the deficit. The only
smart thing he did was cut taxes, which had the effect of generating more
tax revenue. (No we are not going to teach a course in economics)
If this bill becomes law, these criminals won't have to pay taxes, and can
start demanding welfare, medical and social security. All these welfare
systems are on life support now. With an additional 12-20 million? Collapse
in 5 years.
Oh it gets better. The people they want to bring in generally don't speak
much or any English and have no desire to learn. They have no skills, and to
many of them are illiterate in any language. In other words, a drain on
Now before people start screaming that Anger Central is "Anti-immigration",
remember that the Webmaster went through the process with his wife. There is
nothing at all wrong with legal immigration. It is what built this nation
and will continue to do so. We have nothing but respect for those who go
through the process to come here.
We know that these fine people generally want to assimilate as best they
can. They try to learn English. They work hard to make a better life for
themselves and their families. More power to them.
The immigration system does need a complete overhaul. It is beyond an
reformation. Blow it up and start all over again. People need to know just
what they can expect, what is required of them and how they can move
forward. Right now, the U.S. immigrations system provides none of that.
So, first secure the borders. Second, deport every person in this country
illegally. Don't waste time with courts and holding areas. Just ship them
out and send the bill to their countries. Third, go after these business
that knowingly hire illegal aliens. If you find five people working
illegally out of a company that has 5000 employees, they slipped through the
cracks. If you have 200 illegal's out of a work force of 500, the managers,
directors, owners, whoever, need to go to jail.
If you think this won't affect you, think about that job you are looking at.
Now think about you not getting it and instead the job being given to one of
these amnestied criminals who will work for 1/3 what you are willing to work
for. So you think that won't happen? It already is.
Enough of our rants. We will work to prevent this abomination from being
passed. We will do all that we can to get the so called "Representatives" in
congress to pull the plug. And every one of them that supports this trash?
Vote them out!

Today is Memorial day in the United States. This is the day we remember
all those who have died in the service of their country. Please remember the
high price soldiers pay so that some of you can make complete asses of
In other news, Mrs. Webmaster is a might peeved at her husband. He went out
and bought some new phones for the house. He got a good deal, but spending
more then $10 is "To Expensive! Don't Buy!" in her mind. The Webmaster
didn't tell her how much the new 22" wide screen LCD monitor cost. <wink>
In other news, the Webmaster is progressing nicely through his MCSA classes.
He has purchased a series of practice tests that should help him get through
the certification tests he will take in a month or so. Keep your fingers
May 19, 2007
Well the Webmaster is having fun. He took a minor spill yesterday while
moving Mrs. Webmaster's car and managed to twist his ankle. Not to bad, but
he was also called upon to run all over his real world job's building
tracking down data for a bunch of moves. Funny thing...It isn't his job!
However his manager got roped into it, so off he limped on his appointed
Meanwhile, Mrs. Webmaster called her husband from her job. She had a flat
The Webmaster long ago signed up with AAA so that wasn't a problem. The
problem is Mrs. Webmaster isn't comfortable talking on the phone with
The Webmaster went to her job, (10 minutes from his job), and took a look at
the tire. There was a nice, shiny roofing nail stuck in it. He then checked
her spare tire. It looked like it hadn't been removed from the car since it
was first put in there. *sigh*
"Hello, Triple A? I need someone to fix this please."
AAA told the Webmaster that the car would be towed to the nearest garage to
get the tire fixed. The happy couple lucked out. The operator had a patch
kit and was able to put a plug into the tire. Mrs. Webmaster went on her
happy way. :)
We like AAA. :)

Happy Mothers Day! Now is the day to be nice to your mothers...for once
in your lives. ;)
As we reported last week, Mrs. Webmaster was trying to get a new job. She
was called in for an interview, and the manager liked her. However the
assistant manager, (Or "Chef" as Mrs. Webmaster referred to him), didn't
like her. He stated that he didn't think her English skills were good
enough. Mrs. Webmaster's English isn't great, but it is functional. (Hell,
she aced the written part of her driving license last year) Also she tends
to lose her English a bit when she is extremely nervous, such as going to a
The Webmaster contacted the manager and thanked him for his time. He was
good enough to reply and said he was happy to meet Mrs. Webmaster and that
when she feels that her English is better, to call him and try again. We
will keep that in mind.
