The Angry Systems Administrator

Welcome to the Anger Central News and Information page. This page is designed to keep our readers informed on the goings on here in the Anger Central corporate offices.

On the right is a picture of our Lord and Master, the Angry Webmaster. A nice and stable looking sort isn't he?

On the left is the Angry Systems Administrator. It's interesting that he bears a striking similarity to Doctor Strangelove.

December 29, 2019

Greetings all. We hope you had a good Christmas. The Webmaster did not. He worked both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. It didn't help that he was also sick as a dog and has an ear infection, an early Christmas present from his Manager. The Webmaster is also working New Years Eve, although someone else is covering for New Years Day.

We are coming up on the New Year and the Webmaster is preparing for the annual rotation of the news section. It should be completed by next weekend. Looking at the archives, it's hard to believe that Anger Central has been up and running for over 20 years now. How things have changed over the decades.

So, what will 2020 bring to the table? Obviously an election, an impeachment, and a whole host of new things. At the top of the list, the Webmaster is planning to see the new Star Wars movie. He's already read the synopsis and so isn't to worried about spoilers. (He actually enjoys knowing how things turn out. It lets him take in the whole movie and not worry about missing anything)

Until next time, in the New Year...

Stay Angry!

December 22, 2019

Greetings all. Well life sucks for the Webmaster. His manager was kind enough to give him a nice cold and he's been feeling like crap all week. To top all this off, the Webmaster is also working Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, late shifts on both days.

The good news is that his Christmas shopping is done. he's not doing any since he won't be seeing any family. :)
The Christmas Spirit left the Webmaster a long time ago.

The Webmaster has also heard that the new Star Wars movie has been released. He hasn't seen it yet, (He's not stupid enough to fight the crowds). However, he does know the plotlines and how it ends. Thank you Wikipedia. In the spirit of Christmas and the fact I don't care if you hate spoilers, Rey is Emperor Palpatines grand daughter. Oh yes, Palpatine survived the destruction of the Second Death Star. Oh, Hux is working for the Rebel Alliances.

There, hate me yet? :D

Merry Xmas

Har Har Har.

December 15, 2019

Greetings all. The Webmaster has finally used up all his paid time off for the year. (He can carry 40 hours over to the next year). His Real World coworkers have informed him that he will use 40 hours of PTO per quarter. The response was "It won't matter, he will still have 4 weeks worth to use up." This is due to all the comp time he accrued last year.

The Webmaster also had to go in for his license renewal and got one that is "Real ID" qualified. He is not happy and is expecting his first "Your Papers Please" stop any day now.

We had three new rants come in this week, one of them directed at the Webmaster. It seems the ranter isn't happy with some of the Notes from Anger Central that have been put at the foot of his/hers/its rants. Oh well.

The Webmaster will be working Christmas Eve, Christmas day and New years eve. He is looking forward to not shopping for Christmas presents since he won't see anyone other then the Angry Girlfriend, who doesn't care about Christmas.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

December 8, 2019

Greetings all! Well, it seems we forgot to push updates last week. Oh well, these things happen. The Webmaster was working last weekend at his Real World Job, doing all the Black Friday stuff. Happily, the expected problems didn't occur, which made everyone, including the new CEO very happy.

The Webmaster was also off again this week. The first two days were his normal rotation since he covered the weekend shift. The other three days were comp time. We found out that he still has two more PTO days he has to use up before the end of the year, so he has another long weekend scheduled this week.

Not surprising, but we had nothing new come in this week. Probably a number of our readers and posters are recovering from the Black Friday shopping and curb stomps that come with that day. We did have a couple come in during the Thanksgiving week, and they will go up shortly.

We also had two large Climate Change storms earlier this week. The Webmaster was angry of course. He had to get out early ON HIS DAYS OFF to clear out the driveway so that the Angry Girlfriend (Formally the Angry Wife), could get to work. The Snowblower worked fine. The Webmaster has also decided, after almost 20 years, that trying to get the damn thing past two cars in a narrow driveway sucks. He bought a cover for the damn thing and when a storm is coming, He's going to put it right at the front door, ready to go. The cover will keep the snow off it and he will be able to clear the snow away much easier.

Regarding the snow, Hey Greta! Greta Thunberg! We had over 15 inches of Climate change, Here's a shovel. Get to work.

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry!

November 24. 2019

Greetings all. As expected, the Webmaster's return to his real world job was the equivalent of diving head first into a roaring dumpster fire. The Webmaster's company is preparing for the Black Friday sales events, (The Webmaster works for a hosting service) and that means getting the infrastructure ready for the massive increases in traffic. To top it off? The Webmaster volunteered to work Black Friday, forgetting that one of the clients is "Really Big!" and has serious issues with their code. Oh well.

On the rants side of things, we had a couple come in. Nothing major. The Webmaster will be off Thursday destroying turkeys, stuffing, cranberry sauce and other assorted edible items.

