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 left is a picture of our Lord and Master, the Angry Webmaster. A nice and stable looking sort isn't he? He bears a strong resemblance to a certain figure who went by the name Dr. Strangelove. Interesting that the two have never been seen together, hmm?

On the right is our typical Poster. Note the blind rage in his face, the eyes popping out, mouth wide open. Yes, he does seem to be a bit annoyed at something.

December 27, 2015

Well, the Webmaster's hatred of all things Christmas is complete. last week he managed to develop a massive case of tendonitis in his right shoulder. This makes it near impossible for him to lift his right arm and very difficult to work a keyboard and mouse. The pain was so severe he went to the emergency room at 4am Christmas eve.

On Christmas Day, the now former Mrs. Webmaster handed him her key to the house and drove off to meet her sister and move to Alabama. To say that he is miserable would be a serious understatement.

No news on the job front of course. He did hear from a headhunter company that he hadn't talked to since 2008. In fact, the resume they had was ancient and the headhunter was going to offer him a helpdesk job, right up until he asked about what the Webmaster has been doing the last 8 years. He's going to update their database and call me after New Years.

We had one rant come in last night and it's now available. We weren't expecting any since traffic tends to drop off this time of year.

Well, maybe next year will be better. Probably not, considering the run of luck the Webmaster has been having, but there is a slight chance. There is also a slight chance that a massive asteroid will hit Yellowstone park, rupture the magma chamber and end all life on Earth. That probably isn't going to happen either.

Until Next time

Stay Angry.

Merry Christmas to all of you politically incorrect people. To the Precious Snowflakes who might be offended by that greeting, BITE ME!

We had a couple of posts come in, nothing to spectacular. The new Star Wars movie has opened. We haven't seen it as yet due to not wanting to be trampled by thousands of nitwits with no life. We're going to see it in a few weeks once the mass idiocy has died down a bit.

No news on the job front, but we aren't expecting anything for the Webmaster until January. This time of year, companies basically shut down their hiring and ramp up their end of year, "Merry Christmas! You're Fired!" processes. Frankly, this has turned into the second Year from Hell for the Webmaster and he can't wait to see it end. It's not as bad as the last Year of Hell, but it's right up there.

December 12, 2015

Good day all. Well, the job the Webmaster interviewed for has fallen through. Needless to say, he isn't happy. He's still waiting to hear back on the other job he interviewed for, and has sent email to the HR person he's been dealing with. If he doesn't hear back, well, that's another job down the drain.

We had one rant regarding mothers inlaw come in this week, otherwise not much else.

Tis the season for politically correct holiday greetings, to whish we say "MERRY CHRISTMAS YOU @^%$%^*&()*!!!!!" Have we mentioned how much the Angry Webmaster hates, despises and loathes Christmas? It isn't for politically correct reasons either. He's hated it for most of his life, and this year isn't any better.

Hopefully, the new year will bring better times for him.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

December 6, 2015

Merry Christmas everyone! There, that should tick off the Perpetually offended. As you all know now. there was an Islamic Terrorist attack in California last week. 14 people were killed, many others wounded. The husband and wife Jihadi team were eventually found and killed. As expected, Obama refused to call it Islamic terrorism, the Democrats promptly demanded gun confiscation and the FBI seems to be well on it's way to botching this investigation, just the same as they botched the Benghazi investigation.

We had one new rant this week. Someone going on about Starbucks coffee. (Which we know isn't actually coffee) Otherwise, it was rather quiet on that side of the fence.

On the job front, the Webmaster had another interview of the face to face kind Friday. We shall see how it goes of course, but he won't be holding his breath. The Angry Sister, who has been out of work since last spring is finally getting some offers. The Webmaster wishes he ahd the problem of multiple offers.

And finally, the Webmaster's primary work system is trying to update itself to Windows 10. The Angry Systems Administrator has one system currently running Winblows 10, but we aren't ready to move everyone into it just yet.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!
(And alert, and armed in case if Islamic Terrorist attacks)

November 29, 2015

Greetings one and all. We hope you had a very filling Thanksgiving and that the Indigestion was NOT with you. (Star Wars reference. Just getting into the spirit of the ad campaign)

On the job search front, the Webmaster had a face to face interview. It went well, in that they seemed to like him as a person, (Yes, we know. The Webmaster? Likeable?) It will probably be a couple of weeks before he hears anything one way or the other. The Webmaster has another Face to Face interview on Friday. He has a few former coworkers there who are pulling for him so we shall see.

We had just one single rant come in this week. Understandable since it is a holiday week. We've been wondering if we should drop links to this site on all the Social Justice/politically correct web sites just to see what sort of reaction we can get. Lots of Precious Little Snowflakes will no doubt feel very unsafe. muhahahaha!

Otherwise, it's been a very quiet week here at Anger Central. Let's see what we can do to raise the noise level a bit.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

November 22, 2015

Greetings all. Well, the Webmaster now has two face to face interviews scheduled, one for Monday and one as previously mentioned. We shall see what happens, but since the Webmaster is an optimistic pessimist, (He is very optimistic that things will go wrong), he isn't holding his breath for either of them.