As we reported last month, we had a Northeaster come through and damage the
Data Center. We have been getting estimates for repairs and it looks like
it's going to be close to $500. GAAAAK! Oh well, we'll just have to fork
that over. :(
May 6, 2007
The Anger Central housing complex is being visited by a city tax assessor.
Oh joy, oh whoopee. Of course, since they are city workers, they want to
make it the responsibility of the home owner to be available when it is
convenient for the tax assessor. Oh gee golly wilikers Mr. Taxman, we sure
would be happy to assist you in sending our taxes skyrocketing into
Mrs. Webmaster will be available that day, which could work out nicely. If
the assessor starts asking her questions, she will suddenly forget how to
speak English. ;)
Speaking of Mrs. Webmaster, as we noted previously, the Webmaster put a job
application in for her. He heard back from the hiring manager, He was not
able to reach Mrs. Webmaster due to a busy signal. We recommended that he
try again on Mrs. Webmaster's day off. We also told him the phone might be
off the hook. (It was, and glued to Mrs. Webmaster's ear) With luck they
will connect and Mrs. Webmaster will have a new job. :)
Also, Mrs. Webmaster was called by her family in China. Her mother had a
fall and has broken her leg. Not good. The Webmaster has offered to arrange
a plane ticket back to China, but Mrs. Webmaster has decided to wait a bit
and see what's happening first. The cost was also part of the equation, even
though the Webmaster told her that wouldn't be a problem.
In other news, the Webmaster has another
editorial up. This one was originally written by Michelle Malkin in
reference to a group of Muslim Imam's that got tossed of an airliner last
fall. They thought it would be great fun to act like terrorists and be nice
and suspicious. The passengers and crew weren't about to take any chances
and had these bozo's removed from the plane. Now they are suing everybody
for having their "civil rights" violated.
Oh Boo F*****g Hoo!
Please read this editorial, titled "I
am John Doe", and pass it along. We had meant to do this some time ago
but hadn't gotten around to it yet. Better late then never we say. :)
So, stay anger and keep those rants coming in!
April 28, 2007
We're sorry there was no update last week, but basically nothing came
in. Also the Webmaster has been extremely busy in real life. He has started
his new classes and will be dealing with those for most of the summer.
About 2 weeks ago there was a rather big storm here at the Anger Central
corporate offices. We suffered some damage, and have been looking into
repairs. Nothing major, just annoying. Still, we have to get this done and
we're not looking forward to the bill.
Last week the Webmaster sent in a job application for Mrs. Webmaster at his
place of work in the real world. She would be working in a different area,
(Food services), but the job would pay better, have benefits and far better
hours then the place she is at now. We haven't heard back yet and we aren't
holding our collective breathes.
We have also been watching our loyal and patriotic democrat run congress try
to figure out the fastest way possible to surrender to Al Qeda. The founders
of our great nation must be spinning so fast in their graves that the Earth
is in danger of going off its axis. There is a word for what these "Leaders"
of our nation are doing. That word is
President Spineless NoBalls has decided to go fishing since his reelection.
There is sufficient grounds to have at least a half dozen members, both the
house and senate, in the public record to have them charged. Will President
Milquetoast actually do this? Hell no!
We have the leader of the U.S. Senate saying that we have lost the war and
should run away. He refuses to look at reports or speak with people who can
show him just the opposite. We have the Speaker of the House negotiating
with a terrorist state in violation of the
Logan Act and not being arrested as soon as she steps off the plane.
We here at Anger Central hope that President Wimpy Jr. wakes up and actually
starts doing his job before it's to late. We are not hopeful. All we can say
is, at least he doesn't want to surrender, unlike the new holders of the
title "Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey's", better known as the Democrats.