Yesterday, the Webmaster had a visit from Comcast. He has been working with a company called Bill Fixers to see about getting his cable bill lowered. They were able to knock a few dollars a month off, however, the Webmaster now has an Xfinity TV box running with no television attached to it. He has to have this running so Comcrap can see it and know the tech did his job. Hey! Comcast! Yeah, he did his job, far more then was expected!! The webmaster is toying with the idea of getting a small tv for his home office, but needs to figure out where the heck to put it.

Until next time...

Stay Angry! (And keep the Pepto handy)

November 17, 2019

Greetings all. Well, the Webmaster's vacation is now over and he will have to return to his Real World Job tomorrow. Sadly, he didn't win the lottery, so he can't retire to Bora Bora or something.

We had one rant come in this week, ragging on the Federal Trade Commission. The Webmaster has also been busy on the Blog, posting two and three times a day. Of course, not that he has to go back to work, he is reverting to once or twice a day with prewritten posts. He's also working on Black Friday and also that weekend.

And...his drivers license is coming up for renewal and he has to decide if he wants to go the Real ID route or not. If he does, he needs to go into the dreaded DMV to get it done.

The coup attempt Impeachment hearings of President Trump have begun and it looks like it's going to be yet another Democrat Fiasco. The Webmaster is following it on the blog of course. Comments should be over there for the relevant sections. Ranting and raving one way or the other is quite welcome here of course.

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry!

November 10, 2019

Greetings all. Well, the Webmaster is moving into week 2 of his vacation from his real world job. He was heard commenting that he's getting more RWJ email in the last week then he's seen in the last month prior to his vacation. (He has an app on is phone), Of course, he hasn't responded to any of it and his Out of Office message is going strong.

We had a number of new rants come in this week, and the Webmaster updated te site locally, then went back to achieving his primary goal of achieving absolutely nothing at all. He did get to try out his new winter coat this week. It's been surprisingly cold this week with a few snow flurries. We've been wondering when the flames of the burning Earth were going to get here and warm us up. You know, due to Man caused Global Warming and Climate change.

The Webmaster did see the new Terminator movie. He liked it and had no issues with it. They did set it up for a potential sequel, but from what we've been reading, it looks like the movie is bombing badly, so no sequel.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!!

November 3, 2019

Greetings one and all, Well, once again the Webmaster is on a well deserved vacation from his Real World Job. He will be out for the next TWO weeks. He and most of his team have a great deal of Paid Time Off they have to use up by the end of the year, with this year's record holder being...The Angry Webmaster!! The joke that came out of the scheduling meeting was "AW, next year you will take one week off each quarter, not that it will matter. You will still end up needing to burn off 4 weeks vacation at the end of the year." (The Webmaster did a lot of extra days with comp time and barely touched his PTO budget)

Speaking of our hero, he went to see the new Terminator movie yesterday, Or that was the plan. It didn't quite go the way he intended and he didn't see the movie. You won't believe what a boneheaded maneuver he managed to pull off that caused him to miss the movie.

We didn't get in any new rants this week. which is somewhat surprising considering the antics of people and political figures worldwide. Oh well.

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry!

October 28, 2019

Greetings all. It was a quiet week at Anger Central. We only had one post come in from a non-animal lover. It seems he has a thing about bears.

The Webmaster is now taking the Anger Central Company vehicle in for it's 100K checkup. There's another $500+ he doesn't want to spend.

Speaking of $500, the insurance company for the Angry Girlfriend is trying to reach her regarding the horrific hit and run collusion by an Amazon delivery driver. (Claim's paid and the car has been repaired) The insurance company is now going after the Amazon driver/Amazon and needs to speak with the Angry Girlfriend. The problem is that their office hours are the same as hers, and she's not comfortable speaking them alone. We're working out a time we can both be available for her to talk with them. She didn't see anything, but the whole thing was caught on video. It's open and shut.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

October 20, 2019

Greetings all. Well, the Webmaster's vacation is over and he will be returning to his Real World Job tomorrow. He has another two weeks off next month. He's also on the Weekend shift next this week, so expect delays in updates.

Speaking of his Real World Job, his Team Lead is now the global manager of the Webmaster's department. While he doesn't expect any changes locally, the Webmaster is looking forward to the shock and horror of the other groups around the world. One of the things that has really angered the new manager, (Who goes to the range on occasion with the Webmaster), is just how much work the other centers do in comparison with the one in the United States.

Our team is probably the third out of four in staffing but we are handling about 40% of the tickets that come in. (Our hero, the Webmaster handles fully half of those tickets as well) The Webmaster fully expects massive casualties in the other centers as they find out that they're actually expected to work tickets and when needed, call the clients to assist them. Sucks to be them.

On the rants front, we had one new one come in this week. Something about gaming, so nothing the Webmaster commentated on. (He doesn't play computer games much anymore) As mentioned, expect delays to the regularly scheduled postings next week.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

October 13, 2019

Greetings one and all. Well, the Webmaster is taking the week off from his Real World Job. He has a total of three weeks paid time off he has to use by the end of the year or he will lose it. Interestingly, the Webmaster was taking time off all through the year, but it was all compensation time for covering oddball situations. One of his coworkers said, when the Webmaster's real world work team was figuring out the schedules,

"You will take 1 week of each quarter and you will STILL have to take  weeks off to burn up your PTO!"

