And now, a word from the Angry Sysadmin:
MAJOR SERVER UPGRADE SCHEDULED FOR JAN 9-11th:
: We will be totally
upgrading this server starting the evening of January 9th.
Please plan on avoiding any site updates the 9th and 10th as
we copy files.
This upgrade will completely redo the server, disks and
processor and triple the speed of the server. We expect NO
outage during this, but make sure to take note of the dates.
Now that the housekeeping is done...
This will be the last posting of 2008. It has been a very
rough year for Anger Central. The Webmaster was out of work
from Dec. 28, 2007 until Nov. 20, 2008. As some of you know,
being out this long is very scary. The Webmaster has been
out this long only once before, and that was 10 years ago.
The management was concerned that the Webmaster might have
lost his house and we may have had to shutter this site.
Hopefully the new job will work out.
In the last year we have put up 622 rants. We received well
over 3000. (We don't keep count of the ones we don't post,
we just delete them) We've done some site reorganization and
We also had been using Google Adsense until they decided to
accuse Anger Central of Click Fraud. We have since found a
much better company called
Chitika. They are based nearby and we recommend them
heartily. For those of you using the Evil Empire's ad
system, (Better known as Google Adsense), they have a tie in
with that as well.
We started using
to announce our recent updates and general news. We have 40
people following us. Several of them are politicians, so no
doubt they do get an earful. ;)
Mrs. Webmaster went back to China for a few months last
spring. She returned to the loving arms of the Webmaster in
early summer. Mrs. Webmaster is now waiting on the tender
mercies of the USCIS and it's cast of clowns. The couple put
in the paperwork for Mrs. Webmaster's Removal of Conditions,
(The 10 year card) last January. According to the USCIS web
site they are processing people who submitted last December.
We also had an anointment...err election this year that was
historic for several reasons. First a man of African decent
was elected to the office of President of the United States.
Second, an absolutely unqualified egomaniac from one of the
most corrupt cities in America was elected to the office of
President of the United States.
The Mainly Stupid Media, more commonly known as the Main
Stream Media, did everything it could to destroy a fine
woman running for Vice-President while covering up the
complete ineptitude of the now President-Elect. The betting
pool is now open on when the New York Times folds its tent
So, what's in store for Anger Central in the coming year? We
don't have a *expletive deleted* clue! For the time being
we'll just keep posting and commenting on the coming
economic crash caused by our wonderfully competent new
President and Congress. We have no doubt those nitwits will
provide much fodder for Anger Central.
So to all our fans and posters, Have a great and successful
New Year and Stay Angry!!
- December 21, 2008
First a little housekeeping news. The hosting
company Anger Central uses has announced: We will be
upgrading this server the first week of January 2009.
Seems they noticed a few issues with the servers and are
basically swapping them out. We have full backups and we're
ready if need be.
Will someone please tell the acolytes of the Church of
Global Warming to SHUT UP! We have 12" of Global warming on
the ground now and as the Webmaster types this, more is
coming down. The Angry Groundskeeper is NOT looking forward
to clearing out the Anger Central primary dwelling.
And then there is Mrs. Webmaster's need to travel to work.
She works a good ten+ miles away and will be driving into
the teeth of the storm. She's going to call her boss and see
if she has to go in. We hope not. At least this boss is much
nicer then the Queen Dragon Lady Mrs. Webmaster used to work
Meanwhile, here're a few items you can buy. It might be to
late for Christmas, "Bah! HUMBUG!!", but for New Years they
will be great. Something for the kids and something for the
And speaking of Bah Humbug! Our favorite Holiday Grinch has
posted his annual rant
about Christmas. ;)
So, until next time, or next year, Enjoy the season, for it
is one that people should be angry at!
- December 14, 2008
The new job is moving along well. The Webmaster is
learning how things work. Tomorrow he is supposed to
interview someone for a position at his job. Needless to
say, this will be a first! The Webmaster is usually the
interviewee, not the interviewer. Also the job is for a
programmer and the Webmaster is a hardware person and
frankly, can't program his way out of a wet paper bag. Well
he will muddle through somehow.
We had an ice storm last week. The Anger Central primary
domicile along with the data center remained online,
although the Angry Parents lost their power. After 24 hours
on their generator the Really angry Father said "That's it!
We're going to a hotel!" The only problem was the nearest
one that had rooms was in Woburn MA. :/
The Webmaster is toying with the idea of another blog entry
regarding the fiasco known as the United Auto Workers Bail
Out Bill, more commonly known as the Auto industry bailout.
What part of the word "NO!" that the majority of people are
saying to their alleged reps do they not comprehend? More on
The quality of the rants was low this week. This makes us
sad. A bit to much whining and not enough rage there people!
We know you can do better then that!
Until next time, Stay Angry!
- December 7, 2008
67 years ago today, the Imperial Japanese fleet launched
353 aircraft against the United States naval base at Pearl
harbor, Hawaii. The attack destroyed or damaged every
battleship the United States had in the Pacific, killed
2400+ soldiers, sailors and airmen and launched America into
World War 2. Please take a moment to remember this day.
The Webmaster is getting his feet under him at his new job.
Unfortunately the company had some layoffs and one person in
the office was released along with another in the main
office who was teaching the webmaster how to do his job.
This makes life a bit difficult. The funny things is, there
are two openings that are in the process of being filled in
the Webmaster's office.
Friday a developer managed to infect his system with a
virus. The Webmaster spent 3 hours trying to scrub the
system without success. The Webmaster notified his boss and
asked how he wanted our hero to proceed. Desktop support is
not the webmasters job. He will find out Monday.
All in all it has been a slow week here on Anger Central.
Not many people showed up nor were any ads viewed/clicked
on. (Please do click on them and by things. Make our
sponsors happy!) We would at least like to make enough to
cover our hosting charges.
In any case, until next time, Stay Angry!
- November 29, 2008
The Webmaster has received his first paycheck! He is so
excited over being gainfully employed now. The job is tough
and there's a lot to learn. It's sort of a "sink or swim"
situation. Still the Webmaster is going ahead full bore.
Thanksgiving was this week, and we hope you all overindulged
in massive amounts of turkey. Mrs. Webmaster is not fond of
turkey unfortunately, although she has been preparing one
for herself in her own unique way. ;)
We've been looking into our
Chitika ads. No one has signed up for advertising space
on Anger Central. No matter, we still run ads from
Chitika's client base. Of course we could also use
Google Adsense...Oh wait! No we can't! *grumble*
We also received a few rants regarding terrorism, no doubt
due to what happened in India. They appear to be from the
same person and we chose the best one to go online. The
Webmaster is considering writing something about that in the
blogspace, but no decision has been made in that regard.
The Webmaster has been buying books on Amazon again. We're
recommending the following items this week:
We hope you'll like them. As you can see the Webmaster tends
towards SciFi and Adventure books and movies.
Until later, Stay angry!
- November 23, 2008
Well, the first two days of gainful employment have
passed. Talk about tough! There's a lot the Webmaster needs
to get his head around, and he also has been assigned some
projects. The only issue is, he doesn't know enough to ask
the correct questions. Still he is muddling through.
Besides the usual business of learning the job, he's also
been working with the HR department to get his pay and
benefits, (Now there's a nice word), all set up. The
Webmaster had to fill out at least 20 pages of documents,
scan them in and then email them down along with snail
mailing a hard copy. Fun Fun!
Still it's good to be working.
- November 16, 2008
The Webmaster will be starting at his new job Thursday
November 20th with an established start up. Much
as we hate to say it, the new administration could prove to
be a boon to this company. Postings might drop off a bit as
the Webmaster gets settled in and learns how things work.
The Webmaster has been toying with setting up a dedicated
blog here. Mostly he has been posting his musings and
comments in the news section. With the new administration
providing such a target rich environment regarding policies
and idiocies, the Webmaster feels that he can't do real
justice posting his noise on the news page or the main page.
The section isn't ready yet, but if you want to explore it,
follow the link to the Blog.
Since the Webmaster doesn't like to hear from the peanut
gallery, there will be no comments section. ;)
We're also redoing the links page. Basically we're
tightening it up and cleaning out dead links.
Until next time, Stay angry!
- November 14, 2008
The Webmaster has just been made an offer!! Gainful
Employment has finally arrived. It has been a long and
frightening period for the Angry Webmaster. The Webmaster
went out at the end of last year after completing a contract
job. He expected to be employed again within a couple of
months. That didn't happen. The Angry Webmaster was out of
work for 11 months.
The position starts as a 90 day trial period. After that,
provided no issues with the Webmaster or his new employer
show up, he will be permanently hired as a full time
Mrs. Webmaster is happy. Her stress levels just washed away.
We will keep you up to date on how things go. Needless to
say, we will not name the company. ;)
- November 9, 2008
Well we might as well get it over with.
ALL HAIL THE ONE! THE ONE IS ALL! HAIL OBAMA! HAIL OBAMA!
We hope you enjoy the change from a free prosperous nation
to a socialist totalitarian one with a collapsed economy,
suppression of free speech and dissent, seizure of your 401K
and IRA accounts, etc.
Well that's over with. now on to other business.
The Webmaster had a job interview last week. It's an
interesting job with a start-up. It deals with energy. Lots
of potential. Pity the Webmaster didn't get warm and fuzzies
from the manager. He did contact the Webmaster late last
week and ask for references so we will see.
Another job the Webmaster is waiting on will involve
traveling a bit. Also a good job with a lot of potential. We
contacted the HR person and she said the manager is
shorthanded and is working like mad.
The Webmaster heard back on one of two contract jobs. Big
Fat NO! The other one, the HR person is ducking the
Webmaster so we are assuming he didn't get that job either.
We're also waiting to hear back from a third opening that
looks really good. The earliest the Webmaster expects to
hear anything is the middle of November.
Now some housekeeping.
We saw a number of postings come in that didn't come even
close to our TOS. The delete key got a major workout. Ladies
and gentlemen, please. We want to know why your are angry.
Don't bother responding to postings you see here. We don't
care if you feel insulted after reading about fat people or
dumb blondes. We must have trashed 15 postings last week.
The Angry Advertising manager has been playing around with
Chitika ads. We are now capable of taking ads directly.
Simple click on the "Advertise Here link on any ad and you
will be taken to the
Chitika site. You will be asked to set up an account.
Because this is a low trafficked site, (Damn it!) we are
keeping the rates low.
Chitika is a small company but it is growing. We think it is
superior to Google's Adsense. They are a heck of a lot more
personable and fairly quick to get back to you if you have a
Mrs. Webmaster has been suffering a headache for the last
week or so. It may be tied into her recent oral surgery.
We'll see if she wants to visit a doctor this week.
Mrs. Webmaster's sister, (Living in Tennessee), got her
drivers license this week. If you live down there LOOK OUT!
Like Mrs. Webmaster, she never drove a car before coming to
the United States. In fact, according to Mrs. Webmaster, her
sister only had to take a written test, not a road test. 8-O
Well, provided we haven't been shut down by The One,
we'll keep you up to date on Anger Central and the search
for gainful employment.
Until next time, stay angry!
- November 4, 2008
It's election day. Today the United States chooses it's
next president. It will either be the communist or the old
fart. No matter who you choose, vote! Just remember to
choose the Old Fart and everything will be fine. ;)
This has been a public service announcement from Anger
- November 1, 2008
It was a very busy week on the job search front for the
Angry Webmaster. He had 2 telephone screens and a face to
face interview. He also has an interview scheduled for next
week. The interview the Webmaster had last week didn't pan
out. He was rejected. Well at least they let him know which
is very much appreciated. Most of the time the Webmaster has
been left hanging.
The interview next week is for a really good permanent
position. The other phone screen is for another really good
position. No doubt none of them will pan out of course. :(
In really annoying news, the Webmaster just got a bill from
the local hospital. This wasn't for the recent trip to the
Emergency room spoken of below. Oh know, this was for a trip
that happened 2 YEARS AGO! Thanks to the
delay, the Webmaster is going to get royally screwed. He has
a $2500 deductible and the Webmaster paid that shortly after
the incident. (Covering doctors, ambulance, etc) The
remainder should have been covered by insurance. *grumble*
We'll have to figure out where we're going to get the money.
Speaking of money, The Webmaster got an email from someone
wanting to buy ads on Anger Central. We aren't set up to
handle ads directly, but the company we use,
Chitika.com is set up to do this. We have activated a
new section on the ads. If you wish to purchase ads on Anger
Central, simply go to the page you want the ads to appear on
and click on the "Advertise Here" link. You will be taken to
a page that will allow you to purchase ads. You will need to
set up an account with
Chitika.com. We would recommend that you do so. They are
smaller the Google's AdSense, but we think they are much
nicer people. :)
And finally, Next week is election week. Remember,
Republicans and independents voting for the whatshisface/PALIN!
ticket vote on Tuesday. Democrats and independents voting
for Comrade Obama/Retard Joe Biden ticket vote on Wednesday.
They have decided to split the voting days due to the
anticipation of a huge voter turnout. :)
For those of you in Massachusetts, vote YES on Question 1
and give yourself a pay hike.
Until Later, stay Angry!
- October 25, 2008
No word yet on the job interview we wrote about last
week. The Webmaster has a call in to his recruiter for more
information. We shall see.
Speaking of interviews, the Webmaster had another one
earlier this week. It was yet another contract job, but
there is a lot of learning potential in it. This one is only
for 3 months though and no chance of going permanent.
The Webmaster also got calls from two other companies he has
applied to. These are permanent positions. One involves
traveling about 25% of the time. We also have another phone
screen set up for the 28th. All the positions are
good ones and would advance the now stagnant career of the
Webmaster. Keep your fingers crossed!
Earlier this week, the Webmaster ended up in the Emergency
room at his local hospital. We won't go into details, but he
was in incredible pain. The problem cleared up in a few
hours and the Webmaster fully recovered. We are looking
forward to that hospital bill...NOT! No doubt it will be
below the Anger Central's Insurance plan's deductible. :/
We'll keep you informed on the Great Job Search and whether
any of these pan out.
Until next time, Stay Angry!
- October 19, 2008
Well, the Webmaster has gone on another job interview.
It's an OK job, but only a contract for 3-6 months. One of
the "Gotcha's" they didn't mention was the occasional
coverage of a plant 90 minutes+ from the Webmaster domicile.
Still it's a job and they will pay mileage. The bad news is
that the Webmaster doesn't think he's going to get it. The
manager asked the following question: Are you looking for a
long term position? The reason I ask is that we don't want
to train someone and then have them leave 2 weeks later."
Um, yup The Webmaster is. Well, so much for that job! The
Webmaster is unable to lie to a prospective employer. The
other fun thing is the manager is also new to the job,
having started there 2 weeks earlier.
While the Webmaster was driving down to the interview, he
was called by yet another recruiter. Obviously the Webmaster
couldn't talk while driving, (Although the Webmaster does
have a hands free system for his Cell phone), arrangements
were made for a discussion the next day. Emails were
exchanged and the call took place at...Oh wait! No call was
made after all!
Mrs. Webmaster is feeling much better and the swelling has
gone down. She is doing fine at her new part time job. The
restaurant is near the Angry Brother's home so she can
always go there if there is a problem.
Meanwhile the Angry Entertainment Director has taken
delivery of several new DVD's. We are going to be watching,
1) Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Two-Disc Special Edition)
2) Iron Man (Two-Disc Special Collectors' Edition)
3) Batman Begins (Two-Disc Special Edition)
We're going to spend the afternoon watching these after we
finish our updates.
We also heard from someone from the Land Down Under. Nice to
hear from long term fans. *waves*
Mrs. Webmaster commented when told about this that in China,
Kangaroos are considered the same as mice. Since Mrs.
Webmaster's name translates into "Don't bother telling me
what it really means, I'm right and that's that!" The
Webmaster just nodded and went "Yes Dear." ;D
And last but not least, we received a donation this week
from someone who has sent in a few ducets in the past. Last
time he asked to remain anonymous and we are assuming he
wishes to remain so again. We will send out a major league
thanks to him. We did notice one thing. Paypal took $0.88 as
a fee. When did they start that? We thought internal Paypal
transactions were free? The only reason we can see for the
fee is the donor used a credit card or bank transfer. If
not, DAMN PAYPAL!
Until next time, stay angry!
- October 12, 2008
The Angry Webmaster's "Extremely generous" unemployment
benefits have run out. Now the money really starts to flow
outwards from the bank accounts.
If you have been living in a cave, you probably aren't aware
of the stock market crash we are in the process of having.
The Webmaster's portfolio is so far underwater that it's
staying with the WW2 German U-boat fleet. We had been
counting on it to help alleviate some of our financial
issues. We were hurt, but there's still enough to tied us
over if we have to sell out. Hopefully we won't need to.
On the job front, the Webmaster put in for a position
Saturday morning at 6:30am EST. He was called by a recruiter
at 9AM. To say the Webmaster was surprised would be a slight
understatement. According to the headhunter, he had gotten
something like 40 resumes for the position, but none of them
had any experience in a manufacturing environment. The
phrase he used was "Techs working at Wal-Mart." He will be
putting it into the company Tuesday. We'll see how that
The Webmaster is also looking at going back for more
training on his own nickel. He and the Angry Brother In-Law
are looking at Cisco and getting CCNA certifications. That's
$4000 right there.
Last week, Mrs. Webmaster had her four wisdom teeth
extracted. The surgery went well and she is recovering. Mrs.
Webmaster is also doing some part time work for a restaurant
new the Angry Brother's home. Not handy, but it's about 20
hours or so a weekend.
Well that's it for this week. We'll keep you informed on the
job prospects, (Low thanks to the morons in Congress. That
means you Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Charles Schumer, etc!)
Do Anger Central a favor and click on the ad links and buy
stuff from Cafepress as well. If you have any ideas for
logos, artwork, etc for the Cafepress shop let us know. And
don't forget Amazon.com.
Until later, stay angry! :)
- October 5, 2008
Just a short note. The Webmaster had a "Meet & Greet"
with yet another recruiter. This was preliminary to a jobs
submission. Well, they sent the Webmaster's resume in to
<nameless company> and wouldn't tell the Webmaster what the
company name was. He found out when he went in for the waste
of time meeting. The recruiters told him that the company
had two resumes from the Webmaster. When he got home he
checked his records and found out another recruiter had
submitted. He has contacted that recruiter and he will be
withdrawing that resume. Hopefully this will get sorted out
and the Webmaster will have some chance of getting the job.
The <Nameless company> has been putting ads out with all the
recruiting firms as well as the jobs sites. None of the ads
are written the same so it's easy to make that mistake.
- September 28, 2008
If our fans have been living in a cave and don't know
what's going on, there is a bill to "bail out" the financial
sector. The bill is at *least* $700 billion dollars. The
staff of Anger Central has been polled and the results were
50/50. 50% said NO! and the other 50% said HELL NO!! The
current state of affairs can be laid right at the doorstep
of the Democratic Party, specifically Rep. Barney Frank,
(D-MA), Sen. Christopher Dodd, (D-CT) and Sen. Charles
Since 2001 the Bush Administration, useless as they may be
domestically, has been trying to clean up this disaster in
the making. They have been blocked at every turn by the
Democrats in general and those three in particular. These
three need to be removed from their committees to start with
and should resign from office.
They won't of course and in fact have been trying to play
games with this bill since day one. The overwhelming
majority of voters in the United States are against this
bailout, but the oligarchy in Washington won't listen. They
see this as their chance to completely crush the free market
in the U.S.
Who will be paying for this abortion? Go look in the mirror.
While we know that the Webmaster is one who will be badly
hurt in the coming economic crash, (We expect to lose the
house and possibly this site), we know that what is being
proposed will be far worse. If they jam this down our
throats, consider this the date that the United States died.
For to long the so called elected officials at all levels
have been looting the treasury to keep themselves in office.
Now the chickens are coming home to roost.
If you want to try and stop this disaster, call your
representatives in Washington. Jam the switchboards. Send
telegrams and email. Letters and postcards would be good,
but the speed these crooks are moving at, snail mail won't
get there in time.
If your senators and representatives vote for this stinking
pile of manure, and they are up for reelection, vote for
their opponent. At this point it doesn't matter who wins,
the people of this country are going to lose.
In other, non-political news, Mrs. Webmaster's best friend
has just moved to Virginia with her husband. We finally got
to meet him, and the Webmaster determined in 10 seconds that
politics would not be a good topic for discussion. (Flaming
Mrs. Webmaster's friend left her car with use for a while
until they get settled down there. The Webmaster heard two
things regarding the car recovery date. One was 3 weeks, the
other was sometime around Christmas. If the latter Mrs.
Webmaster said she will sell her friends car. ;)
Nothing new on the job search front. The Webmaster applied
to 5 openings on Friday and was called by a recruiter on yet
another one. We looked at it and told him to submit the
Webmaster's resume. We'll keep you up to date.
Until next time, Stay Angry!
(That won't be hard with this fiasco in Washington!)
- September 24, 2008
Well the Webmaster was called and told he wasn't getting
the contract position he interviewed for yesterday. It seems
they went with someone who had worked there in the past for
a longer period then the Webmaster. The Webmaster was their
second choice, so if the first choice doesn't work out, he
will be selected. :/
Other jobs the Webmaster is trying for have all been put on
hold. We were also rejected by another company without an
interview. Life is not good for the Webmaster. :(
- September 21, 2008
Well well, the Webmaster has an interview. He will be
meeting with another group at the company he was at last
year. It's a desktop support role and for less money, but
it's work. Yes, it's another contract, probably for about 6
months with a possibility of extension. We'll see.
The Webmaster is still hoping he will get a job with his
former manager's company. He's a VP now and he was one of
the few decent people the Webmaster worked for. No word yet.
We're looking to replace the feedburner RSS system. Since
they are owned by Google now, and they have killed the Anger
Central Adsense account, there's no reason to stay with
them. We're looking at other alternatives. (Money is good)
The other day we got a post from a raving 9/11 truther. We
thought about putting it up, but why bother. Besides, from
the way it was written the poster was either drunk or
stoned. (Possibly both)
Mrs. Webmaster's best friend is moving away again. This time
to Virginia. At least it's the same time zone. Last time she
moved she and her husband went to Saipan. Mrs. Webmaster has
been helping her pack up and last night she brought home a
load of food. We;; that takes care of the groceries for a
few weeks. ;)
We'll keep you up to date on the job front.
Until next time.