April 15, 2007
Happy Tax Day! In the United States, it is that time of year when the
shake down artists known as the United States Government demands its annual
tribute. Anger Central filed their tax returns a few months ago, since we
knew they were getting money back. (In other words, we overpaid our taxes
For those who may not know, the U.S. tax code is slightly more complicated
then the mathematics for Planck's Constant. If you are a true masochist,
feel free to read our wonderful tax laws so thoughtfully created by our
highly skilled and ever so considerate Congress.
U.S. Tax Code Online
The Webmaster received an emailed rant this week. Per out policy he
replied and explained that posting it would end all anonymity for the
poster. We didn't put it up of course. It seems some people may be having
problems with the add form. We are looking into it, but since the Webmaster
isn't a .PHP coder, he's having problems determining the problem. One thing
to remember, after writing up an extensive rant, go into the main entry
field, select all the text and copy it into memory. This way if you have a
problem you won't lose that rant you just did.
The Webmaster will be donning his propeller topped beanie and returning to
the Halls of Academia this week. He is going back to school to update his
technical skills. These are night classes he will be taking twice a week
after he completes his real world work day. These classes should go through
most of the summer. Feel free to head into the
Anger Central Company Store
and purchasing a few items, or just using the Tip jars liberally spread
throughout this site. These classes are expensive!

Happy Birthday Mrs. Webmaster!!
Today Mrs. Webmaster has her <Say and I hurt you husband!> birthday.
The Webmaster bought her a couple of stuffed animals and gave her a birthday
card with her most favorite gift. CA$H! For someone who grew up in a
communist country, Mrs. Webmaster is very capitalistic.
In any case, Mrs. Webmaster liked the little plushy's she got. She really
liked the stuffed moose. (She also got a stuffed lobster as well) The real
bummer is she has to work today.
Speaking of which, the Webmaster is looking at getting Mrs. Webmaster a job
where he works, probably in the mail room. It would be a much better job for
her and she seems to like the idea. The Webmaster just needs to find a
contact and talk to the manager of that department.
And to all, Happy Easter! The Webmaster is now off to annoy PETA by eating
Tasty Animals. ;)

Nope, no April fools jokes like "This site has been taken down by order
of RIAA" or something to that effect. That's been done in the past and
was lame the first time. No, a good April Fools joke does no harm can be
laughed at by all, does no damage and can be cleaned up in minutes.
One such joke pulled by the Webmaster, (Not on 04/01, that is amateur day as
far as he is concerned) consisted of taking a coworkers office and turning
it into a murder scene, down to the chalked outline of a body, police crime
scene tape and blood stains on the floor. That one took the better part of
an hour to set up, but was cleaned up in 5 minutes. The "Victim" of the joke
Of course that "Victim" was such an inviting target that the Webmaster
bagged him several times. It finally reached the point of total paranoia for
the "Victim." That was the just what the Webmaster was waiting for. The poor
victim went on a trip. He called in to the office to see how things were
going. The Webmaster had arranged it so that every single person the victim
spoke to would always finish the call with "Don't worry about your office.
Nothing has been touched. Absolutely nothing at all."
After the 5th call from the victim to his coworkers, he had become so
paranoid that when he returned, rather then go home he went to the
office....at 11PM. ;)
And what did he find when he got there you ask? Well, as promised nothing
had been disturbed in his office. In fact the Webmaster had placed signs on
everything in the victim's office attesting to this fact. Things like "This
computer has in no way been altered." and "This chair has not been touched
or rigged to collapse." and so on and so forth.
What was amazing was that the victim admitted that he came in to the office
that late. He told everyone later on that he remembered the last few events
and was terrified of what he would find this time. (Each joke was more
involved and complicated then the last)
So, that is the way to do a good joke. Pick a target and patiently drive him
March 25, 2007
The Webmaster was just thinking about things lately,
(OH HELL! Here we go again! Someone cut his LAN connection
quick!) Nice try guys, but I've got multiple redundant
Anyway, It looks like someone shoved a stack of carbon offsets down Gorbots
throat this week. As is normally the case, it was freezing cold and snowing
when he was giving his propagandistic pseudo-religious screed to Congress.