We had one rant come in and had to give it some thought. However, some research indicates that the enraged person seems to be correct in being enraged and the person the poster, (whoever it may be), is someone deserving of being enraged at. (Public figure too)

Yesterday, the Webmaster binge watched the new NetFlix show, Jessica Jones. Review may be pending once he regains consciousness.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

November 15, 2015

Good day all. First, our condolences to all those who were slaughtered by the "Religion of Peace" (My ass) in Paris Friday. This is going to be France's 9/11.

On the job front, the Webmaster has an interview scheduled for December 4. The delay is due to the hiring manager going on a well deserved vacation. The Webmaster is still waiting to hear abut a follow up interview with another company. He contacted the HR person and was told they are still on the first round of screens. This doesn't bode well for the Webmaster.

He is also working through an online course on VMware. It's a $1000 course he was able to get for $99 and is good for a year. He's also looking at anything he can take online for little or no costs.

We received one rant this week. This is better than last week of course where we had none.

On a personal note. The paperwork for Mr. & Mrs. Webmaster to become not Mr. & Mrs. Webmaster has gone to the courts. The Webmaster is very unhappy. However, the couple are actually getting closer now than they've been for a while. Mrs. soon to be former Webmaster is talking about getting back together when she comes back from  China. Perhaps this is just a "Divorce of convenience?"

One thing that came up during all this was Mrs. Webmaster's health insurance coverage. It looks like she was never covered under the Webmaster's insurance, which has outraged him. Considering that the insurance company was hacked, and it was done by the Chinese Government, it isn't beyond the realm of possibility that they also altered records as well as stole them. He is continuing his investigations.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

November 8, 2015

Good day all. No postings this week. This is the first time in a while. The Webmaster's job search continues with many rejections. He had a couple of phone screens, but isn't holding his breath. He's also taking an online class in VMware to punch up the old Resume. The only problem is a lack of access to actual VMware systems to play on.

The Webmaster is actively considering selling the Anger Central Primary and looking at moving down to Texas. Of course, he needs to have an actual job waiting before he does that. Well, it will be a few months before he can start that process even if he wants to. No one buys houses in Winter if they can avoid it.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

November 1, 2015

Good day all. Another week of no job for the Webmaster. He had a couple of phone screens, as well as communications with various headhunters. He also filed for his second week of "Funemployment."

One thing the Webmaster has noticed is that several of the jobs he's applied to or interviewed at are being reposted. One of them was a job he interviewed for almost a month ago. Frankly, we aren't surprised by this. The job was listed as a systems administrator role and it's really just a local office desktop support job.

We've seen this a lot, where businesses title a job that should get someone up to 6 figures in compensation, with a long list of requirements. When you actually talk to them you find the position is for a helpdesk role. The Webmaster has also commented on seeing a job that would be perfect for him, (actually two of them with different companies), but the compensation was actually less than you would get as a burger flipper at McDonalds. The Office thinks these are fake jobs and are being used to justify an H1B serf.

Finally, last night was the end of Daylight Saving Time. We hope you remembered to roll your clocks back an hour. In case you forgot, the Webmaster created a PSA on the Blog for you.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

October 25, 2015

Greetings all, well all the jobs the Webmaster interviewed for have gone to other people. This includes a 6 month contract he interviewed for last month. As of right now, he has no prospects.

A few back end things. We're not seeing any sales through the Anger Central Company Store. This uses Amazon.com. We never saw a lot of sales through it, but over the last year, it's dropped to zero. We aren't sure if this is due to lack of interest in Anger Central or Amazon constantly changing things.

On a more personal note, The Webmaster and his Wife, (for the moment), have all the paperwork for their impending split. Interestingly, they are both getting along better now than they have for the last year or so. In fact, Mrs. Webmaster is starting citizenship classes and the two of them were actually looking at houses in Texas.

Texas. Yes, the Webmaster is thinking about moving Anger Central to the Lone Star State. Mrs. Webmaster has a nephew who is also moving into Texas and lets be honest. There are a lot more jobs for technical people down there than up here. So, anyone interested in buying a house in NH?

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

October 18, 2015. Well

Good day all. Well, the Webmaster has filed for unemployment for the first time in almost 9 years. Hopefully this will not be a long term thing. He did have a pair of face to face interviews this week. One with a company he isn't all that excited about, (And will probably not hire him), and one that looks very interesting. He also has spoken with a number of head hunters and there is another one opening he is very interested in.

Global Warming has kicked in hard here at Anger Central and the furnace is blasting away. It looks like we may have had a frost overnight. The Webmaster posted something on the blog yesterday protesting Man Made Continental Drift. We suspect he was just making a joke at the Global warmists

We've had a few posts this week, nothing to write home about. All in all a very quiet week.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

October 11, 2015

Good day all. The Webmaster has concluded his first week of gainful unemployment. He's been talking with recruiters and is waiting to hear about about another contract position. So far, nothing.