Not much to report at Anger Central> We're now adding
the new ads hosted by
Chitika.com. Click on them and buy stuff. We're also now
selling stuff through
as well. We're still working on the goodies there, (a
problem since the Webmaster has no artistic ability at all),
but we have some
As usual, no news on the job front. The unemployment runs
out in a few weeks and we really start hurting then. Mrs.
Webmaster needs some more dental work and that's going to
run into big bucks. (for those of you in love with single
payer government run health care, Mrs. Webmaster is a victim
We've been sending out resumes of course. Our estimate is
over 1000 since the Webmaster lost his job at <Company> in
2006. One of the things we're seeing now is the obscene
requirements for positions and the pay levels rivaling that
of a McDonalds hamburger flipper. If we don't get an income
soon, the Webmaster will have no choice but to sell the
primary residence before he can no longer pay the mortgage.
Needles to say, Anger Central may have to be shut down as
well since it costs us money to have it hosted.
Well, that's for the future. (Hopefully distant)
Until later, Stay Angry!

In Memory of those lost.
- September 9, 2008
Just a short note. We've started adding the new
Chitika ads. These are a bit louder then Google's
adsense, but this is a small company and are also fairly
local to Anger Central. So, throw
Chitika.com some business and help bury the evil empire
that is google!
We've also started adding a local search rather then the
Google search we were using. It's not as pretty, but it does
seem to work. If you find any issues drop a note to the

Well now, that was an interesting convention. The
Webmaster missed Gov. Palin's speech the other night, but
caught the replays. The Anger Central staff is now
energized. Previously we were giving serious thought to
sitting out this election for the first time. Now we have a
reason to go to the polls, and it ain't to pull the lever
The Democrats were caught completely flatfooted over this
choice by McCain. So much so that they are in a blind panic.
This can be observed by the flat out lies by the MSM,
(Mainly Stupid Media). They are simply regurgitating the
talking points of the Daily Kos and the Huffington post.
This is now an interesting and exciting race to the White
Speaking of Gov. Palin, we got our first rant aimed at her
direction. It isn't going up. The reason? All it does is
vomit forth the same MSM talking points that have already
been discredited. If you are angry about Sarah Palin, then
try to be original. We understand how hard it is for
Communists to do this, but try.
More news on the job front. No job yet. A lot of calls from
recruiters and we hope things are picking up. The Webmaster
is getting flat out scared now. We don't make any money from
this site, especially since the scumsucking maggot infested
dirtbags at Google Adsense disabled our account. We've set
up a new account with a new firm local to the Anger Central
The company is called Chitika.com. We'll see how it goes.
We're also looking at reactivating our cafepress store. We
never really did anything with it since we have no artistic
skills at all. (As the artwork on Anger Central proves)
Until next time, Stay Angry!
We were doing a little check on something and
found out that our wonderful friends at Google screwed up
our internal search system. Our guess is, it was tied into
their crooked Adsense system and when those hagged out
scumbuckets closed our account, it broke the search
mechanism. We've reverted to a basic one until we can find
something better. We've also started working with
Cafepress.com to create some Anger Central cool stuff.

