The webmaster was ICQ'd this morning by a submitter asking if we take
down rants. The general policy is no. However she was very worried because
someone tracked back the rant to her. We do not remove rants, however in
this case we just made a few minor changes to the rant in question. We
changed the name of the company she identified to a more generic name. As I
read the rant in question, I didn't see any real legal problem for her. No
foul language was used, nor was she insulting to the company in question.
She was just blowing off steam at a bunch of lusers who are to impatient to
waiting their turn.
One thing. I told the person in question that there was no way to trace back
the message to her. However, now that she contacted me directly, overpriced
greed driven lawyers would be able to pull a trace from the webmasters
system if he was ordered to provide it from the courts.

Well we have had one response to our question about selling Anger
Central merchandise. Needless to say we are disappointed in this. Hopefully
we will get more requests.

The rebuilding of this site is progressing...slowly. We're still trying
to develop a style and graphics that will reflect our web site.

Anger Central is getting more and more traffic of late. We can't see why
this is happening, but we aren't going to complain at all about it!
Anger Central has received numerous rants over the last year about America's
Best Contacts. We have decided that 18 rants is enough. The posters have
nothing good to say about them and they have said it. Since the general consensus
is this company sucks boulders through straws, we aren't going to post
anything more about them unless it's really good.
Our redesign is going slowly but surely. The webmaster is playing with style
sheets now. Pity this works better in Internet Explorer than in Netscape.
Well hopefully the Mozilla project will
be finished soon.
- October 30, 1999
Well, Anger Central has finally started work on our redesigned web site.
Most of the work is in development, but we have put up a new Company
Store page. We have decided to end our relationships with Beyond.com and
Reel.com and stay exclusively with Amazon.com. We feel they provide better
service and products. Besides, we haven't made a penny from the other two.
We are also looking at selling T-shirts, coffee mugs and other cool stuff.
However we haven't decided if it's worth the money it will take to set this
up. If enough people show an interest we will start looking into it.
Also, with our redesign, we are looking for new graphics and logos. If you
have any thoughts, or would like to create something for us please let us
know. To contact us just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are looking for donations, since we are poor/cheap bastards. ;-)

The webmaster has completed his civic duty. No more jury duty. The
webmaster had to sit through 4 jury selections, but wasn't picked for any of
them. 2 were criminal, (and they were so obviously guilty it was pathetic),
and 2 were civil. Now we don't have to worry about this for another 3 years.
- September 23, 1999
Well it's happened. The webmaster has been legally notified of a horrible
thing. He is to report to the local superior court for...JURY DUTY!!! The webmaster
has to report for jury duty every Monday for the entire month of October.

well the server problem was corrected. However we still had a problem
uploading the last batch of updates. It took us a while to figure out why.
It turns out there was one file that caused the server to choke so badly it
would drop the connection to Wave Wizard
Internet. The webmaster deleted that file and the update was successful.
- September 5, 1999
There was a small problem with the web server so our normal update
didn't function correctly. Nothing was lost, we just had to wait until they
fixed the server.

Well Fans, Deb spotted the last bit of news and I'm not going to hear
the end of it now. Perhaps I can sneak a picture of her and post it to our
site. What do you think of that Deb?? ;-B

The webmaster has been extremely busy. The company he works for uses MCI
WorldCom as its WAN provider. Needless to say we have been down for the last
week. We finally got all our divisions running on back up connections, but
as far as we are concerned, WorldCom SUCKS!!
The webmaster made the mistake of showing this site to a few people in the
company he works for. They are now threatening to send us huge rants about
the company we work for. Go right ahead Deb, I'm waiting for them. ;->

Anger Central received some interesting email from a BBC production
company expressing some interest in our little web site. Of course we have
been down this road before and nothing has come of it. Still, a little free
publicity is nice. The web address is www.worldofwonder.net
if you are interested in looking.
Well this has been a fun weekend...NOT!! The Webmaster ordered the Microsoft
Windows98 Second edition. it arrived Thursday and he installed it. Friday he
formatted his drive and spent all day yesterday rebuilding his system. No
rants were lost as he was able to do a complete back up of his email and the
website. Because of this, there may be a delay in the weekly updates.
- August 1, 1999
Anger Central has added a Questions and Answers page.
This was added because we are tired of answering the same damn question over

Anger Central is now selling Electronics via Amazon.com. Please check
out the Company Store
- July 12, 1999
The crew at Anger Central is on vacation! It was decided that a vacation
was needed when the webmaster started eating his manager's tie at his other
job. We will be taking a week off and going to a lake to shoot some fish.

Angry.net received a message from the owner of a company that was slammed here.
The original rant came in over 2 years ago, and the webmaster had to look for it to
refresh his memory. The odd thing about this, is the domain name was listed as being
registered last February. It appears that the original holder of the domain may have
turned it back to Internic and that a new company has taken it over. Upon confirmation of
this we will write an addendum to the post indicating that this domain is now owned by a

It seems that a lot of visitors to this site think that the views listed here are
those of Anger Central. THEY ARE NOT! Please stop sending me complaints about what is
posted here and whining that these are my views.
- May 9, 1999
Grrrrr! Now I'M ANGRY. Since those
2 psychotics decided to shoot up a school in Littleton Colorado, all the copycats have
decided to make their presence known. Now it's affected the Webmasters own family. Please
read the Rant from the
Angry Webmaster for details

It seems we had a few more server problems and the webmaster was accidentally
locked out of the site by Wave Wizard Internet. Because the webmaster has been so busy, he
hasn't bothered to fix it until now. We have about 40 posts to add. Hopefully we will be
caught up this weekend.
It looks like we have our search engine back up and running as well.
- April 22, 1999
Well as some of you have noticed, I haven't done any updates for the last couple
of weeks. We had a server problems, and we have been to busy working on other things to
get it back to normal. As of today, the server is back and we will be resuming our
updates. We have over 70 new rants to post so it will take a while.
Thanks for being patient.
- February 20, 1999
Well it looks like the search page has bombed out. Wave Wizard Internet upgraded
the web server to IIS 4 a few weeks ago. I'll need to do a little reading on it to find
out why it's misbehaving. Now to see if all that money I spent on NT classes was worth

The Internet Service provider that hosts Anger Central, XTDL, Inc. has been
dissolved. The owners have formed a new company, Wave Wizard Internet Inc. The webmaster is
still working part time for them. Also, Wavewizard.com
now has 56K lines. Now we can upload the site at twice the speed!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
And Happy Birthday to Angry.Net! It was one year ago today that the domain name
ANGRY.NET was registered with Internic. If only we had known what we were getting into.
In the last year, Anger Central has had some 11,000 visitor and add some 2500 rants, raves
and flat out screams of rage to the site. The crew at Anger Central would like to thank
all the people who are so furious at things, and decided to share them with the world, (as
opposed to climbing on a roof with a rifle). The webmaster is looking at rebuilding this
site, but doesn't have all the time he would like to just sit down and design it. We would
also love to move the rants to a database file, but we just don't have the time to sit
down and learn how to create one and tie it in to our web site. Let it be know we will be
working on that issue too.
So thanks again and stay mad at everyone...but us of course. ;-)