The Webmaster has been working around the Primary Dwelling, getting things ready for winter. He's also been catching up on his reading list.

We also had a few more posts come in. Things have been rather stable with between 2-5 new rants a week. *shrug*

In any case....

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

October 4, 2015

Greetings all. The Webmaster is now fully unemployed. To date he's had one interview and several phone screens. He's also received several rejection notices. One company he applied to just did some major retrenching and found they needed another person. However, they mis-titled the job. They listed it as a systems admin job when it's actually a desktop/office support role. Once the Webmaster met with them he was surprised they even bothered once he heard the real job description.

He's also put in for a few really good jobs, talked with the company HR recruiter and then...nothing. This is something that really annoys him. He is told they want to talk with him, or that a job is a good fit, and you never hear from the recruiters again. Headhunter companies are notorious for this. The Webmaster spoke with a couple, they told him they would submit his resume and then...nothing. They won't even respond to his email.

Finally there are the call centers from India trying to get "Exclusive rights to represent" the Webmaster. He just hangs up when they call. If it's from New Jersey or Washington, it's usually one of these two legged vegetables for whom English is a third language.

The Webmaster left his contract on good terms with the employer, so there's always a chance of a return engagement once they actually have some money. The Webmaster was also interested in joining another department in that company since he could do that job as well as the one he was hired to do. That group is very short-handed, but they don't have any budget for new hires either.

Yeah, this has been a really crappy year for the Webmaster and it isn't over yet.

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry!

September 27, 2015

Good day all. The Webmaster has one more week of employment and then panic sets in. He has gone on one interview, and while he thought he did well, he isn't expecting to hear anything back. He's also talked with a myriad of headhunters, all promising the moon. None have delivered and in most cases, once he spoke with them, they cut all communications.

This is one of the major issues with contracting companies. You talk with them, they tell you they will submit your resume, and you never hear from them again. One of the jobs was perfect for the Webmaster. There was some debate on if he would be able to work at home, since the location is south of Boston. Since talking with the recruiter, he hasn't been able to reach him.

Other than that, it's been fairly quiet at Anger Central. Too Quiet. There may be a plot afoot against the Webmaster. (Dons tinfoil hat)

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

September 20, 2015

Good day all. Well the Webmaster will be joining the ranks of the unemployed in October. His contract wasn't extended nor was he converted as originally promised to a permanent, full time position. The reason is simple. The company spent a pile of money on a major project and now has no money left. The Webmaster's manager isn't happy but there's nothing he can do. In fact, other departments are also hurting over the hiring freeze in place.

The Webmaster isn't letting the grass grow under his feet and has already started looking for a new job. He has a face to face interview with a company just down the street from his current, (and soon to be former), place of employment. We shall see how that goes, but he isn't holding his breath.

We had an increase in the number of rants this week, and we're beginning to see some come in dealing with the current political contest in the United States. Hopefully, we'll see plenty more.

Until next time...

Stay Angry

September 13, 2015

Good day all. The 14th Anniversary of the 9/11 attack was last week and in remembrance, the Democrats cleared the way for Iran to launch a nuclear attack on Israel and the United States.

The Webmaster is waiting to hear if he will be take on full time at his Real World Job, continue as a contractor or be sent on his way. While he is hoping for the first, he is planning on the last and is looking around. In an amusing coincidence, the Angry Sister was called in for an interview at a company the Angry Webmaster interviewed at a few years ago. Why is this amusing? She didn't even apply to it. They called her out of the blue, She probably won't accept the job. In fact she said her husband, the Angry Brother In-Law was a far better fit then she was. He's going to send in his resume apparently.

We had a couple of rants come in, and a ton of spam. We're looking into a new way to block out the garbage but let the gems come through. Since all posts are manually examined before going up, none of the garbage is getting online.


Until next time...

Stay Angry!
(Which should be easy considering all the politics going on)

September 6, 2015

Greetings all. We hope you are having a great Labor Day weekend. The Webmaster isn't doing much of anything this weekend, other than looking for a new Real World Job. He hasn't lost his current gig, but it is a contract and the contract is up at the end of the month.

On the rants front, we had a fair number come in this week, far more than we've seen in a while. Keep it up!

The Webmaster is finally happy with his new phone. The replacement battery is doing quite well, and depending on usage, can go over 24 hours before needing a recharge.

Until Next time...

Stay Angry!

August 30, 2015

Good day all. It's been another quiet week here at Anger Central. The Webmaster finally got his new phone sorted out. It turned out to be a bad battery. Now it's working just fine.

As is usual, we had just one rant come in on former Senator Ron Paul. Why anyone care about him, other than Rand Paul is beyond us. Oh well.

The Webmaster has also applied to a permanent position in a different company and will be going through a phone screen Monday. It's closer to home and not in Massachusetts. His current contract is up at the end of September and he has no idea of it will be extended, if he will be converted to full time or let go. He isn't waiting around.