Another month has gone by and no job for the Webmaster.
Panic has set in. Apprehension for the future has lessened
slightly thanks to John McCain actually listing to people
and choosing Sarah Palin as his running mate. We had been
giving serious thought to sitting this cycle out, and would
have crawled into a hole for 4 years if McCain had done
something really stupid and selected Joe Lieberman to be his
VP running mate. We dodges a bullet there!
As we said, no jobs for the Webmaster. One he had applied to
and was a very good fit went to an internal candidate. The
Webmaster never had a chance. Another headhunter contacted
our hero about a job he applied to. Back and forth, a
promise to call, then they ask if I had ever applied to this
company they represent before. The Webmaster checked his
records and sure enough, he had. So much for that job!
Anger Central studiously avoided watching the "I love Me"
Obama lovefest. He's still an empty suit and he's proving it
every day. His acceptance speech was a rehash of all his
other empty and vacuous speeches. Basically it was all show
Obama should have gotten at least a 10 point bounce out of
that fiasco. Nope. McCain stole his thunder. Perhaps the
U.S. will actually decide to not elect a terrorist
supporting communist stooge who wants to be the Robert
Mugabe of the United States.
As you might have noticed, Anger Central has taken a shine
to the Bullwinkle Blasting Babe, Mother of 5 and death on
corrupt pols from Alaska who will be our next VP. It's been
fun watching the Democrats caught so completely by surprise.
We can just see Hillary Clinton breaking in a new lamp...on
Bill Clinton's head. :D
Mrs. Webmaster has started looking around for a job. She
applied to a place at the local mall, She wants to serve
mall food. :)
- August 24, 2008
As is the standard around here, no calls for a job or an
interview. We do have one lead and we're hoping it pans out.
The Webmaster has been talking with this hiring manager for
several months now and finally a new position opened up the
webmaster would be a fit for.
If we get an interview, the Webmaster will also bring up
another opening he saw but didn't apply for. He can do about
60% of that job as well as the one he's trying for. That
would give the company some backup and a bit more depth to
their IT department. All we need is an interview and a
Some of you have been wondering why we haven't posted the
Webmaster's Resume/CV. We don't want a potential employer to
find out about this site just yet. The only way we will
mention it is if we are hired by a company that requires a
Mrs. Webmaster has been watching the Olympics of course,
rooting for the home teams. We were talking about the
gymnasts and how some of the Chinese girls seem to be a bit
on the young side. Mrs. Webmaster let slip that one of them
was 14 and very good for her age. Whoopsy! We do believe
that the minimum age is 16. :D
The new DVR is working fine. Different interface, but we are
getting used to it. Mrs. Webmaster was very happy when the
Webmaster recorded Jackie Chan's
The Tuxedo Even though it is 5 years old, Mrs Webmaster
had never seen it. She thought it was brand new. Apparently
it never played in China and hasn't been on the air here in
a couple of years.
Twitter. As you can see, we have a grand total of 9
followers. :/ Come on people, get with the program! The
Webmaster doesn't post a lot of tweets, so we won't be
maxing out your systems. Join up and retweet
Webmaster's musings and announcements.
Until next time, keep those cards, letters and donations
- August 17, 2008
The Angry A/V Admin has done a bit of research and found
that DirecTV has a deal. A free replacement for the Angry
Webmaster's old DVR. Free is far better then spending $100
to get parts for an obsolete model. It arrived last
Wednesday and was quickly configured and is now merrily
recording the adult entertainment...err we mean the cooking
The Angry Sysadmin decided to take apart the old unit and
see if he could fixe the hard drive using
the Gibson Research
Corporation. While removing the drive from the DVR the
Angry Sysadmin scraped his knuckles on the case, drawing
blood. While disconnecting the hard drive from the
Anger Central BBS
server, he managed to slip and slice open a finger right
behind the nail on the same hand.
The Angry Sysadmin was REALLY angry then! He ran SpinRite
and it either didn't find anything wrong, or it quietly
repaired the damage. Since the unit has been deactivated by
DirecTV, we can't test it. We are toying with the idea of
replacing the hard drive with an aftermarket one and either
selling it to the Webmaster's brother or setting it up as a
secondary unit. Right now it's collecting dust in the Anger
Central front office.
While channel surfing last week the Webmaster stumbled upon
a Women's Table Tennis match. It was a Chinese woman, Wang
Nan, and someone else who we've forgotten. Of course the
Webmaster notified Mrs. Webmaster about the game. She
started watching and recognized Ms. Wang. It seems she is
from the same city as Mrs. Webmaster. Needless to say, Ms.
Wang was victorious. The Chinese own Table Tennis the way
Fred Phelps owns Olympic Gold Medals, as well as the patent
on "A hearty breakfast."
Last week was dead as far as the Webmaster's job search.
Late Friday he found one at a company he has looked into
before. He has previously spoken with the HR manager and has
dropped him a line asking to be considered for the opening.
We're keeping our fingers crossed.
Until next time, Stay Angry!
- August 9, 2008
Hi there happy campers, are we all watching the
Olympics? Mrs. Webmaster is watching the opening ceremonies
on our Tivo. A Tivo that is on it's last legs. :(
It's actually part of the DirecTV package the Angry A/V
admin got for use a few years ago. It looks like the hard
drive is beginning to fail. The Angry A/V Admin is looking
into a replacement drive or a new unit. Replacing the drive
with a preloaded copy of the application won't be difficult,
it's just spending the $100 for it.
Speaking of which, many many rejections this week. We did
have a phone screen, but it didn't amount to much. We do not
expect to hear back from the company any time soon. It's
beginning to look like the Webmaster may be out of IT soon.
There are no jobs in the area unless you are certified in 15
different subjects, have a PhD and are willing to work for
minimum wage. In other words, they are looking for H1B
slaves and will not hire Americans. :(
Well, off to practice our pole vaulting and other sports.
- August 3, 2008
Another week has passed and another rejection for a
great job. :(
The company in question sent a letter to the Webmaster
telling him they had found someone who was a perfect fit for
their needs. Small problem here. What the hell were their
needs? The job description was very lacking in details. They
didn't even include a job title. When the Webmaster
interviewed all he really found out was that he would have
to travel to Florida a few days a month. It seems they were
also looking for someone to update their flash only web site
they bought from an outside company.
Sorry, don't do flash and haven't done commercial websites
in over 10 years.
The Webmaster has been out of work for 8 months now. We
never expected it to take this long for him to find a job.
He isn't even able to get interviews. To top it off, he's
now seeing the same jobs being reposted by the same
companies several months later. Because of their automated
submission forms, he can't do anything to let them know he
is still available.
Oh and it gets worse. Now he's being told that since he's
been out for so long, he may be unemployable now. Excuse me?
Is it the Webmaster's fault he is not able to find a job? It
isn't like he's just been sitting around watching the Comedy
Channel all day!
We did get a call from a recruiter last week informing him
of a possible opening near one of his former jobs. "Put me
in!" he cried. We'll be talking to the recruiter this week
to see if anything comes of it. Our guess is it won't.
In other news, we have grown to like twitter. We watched the
goings on in Washington DC last week when the Republicans
refused to leave until a vote had been taken on opening up
the oil fields. It was entertaining and informative. We just
wished that more people would follow the
on twitter. he can be found at @angrywebmaster. :)
We'll keep you informed as to the job search for the Angry
and unemployed Webmaster. Until later,
- July 27, 2008
Well, Google Adcrap has deigned to reply and as expected
has told Anger Central to go take a flying <censored> at a
rolling doughnut. That means the only revenue we get is from
our Tip jar and our Amazon associates ads. We've been
looking around but haven't found anything like Adsense yet.
We tried to set up with Yahoo, but their payment system has
a broken captcha on it and we can't submit to it. Meanwhile
we are removing the old ad codes as well as the Google
analytics we used. Screw them and the horse they road in on
On the job search front, 2 interviews last week and a
lengthy phone screen. :)
The first interview was for a job that the Webmaster has
decided not to apply to. First they didn't state that this
was a second shift job, and the part about doing janitorial
duties as well as desktop support pretty much decided that
The second interview was much more promising and definitely
a lot more interesting. One of the things they didn't
mention was the need to travel to Florida once a month for a
few days. Not a problem since the location is near Disney
World and Mrs. Webmaster might like to go sometime.
The only problem was the day of the interview. The Webmaster
allowed for plenty of time to get to the corporate office,
however some idiot who decided to play chicken with a
tractor-trailer screwed up that time table!
The Webmaster had to take an exit to get to a different
highway. (From north/south to east/west) As soon as he
started up the ramp he saw that traffic wasn't moving at
all. He came to a screeching halt halfway up the ramp and
basically parked. After about 10 minutes he located a radio
station that explained what happened. (To the best of their
information) The State Police had closed the roads and rams
right after the Webmaster drove on to it. :(
Well, the Webmaster is nothing if not resourceful. He
couldn't back down the ramp, so he put the Angry
Transportation System into 4 wheel drive and drove across
the median until he reached the off ramp. He then drove to
the alternate route. The only issue with that was everyone
else was doing that too!
The upshot? The Webmaster was 2 hours late for his
interview! Anger Central would like to thank the inventor of
the Cellular Telephone. The Webmaster was able to call the
person he was to meet with and let him know about the delay.
He said they were aware of the issue and that it wouldn't be
The Webmaster spent about 30-40 minutes with what turned out
to be the president of the company as well as the only IT
person with the company. Hopefully the Webmaster was able to
make an impression. When he returned to the Anger Central
offices he wrote a letter thanking the president and
throwing a few thoughts at him. With luck the Webmaster will
get this job.
Another call came from a different company. The Webmaster
spent a good 45 minutes talking to them and answering
questions. It's also a good job, but not as good an
opportunity as the previous one. Still, we hope something
comes of one of these interviews.
Mrs. Webmaster is finally getting past her jet lag. The bad
news is she has been glued to a stack of DVD's containing
assorted Soap Operas. ;)
The happy couple went out with the Webmaster's parents the
other night and devoured much lobster. A good time was had
Until later, stay angry!
- July 19, 2008
Mrs. Webmaster has arrived safe and sound and has crash
landed on the couch due to a serious case of Jet Lag. She
spent a good 30 hours in transit from Fushun, China to
Manchester, NH. She arrived at 11:15PM EST with a pair of
really heavy bags. :)
Mrs. Webmaster got through Immigration with no issues. The
Webmaster was a bit concerned, since Mrs. Webmaster's Green
Card had expired while she was overseas. We knew this would
happen though and we had an extension letter good for one
year. Mrs. Webmaster took the original and 4 copies.
On the job search front, the Webmaster has another interview
with another company. Hopefully this one will work out. The
unemployment ran out last week, and although the Webmaster
did file for an extension. the first of those checks hasn't
arrived yet. One of the annoying things about this is he has
to file manually and either mail it in or hand deliver it to
the local office. The state hasn't gotten their computer
systems set to handle the new requests.
Nothing from Google regarding Adsense and their claim of
click fraud. No surprise there. Google's numbers came in
this week and their share price is taking a beating. GOOD!
At least now we know why they are stealing...err claiming
small Adsense users are committing click fraud. They need
the money for themselves.
Since yesterday. the Anger Central submission form has been
under attack by spammers. Very few have been able to break
the captcha, and those that do must be trying to load up
viruses and other assorted crap. All the Angry Sysadmin is
seeing is a title and a subject heading. No content. This
too shall pass.
Until next time, Stay Angry!
- July 13, 2008
As we mentioned last week, Google Adsense accused the
owners of Anger Central of click fraud. The Webmaster
promptly filed an appeal and as expected, no answer was
forthcoming. We expected nothing less from the most evil
company in the 21st century. People complain
about Microsoft, but they were classic robber barons of the
19th century in their style. They were interested in the all
Google has gotten people thrown in prison for their
political views. I don't recall Microsoft doing that. Ask a
few Chinese dissidents what THEY think of Google. Oh wait,
you can't. Google has erased them from their databases by
request of the Chinese government.
(We won't discuss how China governs themselves. When in
China, the Webmaster obeyed their rules and will do so the
next time he goes over)
If anyone knows of an affiliate program Anger Central
can sign up with please drop us a line. Sorry, we aren't
going to serve up ads for porn sites. we do get minors in
here on occasion.
Speaking of China, Mrs. Webmaster is due back at the Anger
Central home site this week. The Webmaster is waiting
impatiently for her plane to arrive. The Webmaster hasn't
talked to her for a couple of weeks and hopes she calls home
soon. He has found a potential job for her and needs to ask
her if he should send in her resume.
On the Webmaster Great Search for Gainful Employment, nada.
He received 5 rejections last week, and his unemployment
benefits ran out. There has been a 13 week extension granted
and he has applied for that pittance. We never thought the
Webmaster would be out of work this long. What we are seeing
is the beginnings of the collapse of the U.S. economy,
mostly driven by high oil prices.
Anger Central is in the Drill here, Drill NOW camp. We also
believe in building more refineries and nuclear power
plants. Pity our government, with a few exceptions, believes
in totally destroying the economy and enslaving the people.
(See Sen. Charles Schumer and how
he managed to cause a bank to fail last week)
Well the Webmaster needs to get back to preparing for Mrs.