The Webmaster is also planning on 2 weeks off next month.

Over on the Blog, the Webmaster wrote a review of an Amazon Prime series called Goliath. It seems he was rather disappointed with Season 3.

We had 2 new rants come in this week, one going off on the WWE. Since no one here cares one wit about wrestling, we just put it up without comment.

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry!!

October 6, 2019

Greetings everyone. Well, the summer is over, the leaves are changing color, the Angry Facilities manager has removed the air conditioning units from the windows and the Democrats are screaming Impeachment. It's actually been rather quiet here, with only two rants coming in.

The webmaster is going to be attempting some minor home repairs this weekend, and we are expecting complete and utter disaster. There are people who should not be let anywhere near tools and the Webmaster is one of them.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

September 29, 2019

Greetings everyone. It's been an interesting week in the real world. The Webmaster real world job is evolving, probably for the better for the Webmaster. The weather is cooling off and due to the expected high temperatures due to global warming and climate change, the Webmaster bought a new winter coat rated for -60. :)

We had one new rant come in this week. Nothing special. By the way, We're moving over more and more to MeWe in expectation of being banned by Faceplant. That will mostly be for the Blog of course, but you never know.

Until next time...

Stay really annoyed. :D

September 23, 2019

Greetings everyone. As announced last week, we're a bit delayed. The Webmaster had the weekend duty at his Real World Job and wasn't able to push the weekly, (sort of), updates. We had three new rants come in, nothing to special or original, although one of them was a bit questionable.

In other news, the Webmaster has started preparations for the massive climate change and the attendant Global Warming announced by the Progressives of the Church of Global Warming. He just ordered a new winter coat rated to -60F. :)

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

September 15, 2019

Greetings everyone. We didn't put a post up last week for 2 reasons. First, nothing new came in Second, the Webmaster couldn't be bothered to do his job. (Lazy bastard). This week, people made up for it. We have three new posts that came in, one we question, but put up anyway.

The Webmaster has the weekend duty next week so updates will be delayed in all probability.

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry!

September 1, 2019

Greetings one and all. It's Labor Day weekend were most people, instead of laboring, goof off. Anger Central is no exception. We're doing as little as possible this weekend.

We had three new rants come in this week, all of them fairly good quality. (Generally proper punctuation, spelling and not looking like the rantings of a meth head or crack addict.

The Webmaster and the Angry Girlfriend went to Mt. Washington last week. They lucked out. Visibility was 80 miles and the temperature at the peak was about 45 degrees with a 15 MPH wind speed. Many pictures were taken, however we won't be posting them here. (For obvious reasons)

Have a great and safe Labor Day!

Stay Angry!

August 24, 2019

Greetings people. Well, the new water and gas lines are installed, and the Anger Central Primary Dwelling is still standing. Considering that the water company spent a good 6 hours trying to pull out the old feeder pipe and pull the new one into the house, we're surprised. There is one heck of a mess in the basement and the Angry Girlfriend is not happy.

It seems we forgot to post the updates last week. Oops! Well, the Webmaster was rather preoccupied.

Speaking of the Angry Girlfriend, the Webmaster is taking her on a day trip to Mount Washington. She wants to ride the Cog railway. Who is he to deny her the simply pleasures in life?

Also, the police identified the jerk who hit the Angry Girlfriends car. We don't know what the outcome will be, but we're assuming she's been fired, and will lose her license. The police posted a screen capture of the video showing the crash, the driver looking a the damage and then driving off. (Yes, the Angry Webmaster has a copy of the footage)

It seems that the local residents are quite familiar with that nitwit's driving habits. It took less than 6 hours for her to be identified. Well, that means the Angry Girlfriend will be getting her deductible back. Some friends at the Webmaster's Real World Job suggested she sue Amazon for pain and suffering over the damage suffered to her car, and all the troubles she had to endure filing the insurance claim and the police report.. I suggested suing for $10 million dollars. (It's not like Amazon can't afford it)

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry

August 11, 2019

Greetings everyone. It's been an interesting week for the Webmaster. He will be taking next Wednesday off from his Real World job so he may monitor the gas and water companies running new feeder lines into the Anger Central Primary Dwelling. The current lines are over 100 years old.

We seem to have attracted a troll suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. He posted several screeds, each one diving further and further over the edge. We finally had to put a note in that his posts wouldn't be accepted on the main site any longer and invited the moron to post in the comments section on the blog. The Troll was also notified that if he came up with something original it would be considered.

We also had a post come in regarding killing ICE agents. That was rejected. We're close enough to a full blown civil war in this country that egging things along will be considered a "Really bad idea." The Progressives who like to make these threats tend to think that violence is analog, and you can dial it up and down like turning a knob.

The other side of the political fence, the ones with all the guns and actual military training and experience, understand just how bad it would be and try to talk these loons off the edge. They tend to see violence as binary, as in on or off. Currently, for them, it's in the off position, where we would all like it to stay. That means the people on the center and right tend to want to talk, enjoy the game and have some BBQ.