The Angry Sister lost her job a few weeks ago. She's looking and is interviewing at a company the Webmaster interviewed at a few years ago. They apparently called her out of the blue. It's not exactly what she is looking for, but it's a job and we gather they will let her work from home a few days a week.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

August 23, 2015

Good day all. The Webmaster has a new phone, thanks to the Angry Systems Administrator and so far he's made 2 trips back to have someone look at issues of overheating. Last night he went to the vendor with the idea of a phone swap. Instead, the replaced the battery. This is actually a good idea, just in case the battery is bad in some way.

The overheating issues started on Wednesday. We suspect it might be the car kit is causing some serious overcharging of the phone and that may have damaged the battery. (Cheap product bought on Amazon. We won't list it of course) Hopefully this will take care of the problem. If it does, then the car kit goes into the trash and we make do with finding a receptacle to plug into for recharging.

Also, the team went out yesterday and saw Man from Uncle. We liked it. The Webmaster might right up a review of it for the blog later on.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

August 16, 2015

Good day all. It was a quiet week. We had one rant come in that was almost rejected since it looked like a response more than a scream in anger at the world, etc.

Mrs. (For the time being), Webmaster is still in NYC. She's trying to find a better job to "pay for her life."

The Webmaster had his blood pressure checked, and was surprised that it's actually in the low normal range. He is on BP meds and has been for a few years. As far as his doctor is concerned, as long as he doesn't faint, leave him on it. It's cheap money anyway.

The Webmaster was also given a new phone to play with by the Angry Systems Administrator. The A.S. will be writing about it on the blog later.

Until next week...

Stay Angry!

August 9, 2015

Good day all. We're going to provide a bit of information on what is going on with the Webmaster. Mrs. Webmaster came back from China a month ago, and announced she no longer wanted to live in America. She has since packed up all her things and moved to New York City to "Pay for her life."

The Webmaster is a complete wreck since he didn't see this coming. There is a slight chance of a reconciliation, but the staff isn't expecting Mrs. Webmaster to change her mind. From what we have been able to determine, Mrs. Webmaster is basically having a midlife crisis. She has a history of refusing any help, either from her husband or her inlaws. There is also a cultural issue. Retirement age for Chinese women is 50 and Mrs. Webmaster is closing in on that age. She doesn't know how she can maintain her lifestyle, and won't let her husband do the husband thing and help her. (She has always been very independent)

We're all hoping that the two of them solve the problems and get back together. The Webmaster is a flat out wreck over this. If the worst is going to happen, Mrs. Webmaster has announced that she wants nothing. This means a simple, uncontested divorce.

To be honest, none of us knew just how upset with things Mrs. Webmaster was. We all knew something was eating at her, but when anyone in the office, as well as the Webmaster, tried to help her, she would just reply "No problem."

So now you know what's happening here in the office.

Thank you

August 2, 2015

Good day all. The bad personal issues are continuing and show no signs of improvement. There is still hope of course.

We received a posting this week regarding hunters. It was from a moonbat animal rights whackjob regarding that lion that was killed a week or so ago. The Webmaster hasn't written about it yet, but he has been considering it.

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry!

July 26, 2015

The personal issues mentioned last week have gotten worse. Eventually, we will talk about what's happening, but not right now.

July 19, 2015

We won't be talking about the goings on with Anger Central this week. There's a major personal issue occurring with some of the staff. It's about as bad as it gets.

July 12, 2015

Good day all. Well, the week from Hell is over. First the good news. Mrs. Webmaster is home! Now the bad news. She apparently cracked a rib, just below her clavicle, right before leaving for China. From what she told the Webmaster and the Angry Medic, it looks like the doctors in China are saying it's a stress fracture. We suspect this was caused from lifting trays of food on her shoulder at her last job. The only cure is for her to rest and keep weight off her right side.

Now the Hell part.

First, Mrs. Webmaster's car is back from the body shop. As you may recall, she was rear ended just before she left for China. While she was away, The Webmaster had some other minor damage and rust cleaned up as well. That was an additional $1400. The Webmaster had budgeted for that. What he didn't budget for was the additional $800 for new tires and general maintenance work the car needed.

And then there is the Webmaster's own vehicle. In the last month, he had to spend $800 for a new wheel bearing, and last week, when he went down to Logan Airport to pick up his beloved, his air conditioning broke down. He just had that fixed to the tune of $1500. To top it all off, one of his radiator hoses needs to be replaced and that's another $140.

It's a good thing the Webmaster has been socking away money in savings accounts so he can cover all of these surprise expenses.

We had a couple of new rants come in. One was a real beauty. It looks like a couple of divorced parents are fighting over kids. We really hate to see families break up like that.

There are also some issues on the back end of the Blog. The Angry Systems Administrator is trying to ascertain what the issues are and see about correcting them. It looks like a problem with the MySQL database that the blog runs on. It's annoying, but doesn't seem to be affecting the front end to much. He'll post an update at some point on the blog...or else.