Webmasters glorious return. Until later, Stay ANGRY!
- July 9, 2008
Oh BOY are WE angry!
This morning we logged in and received a little gem from
Google telling us our Adsense account was being suspended
for alleged click fraud. Click Fraud???
As we wrote below, we received notification that a segment
of Adsense was being retired. That just happened to be the
part we used the most on Anger Central. So we had to go
through the site and make changes and do testing. We also
clicked on some of the links to se where they went, an in a
few cases we were actually interested in.
Gee, ya think that might run up the clicks a bit since we
had to CHANGE THEM ON DOZENS OF PAGES? We weren't making a
lot of money on this site. The last, (and only payment), was
last February. It looks like our testing might have
generated about another $20 or so dollars over the weekend.
Did Google ask us about this? Nooo! They just closed the
account and seized the money.
We have filed an appeal, but considering things we've heard
about Google and how they treat small web sites, we don't
expect the account to be re-enabled. This means we will need
to find another source of revenue or another affiliate
program somewhere. Amazon actually brings in very little for
And Google, if we were going to intentionally commit fraud,
we would have used a few things like
Sandboxie to hide
our tracks. (TOR, The
Onion Router) All Google would have needed to do was
reset things back to July 2 when we posted our last update
regarding the Adsense changes and what we had to do on this
In the meantime we have started removing the Adsense applets
as well as the Google analytics. If Google decides to
re-enable our account we'll put the ads back on. What might
happen if you visit a page that has an ad on it, you might
see a small error message or a blank space.
In other news, 2 more rejections for jobs this morning. (Or
was it three?) And that job we interviewed for last month?
They won't reply to the Webmaster's email on a status. This
usually means that he isn't going to get the job. Why can't
HR people simply reply and say the Webmaster wasn't a fit?
The Webmaster also called the latest recruiter to "help him
find a job." This was at the agency we wrote about on June
24th. He doesn't have to go
down to this office again, however the headhunter did not
give him warm and fuzzies. In fact she told him it would be
very difficult to place him since he has been out of work
for 6 months. Hello? It's not like he was goofing off you
nit! One problem was your own agency and recruiters
disappearing or resigning shortly after meeting with the
Webmaster! Well, when the Webmaster checks in with this
recruiter again, we'll see if we get the same attitude. If
we do the Webmaster will contact the manager there and ask
to be assigned to a more helpful headhunter who actually
wants him to work. *SNARL*
Well, at least Mrs. Webmaster will be coming home very soon
She will help put the Webmaster back on a semblance of an
We'll keep you informed on how the screwing over by Google
goes. Until later.
- July 2, 2008
We were notified that Google Adsense is no longer
supporting referrals in the Adsense program. Since most of
the ads on this site are referrals, we will have to go
through and reconfigure them. No doubt we will miss some. If
at the end of August you see a blank spot where an ad should
be, please drop a line to the Webmaster care of this Domain.
Mrs. Webmaster will be coming home in just a couple of
weeks!! Yay! :)
On the job front, still no job for the Webmaster. In fact,
this week he was called by the recruiter who he had to meet
with a couple of weeks ago. She was letting him know that
she was leaving her job and that he was going to be handed
off to yet another recruiter. This makes three in the same
office in 4 months! The Webmaster sent the new recruiter a
hello note. If this one also demands a face to face, the
Webmaster will refuse unless they compensate him for his
travel expenses. If this one balk he's going to call the
manager of the office and complain loudly about lost
opportunities due to their turnover.
This weekend is the Independence Day weekend. We Americans
celebrate our independence from the British crown. These
days we may need to have another Tea Party regarding our own
So, have a great weekend and try not to blow to many fingers
- June 24, 2008
We're running a bit behind this week. The Webmaster threw
his back out and it was painful for him to remain seated
long enough to complete the updates. He's better now.
No news yet on the interview. If we don't hear back by the
end of the week we will contact the HR manager and force her
to admit they won't do the smart thing and hire the
Speaking of the job front, the Webmaster is heading to
another meet and greet with another headhunter. This one is
in an office he went to a few months back. The problem is
the headhunter he was dealing with left the company and the
Webmaster was lost in the shuffle. This may have cost him a
job too. He intends to make sure that this new person
understand that traveling 60 miles is not a good idea for a
30 minute meeting. The Angry accountant figures this is
going to cost Anger Central a good $30 for gas.
The Webmaster also spoke with Mrs. Webmaster yesterday. Her
phone card expired after 2 minutes so the Webmaster called
her back via Skype. The new service gives him 10000 minutes
a month for about $10/month. A very good deal. We are also
playing around withy Skype 4 Beta. So far no problems,
although there are a few complaints regarding the user
interface. It is beta so we're fairly certain they will fix
Another new toy the Webmaster is playing with is called
Data Crow. This is an
open source catalogue application for Movies, applications,
music, etc. Since the application we were using seems to
have stopped development, we're moving to this new one. best
of all, it's free and doesn't require installation that
writes to the registry.
Back to the salt mines for the Webmaster.
Stay angry and keep clicking on those ads! ;)
- June 16, 2008
Well, the Webmaster went to the interview. He met the HR
manager and she is a nice person. He also met the Global IT
Manager. He seems OK. The test was pretty basic, more of a
"What you know" type test then some bogus certification
nonsense. The manager said the Webmaster was the first
person he had met, and that he had a few others to meet with
over the next week. Once he had gone through that, he was
going to call a few back. Then a decision will be made.
As usual, when the phone doesn't ring, it will be the notice
that the job the Webmaster wanted went to some other, less
deserving person. :(
Well, we will keep out fingers crossed. The job is actually
a good one. The location is about a mile from the Anger
Central Primary Domicile. In fact, the parking lot of the
business was used by Mrs. Webmaster to practice driving when
she was preparing for her drivers license examinations.
In other news, The Angry Niece graduated High School this
weekend. She has a slot in a good collage and will be
heading up September 1st to begin her freshman
year. It seems like yesterday when the Angry Niece was
screaming her lungs out during her first Thanksgiving and
the Webmaster was wearing earplugs while eating Turkey. :)
Yesterday was Fathers day. The Webmaster had a few issues
with his sister and left. The last time issues like this
occurred the Webmaster didn't speak to his sister for 6
months. We think he's going to try for 9 months this time.
- June 12, 2008
Job interview on Friday the 13th!?!
Yes, the Webmaster has an interview tomorrow morning. The
company is about 1 mile from the Anger Central primary
domicile. We aren't to sure about this one, but we'll see
how it goes. The IT manager plans on "Testing" our hero.
Does the Webmaster hate tests? YES!!
The Webmaster has noted that there are people following him
If you use Twitter add him to your friends. he needs them.
The Webmaster doesn't post to often, usually a notice on new
postings. So join up and help the Webmaster bury Leo LaPorte
and Kevin Rose!! Muhahahaha!! ;D
- June 8, 2008
The Webmaster is still unable to find a job. It's been over
6 months now and he is getting really depressed. He's
lowered his sights a bit, but what he's seeing now are the
same jobs he did 10 years ago for just above minimum wage.
This is significantly lower then he was MAKING at the SAME
JOB 10 years ago! To top it off, even those jobs are an hour
away from the Angry Webmaster's primary dwelling. Even if he
got that job, he would slowly starve to death. The pay
wouldn't even cover the cost of transportation.
Speaking of which, the price of gas. $4/gallon. Why is this
so high? Easy really. 85% of the known reserves of energy in
the U.S. are off limits to development by act of Congress
and the courts. And these are the KNOWN reserves. The oil
companies aren't even allowed to drill where they think
there might be oil.
Last week, these geniuses in Congress tried to pass a bill
that would basically shut down all industry in this country.
It was called Cap and Trade. It was nothing more then a
massive tax increase and the creation of yet more
government. Barak Obozo supports this of course as does that
We know there are a lot of followers of the Goracle's Church
of Global Warming. Pity this is just a fake problem
manufactured to enrich Al Gore and his cronies. (All
those carbon credits? See who is getting the money. FOLLOW
THE MONEY!) According to the real science, the
temperature hasn't been going up, and appears to have
actually gone DOWN the last ten years. There are credible
scientists who think we might be heading for a mini-ice age.
So, what to do? Easy. Drill, dig and build. Drill more oil
wells, Build more nuclear power plants and refineries, open
the Oil Shale deposits, dig more coal. Yes, thanks to the
slime in Congress not to mention the Marxist elitists in the
so called Environmental movement, we are going to suffer for
the better part of a decade while all this stuff gets built.
That's if these morons even allow it in the first place.
So, to all our fans now in Collage, what are your plans when
you graduate in the next 1-4 years? Forget getting a job,
there won't be any. We're heading into a depression that
will make the one in the 1930's look mild. You'll still have
to pay those student loans back of course. What's that? You
don't have the money? To bad.
Does the Angry Webmaster sound bitter? Oh yeah! He reads
history and sees Bad Thingstm coming.
Well Mrs. Webmaster will be returning in a month and we will
sit down together and make some decisions on our future. We
might have to sell the Anger Central Domicile and seek new
lodgings in another area of the nation. Not fun.
Well, the Webmaster has ranted enough.
- May 25, 2008
Since our last news update, another potential employer
told our hero, the Angry Webmaster to take a hike. He is not
happy. Well, through an acquaintance, the Webmaster has
gained access to a small e-learning site and is now in the
process of rampaging through it. Right now he is working on
SharePoint 2007 and has some CISSP and Exchange classes in
the wings. Hopefully he will be able to pass the tests and
gain some certifications that paper shufflers in HR
departments love so well.
That is a bit unfair. One of the rejections didn't come from
an HR person, but from the techs in the department. They
sent the Webmaster a timed test to see what he knew. The
Webmaster as well as the Angry Sysadmin both recognized the
questions. They had chopped bits and pieces from various
certification exams. The Webmaster answered most of the
questions, but of course they weren't the "Right" answers so
he wasn't qualified.
The Angry Sysadmin suggested the clown(s) who came up with
this test were probably propeller heads, in their 30's and
living in their parents basements. The only girls they've
seen are the ones they can download from the internet. Touch
one? HAH! They would suffer a panic attack and shrivel up in
the corner of a room somewhere.
In other news, this is Memorial Day weekend. This is the
time of year when all true blue Americans think about those
who died protecting this nation and our worthless behinds.
Of course there will be the idiots, morons and flat out
traitors who will denigrate, insult and in a few cases
attack our boys and girls in uniform. The troops can't
really do much about it unless they are actually hit. (Then
it's call the meat wagon and scrape up the remains of the
However, all true citizens, and those who have come to
America legally can and should explain to these morons the
error of their ways...with a large blunt instrument,
preferably implanted in the anal canal. ;)
Not that we are advocating violence. We would never do that
nor would we condone it. :x
No, just calmly and rationally explain to the protester that
the only reason they have the right make a complete ass of
themselves is due to someone in uniform blowing away
Islamofascist scumbags and risking their lives to do it. If
you see someone in uniform, walk up to them and say "Thank
you Soldier", (or Airman, sailor, etc. If an officer say
"Sir") If you feel a bit self conscious doing that, then a
simple thumbs up will suffice. :)
On another note, those of you reading our RSS feed should
click the links and read the main entries. The Webmaster on
occasion will post a "Note from Anger Central" and most of
the time you won't see it if all you do is read the RSS
Meanwhile, have a safe weekend and stay angry!
- May 22, 2008
Well, the Webmaster was rejected for 2 jobs this week,
and it's only Thursday morning. One was a job he really
wanted. It was near his home and would have been a great
learning experience. The other was for a medical center near
one of his old places of employment.
The first rejection was short and succinct. "We selected
someone who better fit our requirements." No idea what that
means. My guess is they found someone who knows everything,
is here on an H1B visa, is about to be deported and will
work for almost nothing.
The second one sent the Webmaster a timed test. He had one
hour to finish it and send it back to the HR person. He was
able to do about 75% of of it. Some of the things they asked
he has no experience with, but could easily pick it up.
Nope! He "Didn't meet the minimum requirements." Manure! The
test he took was an mix of several certification exams.
Those things only show that you have memorized the text
books and don't have any real world use.
The Webmaster also had to trudge back to the Unemployment
office again for yet another waste of time meeting. The
drone basically criticized the Webmaster but offered
nothing. The system in this state needs to be changed
drastically. These bureaucrats should be talking to
companies in the area and pointing them to possible people
in need of a job. Instead all they do is fill out paperwork
and get fat. The Webmaster suspects the person he's been
dealing with has always worked for state and has never
needed to worry about a job. Time to call the State Reps and
see about making a few changes to the system. If done right,
it won't cost the taxpayers a dime and may in fact save them
In other news, the Webmaster has created a Twitter account.
You can see him venting and raving between postings. His URL
http://www.twitter.com/angrywebmaster. Sign up and feel
free to follow him. Do NOT send him rants to be posted.
Those will not be run through our "Super Sekret double
exposure identification stripping system" and could be
tracked back to you.
Until next time, stay Angry!