If the switch is thrown into the on position, then it becomes "Screw it! Kill them all!" There is no middle of the road here and they know it, which is why they are trying to keep that switch in the OFF, (Preferred), position.

In other news, the Webmaster will be doing the weekend shift this week so posting may be delayed from the usual Sunday release date.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!! (But no violence please)

August 4, 2019

Greetings everyone. It can be said that last week was a nonstop dumpster fire for the Webmaster at his real world job. However, as usual, the Webmaster persevered, overcame and conquered the issues!

The Angry Girlfriend went in for a physical and a bunch of tests, and it looks like she's healthy as a horse. (Which she is actually afraid of) Now she wants to take a ride on the Mt Washington Cog Railway. We're just working out when to go since it is a 2 1/2 hour drive there from the Anger Central Primary Dwelling.

We had a couple of rants come in this week, and you can find them on our RSS feeds. Othewrwise, it's been fairly quiet.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!!

July 28, 2019

Greetings all. It's been an eventful week for the Webmaster. He worked last weekend and had several comp days, so he was off this week from his Real World Job. However, he has been dealing with the Angry Girlfriends automotive issues. Her car was sideswiped by an Amazon delivery driver. The moron then drove off.

The Angry Girlfriend was really angry when she saw the damage. Worse, she wasn't even in the car. It was parked outside of her job. So sad, to bad...for the delivery driver. The business had a security camera and the Webmaster got a copy of it and sent it to the Angry Girlfriend's insurance company. The estimates have been done and she has a rental waiting when the body shop starts working on it.

Not the restful week the Webmaster expected.

We had several rants come in. We also noticed that there may have been a problem with last weeks upload, hopefully now corrected.

Until Next time...

Stay Angry!

July 21, 2019

Greetings one and all! Are you all enjoying the "OMYGOD, GLOBAL WARMING!! We're ALL going to DIE!!!" heat wave currently affecting the northeastern United States? We sure as hell are not, and have the Air Conditioners set to cryogenic suspension.

Yesterday was the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. That was the pinnacle of America, and shortly afterwards, the Progressive Moonbat left decided that instead of continuing, they would rather use it to put Americans of African decent back on the Welfare plantation so they would vote for more Democrats. Where would we be now if Ted Kennedy had gone to prison for murder instead of back to the Senate? Probably in a better place.

The Webmaster is working this weekend, however we only had one rant come in, and he had time to push this update. The Angry Systems Administrator is going to be shopping for a new TV for the Webmaster. For some reason, when he plugged his new Amazon Firestick into his 13 year old HD TV, it worked once and then all forms of streaming stopped. Even plugging the old firestick back in didn't help and his Dish Joey, which is still working for normal Dish viewing, won't stream Netflix. Netflix loads, but when he tries to watch something, he gets a blank screen. We think something happened to the HDMI circuit. It's time to replace the TV anyway and the Angry Systems Administrator will be doing some shopping tomorow.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

July 14, 2019

Greetings everyone. It has been a quiet week on the Rants front this week. All we saw was spam and crap. This is due, no doubt to people going on vacations or getting ready for the mass suicide charge into Area 51.

On immigration front, (Legal that is), the Angry Significant Other, (Formally Mrs. Webmaster), paid a visit to the Immigration office. Her Green card expired last December and they stamped it with an extension good through August. Her new green card still hasn't arrived yet, and the current wait time is 13.5 months. This means she would be out of status before the bureaucrats removed their thumbs and processed her paperwork.

Instead of putting another extension on her card, they took it and put a one year extension stamp into her passport. If the Angry Attorny's estimate is right, she should have her new card sometime in late September or early October. (Damn Democrats!)

The Webmaster will be working next weekend, so updates may be delayed.

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry!

July 7, 2019

Greetings all! We hope you had a great Independence day and that all your fingers remain attached to your hands.

We had 4 new rants come in this week, three of them in just the last 18 hours. We gather that people are coming back from their vacations.

The Former Mrs. Webmaster, and current Angry Significant Other is currently going through the process of renewing her green card. (She did NOT hop, skip and jump across the border and demand free stuff) This process was started a year ago, and she has already had one extension added to her current green card. The Webmaster reviewed the USCIS site and found that the processing times for replacement cards is running at 13.5 months, and her current extension expires in August.

Previously, the Webmaster would simply go online and schedule an appointment for the Angry S.O., but as of last January, they no longer accept walk ins. The Webmaster tried emailing them and all he got back was a canned response. Finally he tried again last week and this time they scheduled an appointment for the Angry S.O. Hopefully they will either expedite her renewal or give her a 6 month extension.

As to why this is happening, it seems that the resources used for walk in appointments are now being used to deal wit the huge levels of immigration fraud. Understandable but really, this is not helpful for those who are here legally.

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry!

June 30, 2019

Greetings all! Well, this was an interesting week off for the Webmaster. Wednesday, as he was settling in and preparing for a nice day of binge watching Netflix and Amazon Prime, when his phone rang and his Team Leader asked him to come in. It seems that the office was short staffed and other offices had dumped a ton of unexpected work on them. He was offered an extra 2 days off, so of course, he took it. The current joke among his coworkers is that the Webmaster may end up losing vacation days but will actually have taken for more days off. :D

On the rants front, we had one come in. Otherwise, it was rather quiet.