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry!

July 5, 2015

Greetings one and all. We hope you all had a good Independence Day celebration and didn't blow to many fingers off. Due to the holiday.

It was a slow week here at Anger Central. One posting came in. We also saw some issues on the Blog last week that we're still working through. It appears to be database related and the Angry Systems Administrator is looking into it. One issue is that the time delay isn't working correctly. This allows us to write a post and then set it to go live at a future date. Since the Webmaster has a habit of writing a number of posts in one sitting and spreading them out, this can be a bit annoying.

Mrs. Webmaster is due back in the United States this Tuesday. We hope she will be happy with her car now that the repairs have been completed. Two new bumpers and several small scratches and rust patches removed. One bumper was covered under Insurance, the rest was covered under the Webmaster's wallet. :(

Then the Webmaster took his beloved's car in for an oil change and found out she needed a new set of tires, new filters and the fuel system cleaned out. (The Angry Accountant looks at the Paypal account and see's...nothing)

The Webmaster is a bit concerned since his current contract, extended once, is due to end in late August. Whether he is extended or finally hired on a permanent basis is not known. His manager likes him and wants to keep him, along with his coworkers. Always a good sign. We shall see of course.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

June 28, 2015

Good day all. We had no new postings this week and traffic dropped off. it looks like there was also a problem with the blog Thursday, although the Angry Systems Administrator hasn't reported in on it yet.

We also saw the final end of Constitutional Government when the black robed tyrants on the Supreme Court basically rewrote Obamacare and ended both the 10th and 1st amendments. There will probably be more on that on the blog as well.

Mrs. Webmaster will be returning in a little over a week and her car is still in the body shop. The Angry Webmaster will be calling them and arranging to get it back this week. (Car is repaired, they've just been slow in finishing up the detail work)

Oh wll

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

June 21, 2015

Good day all, well not so good. The Angry Webmaster's primary vehicle is in the shop and there is a better then even chance it won't be ready for his travels to his Real World Job Monday Morning. Since he is a contractor at this job, it also means he won't be paid either. Normally, with Mrs. Webmaster out of the country, the Webmaster would just use her car. Her car is still at the body and fender shop being repaired and painted, and isn't ready yet. (After 6 weeks no less! Yes, they did say no rush, but this is ridiculous)

We got a few rants in this week which is a good thing.

On the Blog front, the Angry Systems Administrator found that a number of Youtube links were down and now the Webmaster has to go through a number of old posts and see if he can replace them in some way. He's already been forced to trash a couple of posts since the videos are totally gone now. :(

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

June 14, 2015

Good day all. Another quiet week with only a single new post. The Webmaster has been moping around since Mrs. Webmaster is still in China. The Webmaster has also been looking at replacing his Galaxy S3 with the new model, but decided to save some money and just replace the battery. Oh, that's something that can't be done with the new Galaxy S6. Well, there's always the S7.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

June 7, 2015

Greetings all. It's been a fairly quiet week here. We had two new posts come in and they're now up. The Angry Systems Administrator decided to poke his head out of his cave and put up a posting on the Blog this morning.  The Angry Webmaster is taking exception with his comments on the Webmaster resetting his Smartphone.

The Webmaster will also take the Systems Administrator's advice, (for once), on the new Netflix series, Sense8 and avoid it.

And until next time...

Stay Angry!

May 31, 2015

Greetings all. It's been a very expensive and annoying week for the Angry Webmaster. He just dropped close to $800 on new lenses as well as an additional $120 for the eye exam.  Why is he so angry? Normally he goes to an ophthalmologist who takes good, if pricey care of his vision. Last year, he broke his frames and had to get a new pair right away. He went to a chain that he uses when getting new lenses, and since his prescription was out of date, had to get an exam

Instead of an ophthalmologist, he saw an optometrist who wanted him to have progressive lenses. (Which are more expensive) He refused. The optometrist ignored his wishes and set his new prescription for progressives. He saw that and told the lens makers he didn't want them.

This set up a problem he didn't notice right away. In order to read a computer screen, he had to rest the frames on the end of his nose. This was annoying but livable. In the last few weeks, the Webmaster noticed his vision was changing, so he went in for another exam. Thinking that once was a mistake, he gave the place on more try. This time he was conned talked into progressives.

He hates them.

He had also taken in an older set of frames to have them made into a distance only backup pair. When he picked them up, he tried them on, and looking at a door with a large "LAB" sign on it, about 15 feet away, saw the letters were blurry. To say he was annoyed would be a bit of an understatement. He told them that he wasn't accepting the glasses until they were corrected.

They did fix the issue after acknowledging the optometrist had made an error. The new lenses were perfect. Now the webmaster is only using the overpriced progressives when he works on a computer. He also won't be using the examination services of that chain again, and will return to his regular ophthalmologist. He also won't be getting another pair of progressives again.