As soon as he quieted down, the temperatures shot up, the snow melted and
the Webmaster saw his first Ice Cream truck rumbling around town. It was a
near perfect day around the Data Center yesterday. Not a cloud in the sky.
However, when the Webmaster woke up this morning and looked outside, he saw
more snow on the ground. He hasn't checked the news yet, but he was
wondering if someone had ripped of the duct tape that had recently been
applied to the Gorebot's vocal orifice?
Again it has been a very light posting week. Only one post came in. So
disappointing! We suspect that our little site is being blocked in some way
by assorted filtering applications. We know it is at the Webmaster's present
place of employment. Disappointing, but understandable. Also we do not think
this site is appropriate for children and small animals. No doubt that is
another reason it's being blocked.
The Webmaster's new Real World job is going well, however he never thought
he would be spending so much time under desks. His title is Disaster
Recovery Analyst. (DR Analyst? How the hell did you get
that job? You don't prevent disasters, you cause them! The Angry Sysadmin)
No comments from the peanut gallery! Don't forget who pays
the bills around here.
As the Webmaster was saying before he was so rudely interrupted by his
flunkies, (That's staff you egomaniacal chimpanzee!),
Just ignore them people. I'll put them back in their boxes
later on. Anyway, The Webmaster is looking into a Virtual Machine system for
Disaster Recovery purposes. His new manager, a very competent person who
does know his way around a computer, apparently hadn't looked into VM's for
DR purposes. Not surprising, since he is really overworked, and VM's have
only come back in the last couple of years.
One of the problems will be the internal politics of his new company. The
Webmaster thinks he has an idea on how to short circuit that issue. He needs
to speak with others at his level, (The bottom), from the different groups
and get them interested in the idea. Then put together a small test
environment along with a well written proposal. Then he needs to bring his
new manager in, then they can gently nudge the idea up the ladder. The big
thing of course is once this is up and running, costs of DR plummet since
you don't need to keep identical hardware running.
If the Webmaster does this right, he will cover his manager in glory as well
as make himself look good as well. As the Webmaster has been explaining to
his compatriots, "Our job is to make sure everything goes well, figure out
how to do things more efficiently, save money, and make our boss look good."
Hopefully we will succeed in all our endeavors.
Until later, keep those rants coming!!
The Angry Webmaster
March 18, 2007
The Webmaster successfully navigated to the other site last week. Now he
gets to do it again this week. The nature of his job requires that he make
this journey several times a month. Oh well he gets mileage and overtime. :)
As was reported in this august web site, the Angrymobile was acting up last
week. The Angry Mechanic determined it needed a tune up. $335 later and it's
running like a top.
The Angry Statistician has noticed that postings and visits to our little
rant site seem to have dropped off in the last month or so. We aren't sure
why. There are many possible reasons, but we aren't going to worry about it.
This is just something we do here for fun and what little profit we can get
from Amazon.com. :)
The Webmaster has been looking into the reason why the captcha image is so
small on the add page. We went to the site we got it from and haven't seen
anything on the forums yet. If you have trouble reading it just refresh the
page and a new code will come up.
And finally, will someone please tell Al Gore to put a sock in it? Every
time that hypocritical loudmouth starts ranting and raving about global
warming, he sucks the heat out of the atmosphere and causes major snow and
ice storms or large drops in the temperature. The Angry facilities manager
has been complaining about the heating bill and having to hire someone to
plow out the parking area after the last snow storm we just had.
March 11, 2007
The Webmaster has completed his first week at his new job. Whew! So much
to learn! He is slowly getting his feet under him, and should be ok in a
month or so. Meanwhile he has to go to another city for a day next week.
This is another site for the company he is with now. There is a small
problem or two. First, he has no idea where it is.