The Webmaster and the Angry Office are preparing for the 4th of July festivities, and have laid in enough ordnance to end all life on several planets. (That is going to be one heck of a fireworks display no doubt)

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

June 24, 2019

Greetings everyone. The weekly update was delayed due to the Webmaster working the weekend shift at his Real World Job. He's off the rest of this week and will be fiddling around with things. (Much to the consternation of the Angry Systems Administrator)

Posting was light this week, other then spam, probably due to the end of school and vacations starting up.

Other then that, not much else happening.

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry!

June 16, 2019

Greetings everyone. It was a quiet week here at Anger Central. We had no new rants come in this week, which was a bit of surprise. We think this is due to all the students from Oberlin College losing their computer access privileges after their crushing defeat in court.

The Webmaster's real world job has scheduled out the weekend shifts as well as the holiday coverage calendars until the end of the year. The Webmaster will be working on Black Friday and Christmas Day again this year, and will receive extra days off. This is leading to a bit of a problem for the Webmaster. He hasn't used any of his paid time off and he needs to burn it up or lose it. (He can carry one week over into the new year)

This is a standard problem for most of the American team. We work while the centers in other countries like to not work and go on "Holiday" at the drop of a vowel. Since the Europeans like to disappear for weeks at a time, not to mention  any number of make believe "National Holidays", it's usually left to the American team to pick up the load...as usual.


Until next time...

Stay Angry!

June 9, 2019

Greetings all. We hope you have been enjoying the summer weather. For the Webmaster, at his real world job, he's been dealing with one dumpster fire after another, culminating in last Friday's conflagration. He was supposed to go to his real world job later in the day, since he had a project that was going to run past his normal shift. The problem began when one person was taking time off, one person called in and said he would be late due to sick kiditus, one person was scheduled for the weekend and would be coming in late anyway, and one got stuck in traffic.

That meant no one would be in the office at the beginning of the shift, As always, the Webmaster took one, (In the head), for the team and went in early. (His normal time), fully expecting to work 12-14 hours. Well the project turned out to be nothing major and he left at his usual time. Still, he was the only one there for the better part of an hour.

On the rants side of the house, we had 2 new ones come in. Nothing to write home about.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

June 2, 2019

Greetings all. It was a slow week here at Anger Central. We took Monday off of course and achieved our goals of achieving nothing.

We had 2 new rants come in, one from our psychotic fan from Antifa. He made the usual insults and threats of violence against anyone who supports President Trump. The Webmaster replied in a Note from Anger Central. Basically, these moonbats are just a pack of cowards and bullies. They never go after anyone, or pull their usual garbage anywhere that might have people that are armed.

The Webmaster will be working very late this Friday night at his Real World Job. He is doing some work for a client notorious for ignoring shift changes or doing anything that might be construed as "Efficient". Oh well, the Webmaster gets to go into work late and an extra day off.

Until Next time...

Stay Angry!

May 26, 2019

Greetings everyone. This is the American Memorial weekend, where we remember those who gave their lives in service to this nation.

We had two new rants come in, one referring to teenage girls.

The Angry groundskeeper quit and the Webmaster was forced to cut the grass at the Anger Central Primary dwelling. It's a good thing that loser quit, or the webmaster would have fired him. It looks like he went full Green New Deal. The internal combustion engine powered lawnmowers weren't working. The Webmaster had to borrow one from the Angry Brother In-Law. Interestingly, it was a battery powered model, the batteries being recharged by coal fired power plants. The Webmaster is researching them now and may just scrap the old gas powered ons, not because he's green, but due to his being tired of dealing with gas mowers.

Until Next time...

Stay Angry!

May 19, 2019

Greetings one and all. It's been a busy week for the Webmaster in his Real World Job. A major client went "Live" Friday, and was successfully launched. To be honest, we expected a crash and burn, but everything came up as expected. There was much happiness and joy amongst the Webmaster's team.

In other news, The Webmaster saw Avengers: Endgame this week and last night saw John Wick, Parabellum. He needs to do some reviews on the blog at some point.

We had just one new rant come in this week. It was from a screaming moonbat. We recommended that he avoid the use of recreational pharmaceuticals prior to posting. (Yes, it was that over the top)

Until next time...

Stay Angry!!

May 12, 2019

Greetings one and all. Well, the Webmaster forgot he was on duty this weekend at his Real World Job, however, he had already laid in a supply of blog posts. Also, in the main site, we only had 2 new posts come in, one of which arrived right after we pushed last weeks updates.

Microsoft has released their latest patch and it is currently grinding through the Webmaster's primary development system. We fully expect it to go horribly wrong so he is also making sure his backups are in place and ready to go..

The good thing about the Webmaster's forgetfulness, is he's going to be able to see the new Avengers movie without a massive crowd to deal with. He's planning on going with the Angry Brother Inlaw since he's also off the early part of next week. Reviews to come. (We already know how it goes, we like reading spoilers)

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry!