Now onto Anger Central stuff.

We received two rants this week. That's a little better than the zero rants we've seen for the last two prior weeks, but come on people! Aren't you angry about things?

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

May 25, 2015

Good day all. We're a day late posting. We had no reason to post since nothing came in last week, and it is Memorial Day weekend. We received a post just a short while ago so the Webmaster decided to do an update.

As mentioned, today is Memorial Day. Please take a few moments to remember all those who gave their lives so we could be free.

Thank you.

Good day all. We had no rants in this week. It's hot and the Webmaster is eyeing his air conditioner again. Instead of angry rants, how about a discussion on civil rights for cattle?

Until next time...

Stay Cool!!

And Angry!

May 10, 2015

Good evening all. This will be short. The webmaster is exhausted right now. He had to get up at 3am to drive the beloved Mrs. Webmaster to the airport for an early flight to China. Mrs. Webmaster will be returning July 7th.

We have one new entry this week.

It's damn hot out and the Angry facilities manager has activated the HVAC system. Screams of "GLOBAL WARMING!!! WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!" commencing in 5..4..3..2..1

Until next time.

Stay Angry!

Good day all. Things are moving along. Mrs. Webmaster lost her job last week and is moping around the Anger Central Primary Dwelling. She also had a minor traffic accident and has a slightly bent rear bumper. Thankfully no one was injured and the damage was very slight. The Webmaster called the insurance company and the estimate is quite low. Since the other driver, some kid with a learners permit and his mother, was responsible, there will be no effect on the happy couples rates. On top of all this, Mrs. Webmaster has decided to go back to China for 2 months to relax and decompress.

In other news, we have another "Royal baby." The Prince and Princess of Cambridge of spawned a Spare Heir of the female gender. The Webmaster posted his thoughts about it this morning.

The riots in Baltimore have calmed down thanks to what appears to be a politically motivated criminal charge brought against 6 Baltimore police officers. While we don't know if anything illegal was actually done, the way these charges were brought by the State's attorney is looking like a desperation move. Many lawyers on both sides of the political spectrum are saying that there's a good chance these charges will be tossed, no matter if the officers broke the law or not. Shades of George Zimmerman?

We also had three posts come in this week.

And with all that...

Until next time...

Good day all. Well, the Webmaster had some good news last week. Even though he isn't being converted to a regular, full time employee at his Real World Job, his contract has been extended through August. Hopefully, the hiring freeze will be done by then.

The Webmaster has also been looking at the Galaxy S6 to replace his current Galaxy S3. However, his cellpone service hasn't been able to get any as yet and he isn't interested in getting an international version or buying one from one of the major carriers and trying to get it unlocked. Still, it might be advisable to wait a few months and let any bugs work themselves through the system. Early adopters always get bitten.

We had a couple of rants this week and a tone of spam. It's really reaching levels rendering our current ad page unusable. We are looking at ways to improve the captcha system that is now been broken. Still, the spammers should soon realize that their crap isn't getting online.

In any case,

Until next time...

Greetings all. Well, it looks like the Webmaster may be rejoining the roles of the "Funemployed." He was informed last week that he won't be converted from a contractor to a full time employee where he's at. His contract ends May 1st, and there is a chance it will be extended. The Webmaster is not holding his breath and has updated his resume and started looking around.

The reason he isn't being converted doesn't have anything to do with his performance, it has to do with money. The company he was contracted to just completed a major roll out of a new process, and they managed to blow a massive hole in their budget. the costs for implementation were more then twice the estimates, well in to the 9 figure area. Because of this a companywide hiring freeze is in place. The problem is that most of the IT departments are short handed as it is and need to bring in more people. Oh well. At least the Webmaster learned a few more things.

Also, Mrs. Webmaster told her husband that there is a chance she will lose her job as well. She works in a restaurant and apparently they aren't doing to well. No surprises there, thanks to the Obama Regime. The fair and wonderful Mrs. Webmaster has never lost a job, she has left them instead. She is concerned obviously. If it happens we will look into her getting unemployment money.

The Webmaster also posted a review of the new Netflix series Daredevil, after he beat the Angry Systems Administrator with a shovel over his remarks last week. ;)

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

April 12, 2015

Good day all. The Webmaster has disappeared and we don't know where he might be. Rumor has it that Netflix has released a new TV series, and as they normally do, released the entire season. No doubt the Webmaster will surface in a day or so.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

April 5, 2015

Good day all. Last week was not fun for the Webmaster at his Real World Job. It was the aftermath of a major rollout and he was involved with assisting people who didn't pay any attention to the instructions or attend any of the training classes. Oh well, sucks to be him, doesn't it?

We were still getting hammered with spam this week. We did get two rants in and they are now online.