The Webmaster spoke with his beloved wife and as expected,
they didn't feel the quake in her city.
Still no news on the job front for the Webmaster. He is
supposed to hear back from the last interview some time this
week. Considering the track record of the companies he has
been applying/interviewing at, he isn't holding his breath.

There was a major earthquake in China last night. The
epicenter was south and west of Beijing and Mrs. Webmaster
is north east of Beijing. the Webmaster hasn't been able to
reach as yet but she should be Ok.
Of course these damn telemarketers keep calling and they
have their systems rigged to come up as unknown number on
the caller ID. When Mrs. Webmaster calls from overseas that
also comes up as Unknown number. This forces the Webmaster
to answer all such calls. They should be forced to list a
true number so we can ignore them more efficiently!
- May 9, 2008
Well the Webmaster has gone for another interview. This
one lasted almost 2 hours, most of it with an engineer. He
then spent about 20 minutes with the manager. It's a good
job, and we're all hoping he gets it. The other position the
Webmaster went for has apparently been given to someone
else. As usual, the hiring manager won't return the
Webmaster's requests for updates.
One of the things the engineer/interviewer asked the
Webmaster was what might be wrong with a customer's system.
This was a real ticket, so we won't go into details. Working
with the engineer, who had been working on this for several
weeks, the Webmaster came up with a possible solution. The
Engineer went "Bingo!" Hopefully this bodes well for the
future employment of the Webmaster at this firm.
We got another posting from a wife in a really bad
situation. We provided a few thoughts and hopefully she will
take advantage of them.
We also got an email this week. It looked like it was
supposed to be a posting. However it didn't make it online
for 2 reasons. First, since it wasn't a posting through our
web form, we had all the information we would need to track
back the person. If we could do it, so could legal type
The other reason was the tone of the message. Noting in
there regarding anger. It was just a hate filled screed
against fat people. Granted, this is a judgment call, but
some things are just so obviously against our stated
policies that we won't let it go up.
We've also been playing around with
Stickam.com. We're not
sure what we could do with it in regards to Anger Central,
but it is kind of cool to fool around with. We've also set
one up for Mrs. Webmaster, although she isn't aware of it
(Being 10,000 miles away doesn't help)
Speaking of travel, The Angry Brother and his family just
got back from a trip to Scotland. The Webmaster asked if he
had brought back any Scotch or a few pounds of "Nessie
Steaks." Sadly the answer was no to both. :(
Well, the Webmaster is heading out tonight for some lobster
with his parents. The Angry Father, who is in his 80's, has
a home office the Webmaster maintains for him. He's doing
more business now then he did the last few years working in
an office for another company. To celebrate, the Angry
Father likes to take his annoying children out once in a
We will say that if anyone has a reason to rant, it's the
Angry Father. He was a classic victim of age discrimination
at his last firm. They let go a large number of people who
all seemed to have one thing in common. They were all over
55. In his case, revenge is profitable. ;)
Until later, Stay angry!

ANNND THEIR OFF!
Today is the annual Kentucky Derby. The Webmaster will be
attending the annual party thrown by the Angry Parents.
(Angry parents you say? You didn't know the Webmaster when
he was a youth)
The Angry parents have a party every year. The Webmaster
helps out by staying out of the way. Does anyone have any
tips on which horse will win?
Last night the Webmaster went to see Iron Man. Our
recommendation is simple. See this movie! The lead character
is an unabashed patriot even if he started out as a jerk.
Without doing to much in spoilers, he saves the innocent
villagers and kills the terrorists. YAY! There's a small
bone thrown to the commies out there when Tony Stark has a
"Come to Jesus" moment and decides to change the course of
the company. You also have an evil corporate magnet who is
stealing stuff and selling it to the evil Taliban. Stark
being the good guy puts a stop to it when he finds out.
Through it all, Tony Stark remains proud of his country. The
CGI is terrific, even if the physics and medical science is
a wee bit off. We predict a good run for this film and
sequels down the road. Someone in Hollywood figured out that
Americans like Patriots and pro American films, and not the
anti-American crap they've been putting out for years.
In other news, The Webmaster will be going to an interview
next Thursday. The Angry Legal Counsel went through the site
and was surprised to find that there are no postings on the
company the Webmaster is interviewing at. As is our policy,
we won't be mentioning the name of the company.
Mrs. Webmaster called in and spoke with her wonderful
She's still dealing with the jet lag, and was complaining
about the incredibly high temperatures caused by Global
Warming in her home town. It's so hot over there she's had
to wear an overcoat to keep from freezing to death. :/
In Anger Central news, we have started trimming back the RSS
feed a bit. Basically we will be keeping items in the RSS
feed for only a month or so. The file was getting rather
large and the bandwidth usage was climbing because of it.
Well, the Webmaster has to go and get ready for the Run for
the Roses. No doubt his horse will get in sometime tomorrow.
- May 1, 2008
It's been an interesting week here at Anger Central.
Mrs. Webmaster has arrived safely in
Fushun, China and is getting over her jet lag and "Plane
sickness." The entire Anger Central staff misses her
terribly, but she did leave a large supply of home made
dumplings in the cafeteria freezer.
On the job front, the Webmaster had another phone screen and
this has resulted in an interview. It's in the process of
being scheduled. The location is very close to the Anger
Central data center and is with a company that has been
posted about here. Needless to say, if the Webmaster gets
this job, the Angry Attorney is going to have to do some
disclosures and stuff. (What a pain!)
The job will be running a technical support lab for the
Engineers who handle client calls. The Webmaster will be
responsible for setting up the equipment in such a way that
the Engineers can replicate the problem. Well, at least the
Webmaster won't have to talk to the clients. It is a great
Another job the Webmaster interviewed for hasn't been
decided. It's also a good job. The Webmaster will send off
an email to the hiring manager shortly asking for a status.
No doubt the position has been given to someone far less
deserving then our humble Webmaster. ;)
The last the Webmaster heard, the hiring manager had an
issue and couldn't take the time to make a decision. That
was a little over a week ago. Of the two positions, the
Webmaster is thinking that this one might be the better of
the two in a career sense. Also it's a smaller company and
this will give the Webmaster more control over things.
In Anger Central news, the Webmaster has started trimming
back the archived RSS documents. Basically you will see
about a months worth in history. This is being down to save
Until nest time...
Stay Angry! ;)
- April 20, 2008
Mrs. Webmaster is all set of her trip back to the
homeland tomorrow. The Webmaster is getting the spring
loaded mattress ready to help her get out of bed at 4am.
(The flight is 6:30am and we need to get to the airport at
least an hour early for security)
Still no news on the search for gainful employment. The
Webmaster sent out an email to the hiring manager of the
position he really wants, but no reply yet. He was contacted
by a headhunter Friday about a position near his old
company. However this job is a step backwards both in skills
and money. A big step backwards.
The Webmaster is starting to look at more classes. The only
problem is the unemployment morons here won't send the check
if he "Isn't available for work." Basically they want the
Webmaster, and anyone else, to sit around. If you decide to
try and improve your skill set, they say you aren't
available and won't allow you to claim unemployment. Morons!
The classes are generally 1-2 weeks long, and any employer
would be happy to wait for a potential employee to get some
training on his own dime. Try explaining that to some
bureaucrats who only care about crossing T's and dotting I's.
The Webmaster will just flat out lie to them. The problem
is, the system is set up for day laborers and farm workers,
not highly skilled professionals. This needs to change and
Well, in the meantime, back to the job boards.
- April 17, 2008
The Webmaster is still waiting for that call telling him
he has a job. Nothing yet of course. :(
Mrs. Webmaster is all packed and ready to go. She leaves for
China Monday the 21st. The Webmaster is moping
around and already is missing her.
The Anger Central Mansion suffered a broken window over the
weekend. The window is a double pane and one of the panes is
completely shattered. It's barely in the frame. Mrs.
Webmaster decided to use the time honored tradition of
inexpensive repairs. She duct taped the thing. ;)
The Webmaster spoke with the Angry Facilities manager and
has a quote for $90 to replace the glass. The order has been
placed and as soon as it comes in the Angry Facilities
Manager will pull the window out of the frame and take it to
Earlier this week the the Angry Webmaster had to pay a visit
to the Unemployment office. What a complete waste of time.
The whole system in the state the Webmaster lives in is set
up to fail. The Webmaster would like to take a few classes
to improve his skills, but if he does, he "Is not available
for work" and forfeits his mediocre unemployment check for
at least that week. The whole system is really set up for
day laborers and factory workers, neither of which have much
of a role in this area of the country any more.
The person the Webmaster has been dealing with is only
concerned with her forms, crossing the "T's" and dotting the
"I's". The Webmaster doesn't believe she's EVER worked in
the "Dreaded private sector" in her entire life. All she
cares about, (and we assume this goes for everyone in that
office), is making sure that people are actually looking for
a job. Hello? That crummy check we get doesn't even cover
the mortgage you morons!
Oh well, the Webmaster has a few calls and emails to make to
see what's up with the job's he's looking at.
Until later, Stay Angry
- April 11, 2008
Well, the Webmaster went for the interview for the good
position. It's better then he had hopes with lots of
potential. The downside is there are 6 other candidates the
manager is looking at. The Webmaster did his best and hopes
he came across alright. Being a positive sort, he is certain
he won't get the job. Absolutely positive in fact. ;)
The company is a small spinoff of a couple of larger
companies. They are working on a very interesting product.
We won't be going into it here of course, but it could save
a lot of lives down the road.
Mrs. Webmaster is all set for her grand return to the Middle
Kingdom. She has renewed her drivers license, and was quite
happy she didn't have to take another test. She has gotten
her car inspected at a far lower cost then we anticipated.
Yep, she is all set to go.
The Webmaster on the other hand is moping around like
someone just killed and ate his favorite dog. Oh well, the
happy couple or going out with the Webmaster's parents this
weekend to murder and devour lobsters.
Until next time...