May 5, 2019

Greetings everyone. Well, it's been a busy week for Anger Central. We had three new rants come in, one of them complaining about the tv show, Game of Thrones. We do watch the series, but aren't fanatical about it.

Another thing that happened, and we din't pay any attention to, was the running of the Kentucky Derby. It seems that the winner was disqualified, the first time this has happened in the history of the race. I suspect some very important people not known for their close ties to the law are rather annoyed right now. (The race was given to the second place horse who I think was considered a long shot)

We also had an interesting technical issue happen yesterday. Our Firefox web browsers suddenly lost the use of ALL their plugins and themes. The Angry Systems Administrator wrote up a short blurb on the Blog yesterday. It seems the moronic moonbats at Mozilla let a mission critical certificate expire resulting in all the browsers breaking. Not cool people! Everything was restored a few hours later.

Greetings and salutations. (Yes, we're feeling a bit "Uppity" at the moment) The Webmaster went out with some coworkers from his real world job and hit a gun range. They decoded to rent a machinegun, (A SCAR 16 to be accurate), and put some fully automatic rounds down range. This was the first time the Webmaster had ever handled a fully automatic rifle. He handled it well, and promptly noticed what many in the military already knew. Rock and Roll may be fun, but outside of 50 yards, it ain't all that accurate. It's also damned expensive. (We had to buy the range's ammo, not use our own, and they charge twice the going rate) The Webmaster has decided to stick with Semi-auto.

We had two new rants come in, one from a screaming moonbat who decided to take a shot at the Webmaster. The Webmaster basically told him that he wasn't worth the trouble or energy to bother with. (In other words, he called him less than nothing)

The Webmaster's Real World Job has been a flaming nightmare, with everything that can go wrong, doing so with great aplomb. But, as is always the case, the Webmaster and his team rose to the occasion, overcame the issues and once again covered ourselves with glory.

Until next time...

Greetings everyone. Well, the Webmaster has spoken with his manager regarding "Merit" raises and has received his. It amounted to a 2% COLA raise. So much for "Merit." Yes, the Webmaster, considering all the work he has been doing, expected at least a 4% or better raise. However, his manager is not in the United States and no doubt that colored his world view of how things work. There was also the issue of the limited amounts handed out by the compensation board and the new hires we need.


It's better than nothing of course.

On the Anger Central front, no new rants came in. We think part of the problem is that, while Googlag isn't actively blocking Anger Central, both the main site and the Blog, we also think they are gaming the algorithms since our views are not the ones that Googlag cares to allow anyone to know about.

Until next time...

Greetings everyone. It's been a busy time for the Webmaster in his real world job. He decided he needed some time off and has taken last Friday and this Monday off. The Webmaster also picked up the Anger Central Limo. The very day he did this, he stopped at a local supermarket and was nearly plowed in to by some ninny backing out without looking. A quick check in his mirror, a locking of the brakes, and slamming the limo into reverse, all while mashing the horn button at the unobservant idiot and he managed to avoid another trip to the repair shop.

Also at the Webmaster's Real World Job, a new hire starts this week. It will take several months for him to get up to speed, and because of this and other issues with the offices in faraway lands, the Webmaster is going to be pulling some really oddball shifts for the next couple of weeks.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

April 7, 2019

Greetings everyone. It's been a very busy week at the Webmaster's Real World Job. We're very shorthanded now and the FNG won't start for another week. One of the things the Webmaster found out is that he has the highest number of tickets closed per month for the entire company, by a factor of 2. The next highest is his team leader, who was complaining that he should be closing many or any tickets. The other centers? The one with the highest staffing levels is also the one with the lowest per engineer ticket resolutions. The only other group with more tickets closed is the team that handles the P1 site down incidents. Needless to say, the Webmaster is expecting a big raise.

The Anger Central Limo is in the shop this weekend. he has a wheel bearing being replaced. Sadly, what was supposed to be a 3 hour job is now going to take several days. The dealership broke a sensor, doesn't have one in stock and has to order a new part. They have given the Webmaster a loaner at no charge. The broken part will also be replaced at no charge.

The Webmaster also found out that his frame is subject to a recall due to rust issues. They inspected it and told him he has maybe a year before the Frame fails. The bad news? It's a $12K repair. The good news? It's covered until 2021 and the dealer said it will probably fail inspection before then. The Webmaster has been toying with the idea of a new limo, however he needs to work on the financing first, so probably a year at the earliest.

We had 4 new rants come in including one form a scream Progressive Moonbat who, typical of those of his political ilk, promptly started insulting the Webmaster. The Webmaster replied in a Note from Anger Central of course. We wager that moron never expected to see his idiocy posted online.

Until next time...

Greetings all, it's that time of year, Tax Time! (Boo! Hiss!! Boo) Yes, the Webmaster has filed his taxes for 2018 and he is not a happy camper. He wrote a very loud post about it and other issues he's having over on the Blog.

We had one new post come in last week, nothing to exciting.