All in all, it's been rather quiet here in the back office. We're all very happy that the snow is almost gone at the Anger Central offices. Pretty soon, we're going to be complaining about the heat and humidity.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

Good day all. The Webmaster was able to update the site this weekend after all. He had to go to his Real World Job Saturday due to a major infrastructure rollout. The rollout began at midnight and there were issues. Happily, his group's "stuff" was ready to roll. However, when the Webmaster arrived for work early yesterday, he found his work system was not working. He dug around a bit on it and determined the video card had fried. After 20 minutes on hold with the Help Desk, they sent out a tech who ended up swapping the system with an identical model and swapping out the hard drive. After that, things were rather quiet.

The spam continues unabated. We're toying with the idea of shutting down the add page and rerouting it to the backup add page, but haven't made a decision as yet. We did get three new real rants this week and they are online now.

On the financial front, the Webmaster had a nice surprise last month. He was notified that his pension from his last Real World Job vested when he left. His initial response was "Pension? What pension?" He thought that all he had was a 401K. He called in and found out that he was also eligible for a company pension in addition to his 401K. He did a little research and decided to cash it out and take the 20% penalty. He can invest that and make the penalty back in fairly short order. Also, the other reason he's cashing it out is Enron. The way corporate pension funds are collapsing, the Webmaster would rather take the bird in the hand. Besides, the monthly payout was next to worthless and was significantly less then he would get with the funds and stocks he's going to invest in.

And finally, the Webmaster decided to buy a new Kindle to replace his old one. He bought a paperwhite model and is in the process of figuring out the new interface. He's also looking at a Galaxy S6 when they are released in a couple of weeks.

Until Next Time...

March 22, 2015

Greetings all. We didn't get any rants in this week. We did get about 2 gazillion pieces of spam. It looks like someone broke that piss poor captcha field on the add page. Oh well.

Some news. There is a good chance that there will be no updates to the main site next week. The Webmaster is being told that he will be working next weekend at his Real World Contract Job. Hey, it's overtime. :)

Speaking of which, the Webmaster met his recruiter last week and was asked if he wanted to go permanent. "HELL YES!" The Webmaster is not noted for his enjoyment of the contracting world.

The Webmaster is also front loading the Blog. This means that a number of entries won't be as timely as usual. Still, it beats unemployment.

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry!

March 15, 2015

Good day all. Another slow week here at Anger Central. We only had one rant come in. It's a good one though and we had to open an actual new category under "Things" called "Collectibles." You should see it in the RSS feeds.

The Webmasters Real World Job is progressing and he's taking on more and more. However, it is a contract and he won't hold his breath about it becoming a permanent role. Speaking of work, the Webmaster found that he has a pension exclusive of his 401K from his old company, and it' vested when he left, He's in the process of cashing it out in a lump sum, (and a nice lump, even with those evil Obama Taxes), it is. He has plans on investments, new toys and other fun things.

One of the things he planned to do with the money was buy the beautiful and wonderful Mrs. Webmaster a new Ifong 6+ boat paddle smartphone. However, she's already made arrangements with one of her friends to get one in China. Instead, he'll probably shower her with Diamonds or something.

Until next time...

Good day all. Did you remember to set your clocks forward one hour? Yes, it's that time of year, when, thanks to that screaming moonbat Ed Markey, that we all lose an hour out of our lives.

Also, the Angry Accountant has filed the taxes for the year. We heard the Webmaster is currently pricing tar and feathers.

The Webmaster also reports that the new Real World Job is moving along and he is slowly being given more duties. The down side is he has been told that he will have to share his cube for a week as a stack of vendors come in to help finish up the project he is on. There is a reason the Webmaster long ago determined that when he is under contract, never bring anything to work you can't carry out at the end of the day.

We just received our one and only rant of the week a few minutes ago. *sigh*

Well, the Webmaster is getting ready to write blog posts for the coming week. Here's one we think you will like.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

March 1, 2015

This will be brief. The Webmaster has locked himself in the Anger Central Entertainment Center and is binge watching Season Three of Netflix's original series, House of Cards.

We have a team of specialists who will come in tomorrow and decontaminate the room.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

February 22, 2015

Oh the joys of gainful employment! The Webmaster is now going full bore at his new Real World Job, now that his access issues have been squared away. He has been learning the ins and outs of the Apache Tomcat server on a Windows Platform, something he hasn't really dealt with in the past. He also received his first paycheck yesterday. (A live check? What happened to Direct Deposit? He did set that up with the new company) The only issue with the check, other then it being a live one, was the taxes taken out by the Commonwealth of Taxachusetts.

Speaking of taxes, the Webmaster has been working on his and Mrs. Webmasters taxes. It looks like for the first time ever, the Angry Webmaster is going to have to send the Infernal Revenue Service money. Not a lot, thankfully, especially since the Infernal Revenue Service will be stealing refunds from people who haven't signed up for Obamacare. All we can say is Turbotax is your friend, even if Intuit screwed up by changing the backend in order to make more money.

The Webmaster went nuts yesterday as indicated by this blog posting. It seems that he's just about had it with all the snow we've been getting this year. Frankly, he's not alone in his exhaustion. To be honest, we fully expect that the next moonbat who screams "Global Warming" is going to be lynched.