No problem! He planned to drive down yesterday with the Angry Applications
manager who knows the city well. The only problem? The Webmaster's
Angrymobile decided to have engine problems. They had to turn back. It isn't
serious, (We hope!), however we won't know the issue until the Angry
Mechanic takes a look at it. We suspect it need a tune up. The Angrymobile
is about due for one.
In any case the Webmaster will be borrowing a car to take the trip down this
weekend to scout out the location. He has his GPS, maps, directions,
bloodhound, mirror, two hands and a compass. At the very least he should be
able to locate his a**! ;)
Which brings us to something we need to consider. It may be time to replace
the Angrymobile. It is 7 years old and has over 100K miles on it. The
Webmaster was doing some online shopping yesterday and found that Jeep
Liberty's have a deal running through the end of the month. He is also
looking at Ford Rangers. 4x4 drive is a must of course. The pickup is
attractive since the Webmaster is finding that he has a lot of things to
carry that won't fit into the present Angrymobile. Of course we really don't
want to spend that kind of money right now but it looks like we may not have
a choice. However, feel free to peruse the Anger Central Company Store and
spend money. Or, you could just donate directly to us. Every penny helps!
In other news...
It appears we have a small issue with the CAPTCHA image on the add page.
Small being the operative word. We don't know why it has become so tiny all
of a sudden, but we are looking into it. Additionally, if you blow the code
and have to go back, copy your text, (Just to be safe), and refresh the
page. This will generate a new code for you to enter. We will see what we
can do to correct the size issue.
February 25. 2007
A very quiet week here at Anger Central. Only three postings came in. We
suspect that this is due tp the no robots file we have loaded into the site.
We did this for the time being to protect the owner of Anger Central from
Google searches by potential employers.
It was rather surprising when the owner did a search and his name came up
attached to the main page, especially since his name appears no where on
this site. That was when the Angry Sysadmin decided it was time to block the
searchbots for a while.
In other news, the Webmaster has a JOB INTERVIEW!!! WooHoo! He will be going
to a company near the Data Center on the 26th. Needless to say the Webmaster
isn't holding his breath. While he will do his best to make a good
impression, he has never been good at interviews.
The job is another contract position. It should be good until the end of the
year and may be extended. It might also result in a permanent position down
the road....Probably for the actual winner of the job. :/
The company? We aren't going to say for obvious reasons. Suffice to say that
it has never been listed here, which is surprising. We will keep you
informed of course.
February 18, 2007
Well now, has it been two years already? Why, yes it has! What are we
talking about you ask? The second anniversary of Mr. & Mrs. Webmasters
wedding is February 19th. YAY them! :)
The staff has been informed that they happy couple plan on dining out on
lobster and other expensive items. Feel free to donate generously as someone
who wishes to remain anonymous did last week.
In other news, no job yet for the Webmaster although he has had a few
feelers. With luck we may have a nice little announcement next week. The
Webmaster isn't holding his breath. He's been down this road way to many
times to count his chickens before the eggs have been laid.
Also don't forget the Anger Central server will be offline for a bit on the
24th. See below for details.
February 15, 2007
Anger Central will be offline for a period of 2-5 hours Saturday Feb the
24th, starting at around 11:30pm EDT. During this period we will moving
servers to a new state-of-the-art data center housing unit which data
center. This will require the physical movement of all servers and networks
affected. During this period our Web site will not be available. In addition
email to Angry.net will not be processed through or received.
Thank you for your patience, and please, visit our store and buy cool stuff.
February 11, 2007
Another week of "If the phone doesn't ring, you'll know it's a potential
employer." This is getting really tiring. Oh well, all we can do is have the
Angry HR manager continue sending out Resume's on the Webmasters behalf.
In other news...
It's almost Valentine's day. That will be the 4th anniversary of Mr. & Mrs.
Webmaster's first meeting in Beijing. Five days later will be the happy
couple's second wedding anniversary. We have been informed that they are
planning a night of lobster devouring. Feel free to send them wedding
presents in the guise of cash. ;)
This week also saw the announcement of the death of Microsoft Clippy. Here
is the obituary along with the Angry Systems Administrators comments:
It is with great sadness, (Yeehaw!), that we announce the demise of
(It's about F***** Time! Break out the beer boys!)