The Webmaster has also been chortling over the collapse of the "RUSSIA! RUSSIA! RUSSIA!!" Mueller inquisition. He's been writing about that for most of last week on the Blog.

The Webmaster's Real World Job has been very busy, perhaps to busy. His team has lost another member to another team, (Good for him, bad for us), and we have yet to find a replacement for him. If we were willing to announce the Webmaster's Real World Employer, we would post the job openings, however, we know where that will lead to, so...no.

Otherwise, it's been very quiet.

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry!

March 24, 2019

Greetings all. We didn't have an update last week for two reasons, The Webmaster had to work last weekend, and we had nothing to post. This week, we do.

The temperatures are rising, and..

Spring is here, a-suh-puh-ring is here.
Life is skittles and life is beer.
I think the loveliest time of the year is the spring.
I do, don't you? 'course you do.
But there's one thing that makes spring complete for me,
And makes ev'ry sunday a treat for me.

All the world seems in tune
On a spring afternoon,
When we're poisoning pigeons in the park.
Ev'ry sunday you'll see
My sweetheart and me,
As we poison the pigeons in the park.

Ok, the Webmaster is channeling his inner Tom Lehrer. The Webmaster actually prefers to shoot roosting pigeons off the power lines with a .22.

The Angry Systems Administrator saw the new Captain Marvel movie and he liked it. He has written a review and does recommend it.

Until next week...

Stay Angry!!

March 10, 2019

Greetings all. Well, this time we have a direct rant from our hero, the Angry Webmaster over on the blog. This time he opened fire, virtually speaking, on the United States Postal Service. It makes for an interesting blast at one government agency, and a surprisingly nice remarks towards another.

The Webmaster's Real World Job is still a bit of a dumpster fire, with Thursday's being the worst. Last week wasn't as bad as the previous week, thankfully.

Otherwise, it's been a fairly slow week. Oh, it's snowing again. Would someone page Alexandria Occasional-Cortex and let her know that we will be be needing her to shovel off all the global warming and climate change in the Anger Central parking area? Thanks.

Until Next Time...

Greetings all. Well, last week was a nonstop dumpster fire for the Angry Webmaster at his real world job. In fact, several of his teammates made models of dumpsters and then set them on fire. (The webmaster wanted to torch a real dumpster, but it was decided that might not be a great idea)

On the Rants side of the house, we had one come in. Otherwise, it's been fairly quiet. The Angry Systems Administrator has been monitoring our new Phone service and is very happy with Mint Mobile. The counter flipped over on March first and he now has some metrics on our data usage. We didn't even come close to the 3GB limit per line. Of course, we've all long gotten into the habit of using WiFi when available, however it's nice to see that we have plenty available considering how we use Mobile Data.

We recommend that you take a look at Mint Mobile and see if it might serve your needs. While Ting was suitable for what we needed when we started using smartphones, we have outgrown it.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

February 24, 2019

Greetings all. We received several rants this week including one blasting PETA. We checked the file and that page hasn't been edited in years. Still, it is nice to have another meat eater posting.

The Webmaster and the Former Mrs. Webmaster have been dealing with the Department of Motor Vehicles. The Former Mrs. Webmaster has been issued a new license, however, it seems that the United States Postal Service is not able to deliver it. It's been returned to the main office once already and is probably on it's way back again. The DMV has been responsive, however they are telling us that the former Mrs. Webmaster can't just go to the state capitol and pick it up, it MUST be delivered by U.S. Mail, and they won't do it. I believe the Webmaster is going to prepare a nice blast against those idiots on the Blog soon.

Things are extremely busy at the Webmaster's Real World Job. When he returned to Work last week, his team leader referred to the previous week as a non-stop Dumpster fire. Then we had last week and he said this one was even worse.

The Webmaster also had stage one of his review at his Real World Job, and he brought up money. He's been there for over a year and hasn't received a raise. Part of the issue was his start date. It was late last year, and he didn't expect to see a raise. His Team Lead, who doesn't deal with that part of the process agrees that the Webmaster should get one and will be bringing it up with our manager. He also noted that the Webmaster has always been ready to "Step up" when there was a need.

The Webmaster has also been informed that he will become a "Special Technical Resource." This means he will be assigned to a specific client to hold their hand and handle all their requirements. This is a good career move for him. His team has sadly lost yet another member in a cross transfer. However, we are in the process of replacing that person and hiring a new one. We certainly need the help. While the Webmaster would love to name his company, he won't. This site has cost him a job in the past. (The Webmaster was caught by surprise that time and is ready if it happens again. Still not going to name the company)

Until next time...

February 17, 2019

Greetings all. We are returning to our normal schedule. The Webmaster is recovering nicely from his multi-day endeavors at his Real World Job. He's also recovering from the minor dental work he had done as well. It was scheduled for April, however, a slot opened up last week and he took the opportunity to just get it over with. Lots of Novocain was used.

On the rants front, nothing new has come in. Even the resident Trump Haters haven't been posting, which we find surprising. The Webmaster has been concentrating on the Blog this week, and with so much idiocy out there, he has had plenty of fodder. He has one coming out today that is just sad. Who knew Mary Poppins was racist and if you saw and enjoyed the movies, you were a racist too?