Today is Mrs. Webmaster's Birthday. She is "27" years
old today. Please wish Mrs. Webmaster a happy birthday by
heading into the
Central Company Store and buying something, or clicking
on our donation button. :)
- April 6, 2008
It's been an interesting week. The Webmaster has another
interview this week, and this job looks interesting. We
won't be going into details, but it is a great opportunity.
Mrs. Webmaster's car failed inspection again, and this time
the repairs are going to cost $$$. The Webmaster would just
as soon send that piece of junk to the bone yard, but Mrs.
Webmaster wants to keep if for a little while longer. She
has arranged something through one of her friends and will
get the repairs done at a better price then the webmaster.
Mrs. Webmaster has also bought plane tickets for a trip back
to China. She will be leaving on the 21st of
April and return on July 15th. She doesn't want
to get caught up in the Olympics mess that will happen in
Beijing in August. She is looking forward to seeing her
mother and her sisters again. Her mother is not well and
this may be the last time. At least, Mrs. Webmaster has a
Green Card and can travel freely.
We've been playing around with Google Analytics, (Which we
noted a while back). It's been very interesting. We aren't
pulling IP addresses, which makes us happy, but just seeing
the locations of our fans is cool! One question for all of
you out there. Why is Israel so underrepresented compared to
the Islamic world? Come on people! We like Kosher food now
and then. :)
We've also been sticking Google ads hither and yon
throughout the site. It looks like we might actually make
enough to pay for the hosting of Anger Central. YAY! It's
tough when you have no income, so keep clicking on those
We're still working on the best format of course, and you
will see it being tweaked out here and there.
Until later, Stay Angry and give us money! :D
- March 30, 2008
Well, the Webmaster has finally had an interview. Yay?
The job involves a great deal of traveling, and probably
long hours. If offered he is considering turning it down. He
has also had another phone screen with a very large company,
however the position doesn't look all that great. If it's
the only opportunity, he will take it, but keep looking.
There is another opportunity he is hoping to get. This one
is closer to home and is a better opportunity then either of
the first two. As usual, the Webmaster isn't holding his
The Webmaster also heard back from a local financial
institution. He was turned down and not even interviewed.
The Webmaster does wish to publicly thank the HR person. She
was very good about keeping him up to date on the selection
progress. To bad the institution isn't aware of what they
have missed out on.
Mrs. Webmaster has been glued to the corporate office sofa
catching up on her Chinese soap operas. She's moving through
a stack of about 40 DVD's.
Mrs. Webmaster is also planning on her return to China. The
happy couple are heading to the local Immigration office
this week to make sure her papers are in order. Her Green
Card expires next month, and while she has received an
extension, she wants to make sure there are no issues. She
will be leaving at the end of April and be gone for 3
So start heading to the Anger Central Company Store and
buying stuff! :)
On the political front, the crew here at Anger Central have
been following Rush Limbaugh's Operation Chaos with much
mirth and merriment. Although we have decided on a "None of
the above" endorsement this cycle, we do like watching
anything that cause devastation and chaos among the
communists...err we mean the Democrats. ;)
The latest stupid idea to come out of there is a Draft Al
Gore movement. We support this completely and demand that
the Democratic Party select Al Gore as the Nominee at the
convention! No doubt Senator McCain will strap on his old
Skyhawk and lay a pattern of 500 pounders on him and then
swing around for a low level strafing attack. Or he could
just land the plane on Gore. Lord knows he's big enough to
handle an aircraft lading on him. :D
Until next time, Stay Angry!

Well, the Webmaster finally has an interview. However,
it doesn't look like the job is what he is after. Still it's
an interview. The Webmaster has also had another phone
screen. This job looks interesting and it's close to the
Anger Central Domicile. We'll know more in a couple of
Mrs. Webmaster is slowly recovering from the slave like
working conditions she recently left. In fact she took a
trip to NYC yesterday to see some friends. Unfortunately,
she seems to have picked up a bug. She came home today not
Mrs. Webmasters car is now fully repaired from the recent
attempt to fly. However the bill was steeper then we planned
on, and more work will need to be done to bring the Reject
from Rent-A-Wreck up to legality for the state they live in.
So please, feel free to visit the
Central Company store. We now carry a full selection of
stuff for the Amazon Kindle.

A few notes. The Webmaster has a job interview on the
25th. He's not to sure about this one, but is going to meet
with the company and see what's what. He was also called by
the contracting firm that got him his last job. They wanted
to know if he was interested in going back to that company.
It would be a different job and more money. Can we say
YES!??! Additionally another company he is looking at was
supposed to call him Monday with word on his being
interviewed. No call came, so he has emailed the HR manager.
This manager has been rather good at keeping the Webmaster
up to date on the job, unlike most of the HR weenies out
there. We'll let you know how things turn out.
Mrs. Webmaster is doing well. She has decided that working
88 hours a week for a slave driving cow is no longer what
she wants to do. She told the dragon lady that effective
immediately, she will no longer be working there. Needless
to say, the now former boss was not happy. Mrs. Webmaster
was doing the work of three people and being paid less then
minimum wage. Overtime? HAH!
Mrs. Webmaster is suffering from a clear case of burnout.
This may have been a partial cause of her accident earlier
this week. She has been sleeping and basically de-stressing
from the miserable work environment. She'll either look for
a new job in a few weeks or more likely go back to China for
a month or two and see her mother.
Otherwise, it's been a slow week.
Until next time.
- March 11, 2008
We had a minor incident last night. To be more specific,
Mrs. Webmaster had a minor incident of the traffic kind. She
drove her car over a cliff.
Ayup, last night, the Webmaster was relaxing, watching the
History channel when the phone rang. Mrs. Webmaster had gone
out to have dinner with her friend. It was Mrs. Webmaster,
but she was almost incoherent. Her friend's husband took the
phone and asked the Webmaster to come over and bring the
insurance cards. Mrs. Webmaster was OK, but had had an
At the phrase, "She is OK", the Webmasters pulse dropped
back to something like normal. He grabbed the required
papers and drove over. When he arrived he saw a vehicle from
the local constabulary parked down the street.
The Webmaster looked but didn't see Mrs. Webmaster's car.
The reason he didn't see it was simple. It wasn't on the
street, it was in the neighbors backyard. Oops! :)
Mrs. Webmaster's friends home has a driveway that ends at an
embankment. There is a drop of about 18" to the ground. The
Webmaster looked down and saw his beloved bride's car
sitting at the bottom of a hill.
He went into the house to see Mrs. Webmaster. She was
physically OK, but was an emotional wreck. Then he and the
Friends husband walked down to talk with the homeowner who
now had a new opening in his fence.
"Opening in the fence?" you ask?
Yes. Mrs. Webmaster crashed through a fence and came to a
stop just shy of the back porch.
The Webmaster spoke with the homeowner who was in rather
good spirits. The actual damage to his property was minor.
Mrs. Webmaster had managed to go between the support posts
and only flattened the section of fencing. The fence in
question is a prefabricated type, and repairs should consist
of bolting a new section in place.
Now, what happened with Mrs. Webmasters Reject from
Rent-A-Wreck? After the towing company hauled it back up the
hill, they did a quick check. Other then a smashed parking
light and mirror on the drivers side, and yet another dimple
in the fender, it was fully drivable. In fact Mrs.
Webmaster's friend drove it home for her.
Today the Webmaster went down to the corporate motor pool
and checked with the Angry Mechanic. The estimated cost of
repairs is about $140. The only problem will be getting
parts for the vehicle. (It's 17 years old)
We've scheduled repairs for next week and Mrs. Webmaster is
taking a few days off to recover her balance. She had a good
scare. She has informed her evil boss that she had an
accident and is in the hospital. She should be back to work
So if you would like to help Mrs. Webmaster, head on in to
Central Company Store and buy something, or click on the
Paypal donation button. All proceeds will be put towards a
good cause. A new BMW for Mrs. Webmaster! :)

Oh great! Who knew that last night we were supposed to
turn the clocks ahead? Thank you Rep. Markey, (Dumbass, MA)
The crew at Anger Central completely forgot that Daylight
savings time starts this weekend. Mrs. Webmaster mentioned
it to her husband, but he didn't recall seeing anything
about it. He woke up and started banging away on his
computer. Mrs. Webmaster, who works for a real slave driver,
slept in. She didn't have to be at work until around
The Webmaster happened to notice the time on his workstation
and realized the clocks had changed. Mrs. Webmaster was
going to be an hour late! She quickly bolted from the Angry
homestead and raced to her place of business. What a mess.
Well at least it didn't happen tomorrow! Why is that so
important? The happy couple have to be at the local USCIS
offices at 8am EST so that Mrs. Webmaster can get her
picture taken and her fingers printed. We're going through
the Removal of Conditions on her Green Card. Once she
completes this process Mrs. Webmaster will be able to stay
in the U.S. for 10 years. During that time, she will be come
eligible to try for citizenship if she so chooses. For now,
it's in her interest to have a green card. It makes it
easier for her to travel to and from her homeland.
On the Great Search for Gainful Employment, nada. A few
rejections telling the Webmaster he wasn't qualified or
didn't have some tiny little skill set that no one else has
used in 10 years. We might hear something tomorrow about an
opening the Webmaster is interested in. More then likely it
will be "Thanks, but get lost!
The Webmaster also has to pay a visit to the local
unemployment office. (Pack of useless drones)
Basically he has to prove to these twits that he is actually
trying to find a job and not live off the largesse of the
unemployment benefit. If anyone has seen what this state
pays out, you'll know that living on it is a joke. It
doesn't even cover the mortgage on the Anger Central
The Spam storm we mentioned earlier this week has passed. We
notified our hosting service of what we were seeing. They
thanked the Angry Email Engineer as well as the Angry
Network Security officer for the information.
Until next time.
- March 4, 2008
Well this is annoying. The Webmaster woke up this
morning, activated his primary system and received a large
number of bounce messages. He woke up the Angry Systems
Administrator who did a little investigative work. It looks
like some Botnet hijacked the Angry.net domain and started
spewing out crap. We tracked some of this manure back to a
DSL user in Spain. That connection is now offline and we
suspect the ISP spotted the problem and killed the
connection. We have notified the hosting company that
handles the Angry.net domain and our website of what
happened and what we found.
If you are a systems administrator and have been tasked with
trying to figure out where that pile of odious bytes came
from, it wasn't from Anger Central. We apologize for the
inconvenience. This nonsense seems to happen about once a
year. Now we'll have to visit all the black list maintainers
and see if they have blocked our domain again.
In any case, we apologize for the problems and we hope to be
able to activate the Anger Central Executive Action
Committee to track down and terminate this spammer with
extreme prejudice! Or at least get his ass tossed in jail.