Clippy had not been well for several years, and with the release of Office
XP had to be coaxed out of his bed.
(Ya mean you finally got the message after people kept throwing monitors at
that idiot Gates don't you?)
We know that Clippy and his helpful friends will be missed by our loyal
users of Microsoft Office,
(Sure. I'll also miss having a proctologic exam twice a week too)
We ask that you bow your heads and give a moment of silence in memory of
(F*** That! I'm going to have a party! Yeehaw! *BLAM* *BLAM*)
Thank you from the Microsoft Marketing department
(Oh it's you guys again! Ya'll just stand right there now while I reprogram
this here cruise missile. I'm sure the Iranians won't miss it)
As you can see the Angry Systems Administrator isn't overly broken up with
regards to the demise of Clippy. ;)
February 3. 2007
We are still looking to find gainful employment for the Webmaster. He is
most unhappy. Mrs. Webmaster thinks it should take no more then a week for
him to find a new job. While we agree with Mrs. Webmaster, the jobs he would
like are far away from the Anger Central Data Center.
The Webmaster has been offered a few jobs, but they really weren't a good
fit. He isn't interested in working third shift or being paid less then a
fry cook at McDonalds.
On the flip side, the Webmaster did stumble across a job that was very
interesting...Just not for him. He heard that a number of people were let go
from his old job including a director. He sent the job off to one of his
former co-workers who sent it off to the now former director. He was very
grateful to see it and will be applying for it. We hope he gets the job.
While the Webmaster didn't report to the director, he did support the
director and his group. He was a fair manager who got a raw deal, (Like
almost everyone else at that site). The Webmaster did offer his support as a
reference, and if called the Webmaster will sing his praises. Who knows?
Perhaps he will find something for the Webmaster. ;)
January 26, 2007
Sigh, the Webmaster is gainfully unemployed again. Such is the lot of a
contractor. In this case the project was finished and there was nothing else
available so he and two others were bid a sad farewell. It's possible he
will be called back in a few weeks, but the Webmaster can't count on that.
Unlike his last company, the managers at this company actually treated their
In any case, it's back to the job sites. If anyone knows of a server
admin/network admin opening in Northern Massachusetts or preferably southern
New Hampshire drop us a line via the add page.
January 21, 2007
Now this was fun. Mrs. Webmaster brought in the laptop the Webmaster bought
a few weeks ago. This was for a friend of Mrs. Webmaster. It seems the
friend was having some problems with the webcam and a few minor things. "No
Problem!" the Webmaster said. "Bring it in and I'll take a look at it."
Well he did and the first major problem was Windows XP. Now never mind the
snide remarks. In this case, the friend had another friend load Windows XP
Pro, (Which the friend had a license for), on the laptop. The problem is, it
was the Chinese version! The Webmaster can't read Chinese. The second
problem was, this was a bootlegged copy. This means no updates. Not good!
The Webmaster did what he could, but recommended in very strong terms that
Mrs. Webmaster's friend contact Microsoft and look into getting a licensed
copy of Chinese Windows XP. From what we have heard, it shouldn't be a
problem. It will either be a small cost or no cost at all.
The other thing that could be done is load Linux on the system. :)
Not our call of course. We got everything working as well as we could and it
all seems to be good. The first thing we did was load an anti-virus
application on the system. That should help a bit.
In other news, our retirement is still growing. It looks like no one has won
the lottery and our take when we win will be $250 million or so. ;)
January 14, 2007
Hmm, looks like the Anger Central Retirement Fund didn't come through
last night. In other words, we didn't win powerball. ;)
To all our posters, did you know that the latest version of Firefox has a
built in spell checker? No? It does and you should really go and download
it. Doing so would make life so much easier for the Webmaster when he's
doing up the weekly rants. It takes a long time to go through Spell-check on
FrontPage. You can download it from the links on the main page.