Tax time is rapidly approaching and the Webmaster has been working with the Angry Accountant. No refund this year. We're going to have to cut a check to Uncle Sugar. Honestly, this isn't a surprise. We minimize our withholding. In case you didn't know, when you get a refund, it means you overpaid your taxes and were nice enough to provide the Federal government with a nice, interest free loan. Instead, since we're going to be paying, we got the interest instead. Needless to say, we're not filing until a few days before tax day.

Until next time...

Greetings all it's Superbowl Sunday!! *Yawn* Yes we are based in new England and yes, the Patriots are once again in the Superbowl. We just have better things to do, like celebrate Chinese New Year!! The Angry Significant Other, (Formally Mrs. Webmaster), is out partying with friends. On the down side, it's also the Vietnamese Tet holiday, and the Webmaster's Real World Job has just become a nightmare. The company's Vietnam office has closed down for 2 weeks and the other offices have to cover for them. In this case, next weekend, the Webmaster will be pulling back to back 12 hour shifts. Needless to say, don't expect any updates next weekend to the main site or the Blog.

In technical news, the Angry Systems Administrator has made the decision to change mobile services. For the last 8+ years, we've been using Ting.com. Last week, the Angry Systems Administrator signed us up for a new company called Mint Mobile. Like Ting, they also use T-Mobile as their back end. However, where Ting's service was "Pay as you go" and not expensive, if you started using it more, the costs would go up.

Mint Mobile charges about the same, depending on the service level, but you prepay at least 3 months in advance. You also get unlimited calls and texts, which has become important to the Webmaster and others at Anger Central. It also has a far higher data plan, which has also started to become important to the Webmaster and the others in the office. The Angry Systems Administrator wrote about the switch on the Blog last week.

Finally, we had another raging moron post his/her hatred of all things Trump, right down to the obligatory threats of violence and mayhem. We're pretty sure that the Moonbat didn't expect us to actually post his/hers raging stupidity, but that's what we're here for. The Note From Anger Central lays out our response.

As we mentioned above, the Webmaster is pulling some long shifts next weekend. However, he will be off the following week as compensation time. We will probably push the updates a week from Monday or Tuesday.

Until Next time...

Stay Angry!

January 27, 2019

Good day all. Well, the Webmaster is on the road to recovery, and so is the Angry Significant Other. (Formally Mrs. Webmaster) The snow has melted away. Other then that, it's been quiet here.

We had no new rants come in, and considering that everyone is probably sick, that isn't surprising. One thing we did see last week was that WhatsApp, a chat program we've been using for the last few years is about to be thoroughly trashed, securitywise by Facebook. The Angry Systems Administrator is looking for a replacement and so far, Signal appears to be the one we're going to be moving to. One of the creators used to be with WhatsApp and the source code is available for peer review. We shall see where it leads.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!! (And healthy)

January 20, 2019

Good day all. This will be short and sweet. The Webmaster is sick as a dog and isn't going to spend any more time online today then he has to.

No new rants this week.

It's snowing

Until next time...

January 13, 2019

Good day all. Things have become "interesting" in the rants this week. We had another, (Perhaps the same), Progressive Anti-freedom Antifa clown posting in the section on President Trump. As you would expect, logic and rationality left this nut's household long ago. This one isn't quite as bad as the previous one, where the ranter decided to make threats towards the Webmaster. The response from Anger Central was straightforward and amounted to "So you wanna dance? Fine, Let's Dance!" We received to other rants this week having nothing to do with President Trump. It's nice to see a small uptick in postings.

We're still trying to figure out the new Amazon ad system. The Webmaster has been putting in links to items, and we do see clicks on the administration pages, and even a few sales. Just nothing coming back to us. Oh well, I guess Bezos is to busy dealing with his impending divorce.

Speaking of administration, The Webmaster has been tasked in February to work a couple of late weekend shifts at his Real World Job. When we say late, We're talking 12 hour shifts starting at 12PM and ending at 12AM. Don't expect any blog or main site updates that weekend. We'll update both the blog and the main site once we have more information.

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry!

January 6, 2019

Good day all! Well, another year has passed and a new one has begun. As you can see above, we have 20 years of news in our archives. It's truly hard to believe that Anger Central has been around for that long, longer actually, in one form or another. We have seen our traffic drop from the heydays, but we blame that on the Googlag monopoly

The Webmaster has been fully employed for a little over a year now, and is slowly rebuilding his cash reserves. The former Mrs. Webmaster has returned to the fold, and we're all working with her to get her green card renewed. (The Democrats shutdown isn't helping us here)

On the rants front, we had three come in, including one from a barking moonbat. Said moonbat, demonstrating the total ignorance of that genus, promptly called the Webmaster a racist and threatened him. Needless to say, the Webmaster responded and isn't backing down. No doubt the moonbat won't actually try and assault the Webmaster, these creatures are noted cowards, and won't attack unless they are in a pack. Even then, the slightest resistance and they will turn tail and run.

We foresee an interesting year ahead.

Until next time...