This update is primarily site changes. Most of this
weeks postings went up yesterday, but we didn't do any news.
You may notice that we have removed the Search button and
replaced it with Google's search function. We did this to
get rid of the clunky search feature built into MS Frontpage.
We also stand to make a few bucks off it as well.
Speaking of which, we just received our first Google Adsense
payment. WooHoo! It only took three years to get it. Now
that we've done some ads, (And we do apologize, but we need
the cash), hopefully more money will be coming in. So just
click on the odd ad now and then, or head off to Amazon.com
and buy some books. :)
Still noting on the job front. We spoke with an HR type last
week and he said he was going to hand the Webmaster's Resume
over to the hiring manager. We've heard that one before. A
couple of months ago we heard the same thing from another
company that we wanted to work for. The HR manager never
bothered to tell the Webmaster whether or not he was being
considered, or had been rejected. He also blew off two
attempts via email asking that question.
Compare that with the HR manager at a different company the
Webmaster has applied to. This person has been keeping the
Webmaster informed and up to date. Last we heard the VP
there was going to decide who was going to be interviewed.
(Somehow the Webmaster feels his chances are low) *sad look*
However, this HR manager demonstrates how it should be done.
The Webmaster has written this person thanking him/her for
And now for something completely different...A man with
three buttocks.. No! This is NOT Monty Python! Actually,
we're about to complain about Global Warming, and how this
is the biggest crock since the first teenage boy told his
girlfriend, "Don't worry, I'll pull out!"
We just finished clearing the Anger Central domicile for the
umpteenth time this winter. It has been cold and there is
more snow cover in the U.S. since 1966. Parts of China were
virtually closed down due to snow, and they have been seeing
snow where they haven't had any in recorded history!
According to astronomers, we may be entering into something
Maunder Minimum. What's this you ask? It is a period of
minimal to no sunspot activity. Apparently, the last one
that happened coincided with what's been called "The
Little Ice Age". Basically, we aren't getting warmer, we
are getting colder. All this manure about CO2 levels and how
we have to wreck our economies to "Save the planet", is just
that. the night soil of a well fed male ox.
More and more science is coming in showing that this is what
may be happening. However, we know that the followers of the
High Church of Global Warming, headed by High Cardinal Al
Gore the Magnificent, won't believe this even if there are
icebergs floating off of Miami.
We're sorry, but we have no intention of letting these left
destroy our economy, not to mention keeping the third world
nations in perpetual poverty, just so they can sit around
trees and sing
all day long.
So, all you ignorant followers of Al Gore, get a clue and
actually read the science. Gore is full of it and has always
been so. This is just a scam so he can make piles of cash
err, we mean Carbon offsets. You may want to see who stands
to make a mint off of those!
That is all!

We've been watching the new stats from Google Analytics.
It's fun seeing all the visitors from different countries.
Some of this surprises us. We would have expected it to be
blocked. In any case, Hello to all of you! Don't forget that
you can access this site via

We also heard something interesting. It seems that some
people think that we write all the postings to Anger
Central. Umm, no we don't. The only places you will see us
rite anything is here in the News & Information section, and
an occasional Note from Anger Central. Most of those notes
tend towards insulting the poster for being a moron.
However, we do occasionally post a response that is helpful
with a technical matter, and in a very few occasions, we
will tell a poster that he/she needs to get out of a
One such case was a woman who to put it bluntly, was married
to a real turd. She was in a really bad way. (See
Husbands 34) Our advice to this was rather simple. Leave
now. About a year later we got an email from the poster
about what we wrote. Normally we don't post email and we
will not put anything up that violates this woman's privacy,
however we think you should see this message:
"HI I wanted to say thank you. I wrote the story about
husband 34 (something about the title saying he was a baby

have been other Notes from Anger Central in a similar vein.

I owe part of it to whoever posted that.

So, this is a reminder that Anger Central doesn't create the

passes muster, we will put it up here for one and all to
Speaking of helping others, we received a rant from someone
who is really down right now. We almost bit bucketed when we
read his opening line about getting a gun. The Webmaster has

The website update is a day late. This is due to the
Webmaster goofing off. The Angry Manager has beaten him
severely for his impudence and he is now back at work. The management
Sorry Boss, won't happen again!
Anyway, Mrs. Webmaster is in the the Webmaster's office
using his Skype phone to call a friend in North Carolina.
For some reason the AT&T phones we use won't connect with
her friends house phone. Using the main office line for a
long distance call is not considered a good idea due to the
present cash flow problems. So the Webmaster is letting his
beloved wife use his "computer phone" since it's nice and
Pity the Webmaster's language skills in regards to Mandarin
Chinese are lacking. ;)
Mrs. Webmaster has a cell phone and also uses the primary
residential phone as well. It is quite common to see her
using two phones at once which causes the no end of
Still no news on the job front. The Webmaster has been in
contact with an HR rep at a local firm. We would like to
publicly state that this HR rep is very professional. The
Rep has been good at returning emails from the Webmaster and
keeping him in the loop. Hopefully things will work out and
the Webmaster will return to gainful employment.
Now the contracting firms the Webmaster has been forced to
apply to. There are a number of openings that the Webmaster
is qualified for and would like to do. The problem is
getting these boneheads to actually contact him. One
position he has seen is being advertised by two different
contracting firms. The Webmaster has emailed everyone he
knows to try and get an interview with the company offering
the job. Bunch of useless.....!
Until next time.

It was a slow week posting wise. Only a few rants came in
worth the time to post them. Probably all the normal posters
were celebrating Chinese New Year and Valentines Day.
Speaking of which...
February 14, 2003 is the anniversary of Mr. and Mrs.
Webmaster's first meeting. :)
In two days it will be the happy couple's 3rd Wedding
anniversary. It would be nice if the myriad of potential
employers would send the Webmaster job offers...
Yes, the Webmaster is still looking for gainful employment.
He isn't having a lot of luck even landing interviews. Most
of the time he gets stopped at the HR phone screen. This is
so depressing. Most HR people really aren't qualified to do
interviews with technical people. They just look for
buzzwords and certifications. Once the Webmaster gets past
the HR people and meets with the hiring manager, he usually
impresses him or her.
To top all this off, the Webmaster had to put in an
appearance at the local unemployment office. The state the
Webmaster lives in generally doesn't provide much help or
encouragement and this visit proved no exception. What the
Webmaster wants is more training. However, even if he goes
to a class on his own nickel, he can be docked his check
since he "Won't be available for work." This means you are
screwed no matter what you do.
The crew here at Anger Central thinks the entire
unemployment insurance system needs to be blown up, burned
and the ashes bulldozed into a pit. This mess is not
designed to help people find new jobs, it's set up for
bureaucrats to fill in forms and waste money.
When the Webmaster mentioned several positions he applied
to, and that he later found out they were bogus ones, the
bureaucrat he had to deal with demonstrated a complete lack
of clue. When he mentioned the video that went viral last
summer, showing a law firm giving a seminar on how to
legally avoid hiring Americans, the cluemeter dropped to
Well the Webmaster has put in for a few jobs local to the
Anger Central Office Complex, and hopefully one of them will
pan out. What really makes him nervous is when they ask for
salary requirements. Why these companies just don't post
what they will pay is beyond us. Tell prospective applicants
how much you are willing to pay and they can decide if the
position is worth trying for.
Until next time, stay Angry!

Busy week here at Anger Central. The number of postings
coming in this week was way up. The Angry Network Engineer
has also reported that our bandwidth usage has doubled over
the last month. Now if we could just get people to spend
money via Amazon or click on some of these links for Google
Nothing new on the job front, although one of the
contracting agencies did contact one of the Webmaster's
listed references. We would like to send a hearty "THANK
YOU" to "BQ". He was always a good director type. He took
care of his people and was always good with clients. Pity he
got shafted by the same company the Webmaster used to work
for. Well he is in a much better company now and doing quite
The Webmaster posted to a position right within walking
distance of the Anger Central Data Center. The Webmaster
applied the night it was posted to the HR department via
email. The HR rep was nice enough to reply the next morning.
She said that she had just been told the job was being
changed and wasn't sure what was happening. The Webmaster
replied thanking the HR rep and asking to be kept informed.
We have had a few telephone screenings, but nothing has come
of it. So disappointing. However, a good friend of the
Webmaster who has been out for quite a while is starting a
new job next week.
Good luck GA!!
On the immigration front for Mrs. Webmaster, the application
for the Removal of Conditions, (I-751 form), was returned to
the happy couple. There was a notice of error included. The
Webmaster read through it and found the problem. It seems
the Angry Accounts Payable clerk forgot to sign the check
for the $545 fee.
Mrs. Webmaster was not amused and the clerk has been exiled
to a gulag in Manchuria. ;)
The Angry Accounts Payable Intern has corrected this error
and the packet was sent out from the Anger Central Corporate
Mail room this morning.

The Webmaster met with yet another recruiter this week. This
one looked like he just finished high school last week. Oh
well, at least he hasn't become jaded yet. :)
Today is Super Bowl Sunday! Go Pats!
The Webmaster is working on his screech...err. screed on why
he won't vote for John McCain under any circumstances. If he
does become the nominee and is going up against either
Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, the Webmaster has decided
to do a write in. All three are major league disasters for
this country. More on this down the road.
Oh yes, we aren't overly thrilled with Mitt "The Flipper"
Mrs. Webmaster's I-751 form has been delivered to the USCIS
office in Vermont. We have not received notification of this
event as yet, and the check hasn't been cashed. The Angry
Immigration specialist suspects the envelope is sitting in a
bin somewhere under a pile of dirty laundry.

We had a few new postings that required a "Note from
Anger Central." We really went after the caveman who thinks
women are nothing more then property. We would strongly
recommend that you read some of the latest postings for our
responses. We haven't felt the need to write this many in a
long time. :)
We forgot to mention this on the last update. After several

As usual, the Angry Webmaster has not heard back about
the great job he applied for. One of his friends who's been
out for almost a year has two offers pending. We wish him
well and ask that he pass on some of those offers to the
Last week the Webmaster sent in the forms and evidence for
Mrs. Webmaster's "Removal of Conditions" on her green card.
Basically this is a renewal of her card good for 10 years.
We wonder how many trips to the Immigration office this will
take, along with how many times we need to bring the family
owned and operated politicians to bear.
The Webmaster is playing with new Webcam software. This
allows him to run a local web server which will provide both
stills and streaming video and sound. This camera is not
always on and is affected by whatever he happens to be
downloading at the moment. Feel free to check it out at
The Angry Webcam

moving around. It seems to have the habit of locking in on
his hands rather then his face.