The Webmaster has been applying for positions all over the place. It would
be nice if some of these companies would at least call and interview him. We
won't bother going into recruiters. :/
We're still waiting for Angry Wife #200. It's been two weeks since the start
of the new year and no one has posted about how angry they are towards their
husbands. We guess that they are all to busy arranging their divorces.
January 7, 2007
Hello there Angry People! Another year has started. We have been doing
some checking on the posts this year and we are a bit disappointed. We
received thousands of postings, however only 617 were worth anything. Come
on people! We know you can do better then that!
One of the problems that caused so many to be discarded was that most of the
posts were just people insulting other people. Some of those did make it up,
but most went into the bit bucket.
Another little statistic was husbands. We had to add a new page last year
when we went over 100 postings on Husbands 1.
We created a second page, and towards the end of last year it started coming
up on post number 200. Sad to say we didn't reach that magic mark. We came
in at 199 for the year. No doubt we will see the 200th posing in
the next few weeks. We find it amazing that so many women are angry at their
husbands. On the flip side, we only have 13 posting about husbands angry at
their wives. Hmmm. makes one think, no?
We have also posted a new Rant from the Angry Webmaster. We haven't put one
of those up for a long time. To be honest, he forgot the page was there. ;)
Normally, web sites like to crow about how many people visited their site.
We don't bother keeping those statistics. Part of it is that it's
meaningless. The other part is protecting posters anonymity. As long as
people give us money or buy things through the
Anger Central Company Store,
we're happy. :)
So, stay angry, and rather then shooting up the streets or something, post
here when you're mad. It's a lot better and won't cause injury, death or
January 1, 2007
And another year has gone by in the saga of Anger Central. Angry.net is
now 8 years old although the basic site is closer to 10 years old now.
This has been one of our more eventful years to say the least! The Webmaster
lost his real world job with a company he had been with for almost 8 years.
The termination was politically motivated by people who basically ran the
corporate IT department into the ground and treated people like the
Webmaster like something to be scraped off their shoes. Revenge is sweet
though. Two of the three people responsible for his unemployment were forced
out, the company its self just restated their earnings and the profits they
claimed over the last few years suddenly disappeared. A grand jury is
investigating them and with a little luck everyone will go to jail. :)
The Webmaster also heard that his last co-worker from the old job left for a
new one as of the first of the year. Way to go Matt! Just don't forget us
little people. :)
He was the last of the original IT people from the company the Webmaster
originally signed on with, one sale and two mergers ago. Now the only person
left at that site is a contractor and he probably will leave soon enough.
Are we bitter? Of course we are! <grin>
In other news, the Webmaster had a stroke this year. He was very lucky
nothing permanent was done and was able to return to work within a few days.
It was a very scary situation though. Fortunately the Webmaster bought
health insurance and was covered for this incident.
Mrs. Webmaster finally got her green card this spring, and also passed her
drivers test...on the fourth try. She then returned to China to visit her
family leaving the Webmaster all alone for the summer. He was very sad about
this. Upon her triumphant return in September, Mrs. Webmaster scored herself
a free car and landed a job. The Webmaster doesn't approve of the job, but
it does allow Mrs. Webmaster a chance to get out of the house and earn
money. She will probably get another job in a couple of months with
her friend Shuhua, who is now returning from that island in the Pacific. Oh
boy! The terrifying twosome riding around in Mrs. Webmaster's reject from
rent a wreck! Now there is a scary thought!
We have reopened the Anger
Central Company Store with cool things from Amazon.com. Please go there
and spend money. we are desperately poor and need all the cash we can get.
So, what are the plans for the New Year? Well the Webmaster is going back to
school and update his skills and get some certifications. He knows most of
what they will teach, but needs to get the paper to prove it to potential
employers. We hope to move to a new job this year, sooner rather then later.
What he is doing now isn't what he is trained for and isn't all that
challenging. He works with nice people, but this contracting stuff is for
So, thanks for coming by and we'll keep posting your rage.
The gang here at Anger Central.