On the rants side of the house, we received a few this week including a rather lengthy one in the Families section. We could use more of course.

Until next time...

Stay Frosty Angry!

February 15, 2015

Good day all. Once again, we have been digging out from yet another foot of snow that we were told would never happen again. It's also freezing cold out there.

The Angry Systems Administrator ran off last night under cover of the storm and saw Kingsman: The Secret Service. He did a review on it this morning. he liked it.

We received a few rants late this week, so we assume some people were able to dig out from last weeks bout of Global Warming.

The webmaster reports that the new job is "Interesting." He has a lot to learn, however, he is also dealing with his network account being screwed up. Currently, he doesn't have the access he needs to do his job just yet. The job does look interesting, but not that difficult. The commute, however, was as bad as we all expected. The Webmaster has been averaging 1 hour each way, when normally it shouldn't take more than 30 minutes give or take.


Until next time...

Stay Angry!

February 8, 2015

Good day all. It looks like our ranters are still buried in the Global Warming we received over the last few weeks. We had no new postings come in. Oh well.

The Webmaster returns to gainful employment tomorrow, provided he doesn't get snowed in again. He's going to have to commute now, instead of working from home. He's also going to be contracting for a few months instead of having a permanent, (If there is such a thing these days), although this contract could go permanent in a few months. We shall see.

In any case, more global warming is coming so the Webmaster and all the others need to go out and clear the parking spaces at the Anger Central World headquarters.

Until Next Time...

Stay Angry!
(and warm if possible)

February 3, 2015

Good day all. Our apologies for the delay in posting, but between the Superbowl and the storms, along with the Webmaster's getting his paperwork in order for his new job, it's been a bit hectic. So without any further delay, here is last weeks rants, such as they are.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!
(And warm. It's damn cold out!)

January 25, 2015

Good day all. We had a number of posts this week, which sort of makes up for the previous 2 weeks of nothing.

The Webmaster has been going through all the things he needs to do for his new job. He's had his drug test, and due to the company, he is also required to have blood tests and a checkup before he can start. Due to the logistics, it's likely that the Webmaster will have to push off his start date by one week.

We're looking down the barrel of a "Historic blizzard" starting tomorrow. We are looking at two to three feet of snow by Wednesday. We are NOT looking forward to this. At least the Angry Groundskeeper has the Snowblower serviced and working, There is also an ugly rumor there might be another storm next weekend.


Well, it's time to make sure the Angry cafeteria is fully stocked with Beer and Bacon.

Until Next time...

Stay Angry!

January 18, 2015

Good evening everyone. For the second week, no new rants have come in. We're finding this rather odd considering the hits we're seeing on the site. We're having some problems believing the stats since traffic is a lot higher then normal. We don't think the Blog can be the sole reason for this. Oh well, maybe someone will complain this week.

On the job front, some good news. The Webmaster has landed a contract job in the healthcare industry. It's three months and then can be converted to full time employee. The Webmaster is glad for the job, but is a little concerned with the direction the job is taking. He can keep his options open and see how the job proceeds. The Webmaster has to get a few medical tests, a criminal background check and he's going for his drug test next week.

On a more personal matter, the Angry Webmaster is now a great uncle. The Angry Niece had a baby boy last week. Mom and Son are doing well.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!
(And post about it here please)

January 11, 2015

Good day all. First, absolutely no rants came in this week. We are most unhappy.

On the Great Job Search, the Webmaster was contacted by a headhunter about a job that is a bit of a step backwards, but has the potential for major growth and damn good pay. It's also a company the Webmaster is familiar with and would like to work for. No, we won't be naming it as is our policy. (Need to protect the employees of Anger Central from Corporate retaliation) The Webmaster is starting to see an uptick in job postings, both permanent and contract. Obviously his preferences are to a permanent position.

We also renewed the Angry.net domain for another 5 years. It wasn't due to expire until the end of the year, but we just decided tog et it out of the way now. It wasn't cheap, so feel free to hit the Paypal icon and send is a few Shekels.

The Webmaster has been posting up a storm on the blog the last week. We think it's safe to say that the Speaker of the House won't be happy with one of the posts.

All in all, it was a dull week last week, other than the serious temperature hikes due to Global Warming. Oh Wait! Sorry, hypothermia was the real issue last week.

Oh well.

Until next time...

Stay Angry!

January 4, 2015

Happy New Year one and all! The Webmaster was able to attend a new years party for the first time in 5 years. The reason for this is that he no longer has a job. :(

The Webmaster has spoken to a couple of companies and headhunters, but is not holding his breath.

On the systems front, we didn't have all that many posts this year. We've seen a major downturn over the years, probably due to people thinking the site isn't "l33t" and loaded with bells and whistles. Hey! Neither is Craig's list!

All in all, 2014 sucked and 2015 is off to a crappy start. Perfect for the cynicism that is the Angry Webmaster.

So, until next time...

Stay Angry!