Fred Thompson has announced that he is withdrawing from
the presidential campaign. All rise to welcome Hillary
Clinton, Empress and tyrant of the former United States.
We might be exaggerating a bit, but not by much. Hillary
Clinton is the probable nominee for the democrat party. If
she wins, she is going to begin nationalizing health care,
energy and anything else she can get her hooks in. We
predict that if Clinton or Obama get in with a democrat
Congress, we will be heading into a full blown economic
depression and our national security will be a joke. Get
ready for more terrorist attacks in this country.
If we seem a bit depressed, we are. The Webmaster is a bit
of a history buff and we see similarities between the United
States and the late stages of the Roman Empire. We hope
we're wrong, but we doubt it. Our advice now? Buy food,
medical supplies, guns and gold for the collapse of this
once great nation. :(
Meanwhile, we have removed the Fred08 donation button and
archived that section of our site.

Well, Anger Central would like to send a little message

Thanks a lot you pack of inbred mouth breathing morons! Why
don't you stick to mainlining tobacco and barbecue sauce and

in on the ballot as a protest to the jackasses who chose
some idiot as the nominee.

Time for some politics! Tomorrow South Carolinians go to
the polls. Anger Central reminds you to cast your vote for
Fred Thompson. Fred is the "Only" candidate in either party

where he considers the Constitution a "Living, Breathing

Fred Thompson as your choice to be the nominee of the
Republican party for the office of President of the United
States of America.

Just a couple of brief notes here.
First, we would like to offer our congratulations to
"Uncommitted" for doing so well in the Democrat Primary in
Michigan last night. ;)
Second, we received an email from someone who was
complaining about not finding a post he/she put in. We
replied to her with the link and explaining why we put it
where we did. We also included various methods for the
person could subscribe to our RSS
news feed. You have many options to view these feeds.
Firefox and Internet Explorer version 7 have built in
readers. You can also subscribe via
email as well.
We also recommended to the writer that it wasn't a good idea
to post anything to this site since the IT Department can
and does track things. (At least the places the Webmaster
has worked did this)
Hopefully we have helped this person get squared away and
he/she will be subscribing to the Anger Central News Feed in
the next day or so.
We've been getting a lot of stuff regarding fat people. Pity
a lot of this is in the form of a discussion or just plain
insults. Come on people!! Remember this is a site dedicated
to anger, not to discussion or insults.
Until next time...

It's been a quiet weekend. Only a couple of worthy rants
have come in. We have been playing around with the
news feed, seeing what we can do with it. We've noticed
that the feed stats are rather low. We suspect this is due
to people not clicking on the Feedburner logo. Please click
on it, or on the main feed banner on the main page. We like
to see how the stats go up. :)
Speaking of which, the data transfer stats are up this
month. The only question is, are we seeing new people or is
this just a bunch of bots surfing around for content?
As we announced earlier, we have created a page dedicated to
the election of
Fred Thompson to the office of president. It's rather
empty, but we will add to it as we can. Speaking of which,
it looks like Fred! has taken the gloves off. He clearly won
the debate in South Carolina last week, shocking pundits and
main stream media morons everywhere. We always suspected he
was just laying in wait for the proper time, and that time
arrived. We understand that Governor Huckaboob is still
trying to get the marks off from the beating he received. ;)
Still no news on the job search front. The Webmaster keeps
applying and the phone keeps not ringing. :(
Oh well, what can we do but try and show potential employers
the Webmaster is the best person they could possibly have
working for them?

Well, the primary in New Hampshire has been concluded
and a few surprises occurred. Turnout was at a record high,
Hillary Clinton managed to squeak out a win, Mitt Romney
lost again, and only a few people had the intellect to vote
for Fred Thompson. Well he didn't do a lot of campaigning up
here in any case, putting his resources to other states.
Irregardless of who won, Anger Central was very happy to see
such a large turnout. Now how many of these people
registered that day by stating they were thinking of moving
to New Hampshire... We'll never know.
Speaking of Fred!, we have created a

truly in the tank for him. :)

We have changed the Captcha system on our
Add page. This one was recommended by our hosting
service and it seems to work quite well. We've backed up the
old stuff for the time being and if this works as we expect,

with the updates to the site. So far it's looking good.
In Mrs. Webmaster news...
Mrs. Webmaster's Green Card is due for it's Removal of

Our first week of gainful unemployment. This sucks! The
Webmaster has filed for unemployment benefits. He is not
thrilled about that. The Webmaster has also been firing out
résumé's left, right and center. Oh well, we're sure there
is a ditch somewhere that needs a highly trained
professional to dig it. :/
The Webmaster was also given a nice belated Christmas gift.
The Angry Brother in-law gave him a 500GB SATA drive for the
development system. Pity the mounting rails don't fit the
drive. Looks like the Webmaster will be paying a visit to
the local "We Sell Computer Crap" store next week.
On the politics front, (You were thinking you might escape
this, didn't you?), the Iowa Caucus was held Tuesday.
Hillary Clinton was handed her head by the empty suit and
the ambulance chaser. We expect the nukes to start flying
any time now.
On the Republican side, a blogger put the results in a
rather succinct manner:
the F*** is wrong with you?" We particularly liked how
he referred to the republican voters as "corn-sucking
idiots." We would have used "corn snorting idiots ourselves.
Yes, the morons of Iowa selected the Huckaboob as their
nominee. Well Iowa's track record hasn't been to good of
late, and once people understand what an outright disaster
this clod is, he will be sent packing.
Our man Fred! came in third, just ahead of Sen. John

McCain. Considering that the media is doing all it can to
kill off Fred! Thompson's campaign, this is rather good. It
also appears there was a dirty trick that emanated from the
Romney campaign, but as of this posting it hasn't been
confirmed. This was the rumor that Fred! was going to quit
if he didn't do well in Iowa. A blatant lie by a blatant
The New Hampshire primary is next. We just had a debate and

thinking. (He thinks while all the other candidates just

While the others just jabbered on, Fred! provided detailed
answers for the voters to chew on.
In Anger Central News, we have been moving along with the
subtle changes to the web site. We haven't had any
complaints yet, (nor any kudos either), so we will assume
all is well.

Happy New Year!
Well the Webmaster has been a busy little beaver the last
few days. As you can see we have started our revamp of the
Anger Central web site. This is going to take a while since
we have a number of pages to update. So far things have been
going well. Everything looks like it's working as it should.
Of course, as you move through this site you will see both
old a new pages. Be patient, we will get it all done
- News: January 1, 2008
Well, another year has passed. Anger Central is now 10 years old. Who
would have thought we would survive this long. It has been an interesting
year for the Webmaster. He has been forced to take contract jobs rather then
a permanent full time job. As of December 28th, his last contract ended and
he is once again trying to find something else.
Meanwhile, a few site stats and systems updates.
We posted some 270 rants. We received over 1000 this year, but most were
absolutely worthless. They either had information that would allow the
tracking or identification of people, (Names, addresses, etc), were racist
in nature, or just made no sense what so ever.
Our site traffic was also down this year. We've been averaging less then 1GB
of data transfer a month and it looks like most of our visitors were
searchbots rather then actual people. We suspect this was done due to the
Webmaster scrubbing the site of any identifying information on him. Google
is NOT your friend when looking for a job. (Do no evil my A**! The
We've also made a few changes with our RSS feed. We now use Feedburner to
promote our site, mostly for the statistics as well as added configuration
options. We've also changed from our original RSS editor to a new one after
some trial and error. This one is open source and appears to still be under
development and updating.
Another change was the addition of a new icon to represent Anger Central. If
you pay any attention to the news, you may have seen this tool. He has
become known as Islamic Rage Boy. We thought his picture, with him in full
scream, sort of fit in with the philosophy of Anger Central. (Pure rage with
little common sense) Our hope is the IRB, (Islamic Rage Boy), doesn't decide
to strap a bomb on his chest and go blow up innocent people. He can blow
himself up for all we care though. ;)
We have received a number of postings or emails complaining about our
defense of President G.W. Bush. We have decided that Pres. Bush no longer
deserves our support. From our point of view, once he was re-elected, he
decided to study the Way of the Stupid.
Anger Central has also come out to openly support the candidacy of Fredrick
Dalton Thompson for the office of President of the United States. We feel he
would best support the Constitution of the United States as well as defend
this country from Terrorist attacks, as well as our sovereignty. Our views
on why we made this decision can be found on Why we support Fred Thompson.
We've had a few complaints regarding our political views here. Not to worry,
we have no plans to turn this into another political blog. As to our views,
we freely admit we are rather conservative in our outlook with a large
helping of small “L” libertarianism. Not the Ron Paul version, but the
version of much less government interference with a strong helping of
slaughtering our enemies wherever they may be.
When we get posts of a political nature that we don't agree with, We will
respond with a Note from Anger Central. In most cases, we won't censor the
postings, although we don't promise to actually put them up either. If
they're just another case of BDS screeching, head over to the Huffington
post or the Daily Kos and post there. You'll get a much friendlier
Now, what is in store for Anger Central in 2008? We're doing a minor site
redesign. You'll see part of this on the navigation footer at the bottom of
each page. We're also doing a minor redesign of the home page as well as all
the primary pages on the site. We're adding pretty buttons and trying to
make navigation a bit easier. Unlike 2003, we aren't planning on blowing
away the entire site and starting fresh. If something doesn't work, please
let us know asap.
We're also going to look into the Captcha field on our add page. We
understand the fonts aren't very visible and we have been researching ways
to make it a bit easier to read. We instituted the Captcha to try and cut
back on the amount of spam we were getting. It definitely achieved this
goal, (along with another addition that blocks out URL's in the submission
form), but we have received a number of complaints on this feature.
We're also going to be working on our ad system. We know you don't like it,
and frankly we aren't overly thrilled with it either. However we do need to
pay for our hosting service and Internet connection fee.
On a personal note, Mrs. Webmaster's Green card is due for it's removal of
conditions. Since our friends at the USCIS decided it would improve
services, they have astronomically raised the processing fees. We're also
looking at contacting a lawyer to go over the forms we will be sending in.
Mrs. Webmaster's green card is in her maiden name, along with her passport.
However all her other documentation, drivers license, social security card,
etc. are in her married name.
Because of this, we have had difficulties in getting her social security
card, which is marked “For work only” changed to have that stamp removed. It
doesn't help that the local Social Security office is staffed by morons.
(This has been confirmed by an employee of a different SS office who
assisted us with Mrs. Webmaster's original problem of two valid and separate
SS#) This will cost us money we can't afford, but we need to get this taken
The Webmaster has completed his classes and is going to begin studying for
his MCSA certifications. The Webmaster is a bit concerned since he has never
tested well in the past. As a case in point, many years ago, when he took
his drivers education class, he was given a test at the very beginning. This
was a “Let's see what you already know” test. He got one answer wrong.
At the end of the course, he was given the exact same test. This time it
would count towards his grade. He got three questions wrong. This was still
a passing grade, however, the instructor, who stated he had never seen this
situation before, offered to let the Webmaster use his first test as his
final. Not being a complete fool, the Webmaster took the offer. ;)
Somehow we don't think the Webmaster will be able to duplicate that set of
circumstances, so it will be study, study and more study.
So, there you are. Another year has past and another one is coming down the
pike. We hope that you will continue to visit our site and post your rage
and anger to us. (The hate you can keep thank you
Thank you from the crew here at Anger Central and have a
