I've tried everything to become a more patient person. Now what?

I'm not a patient person. In fact I'm quite impatient. Little things set me off: from my dogs barking or losing connection to the Internet. Traffic. Stupid things. I've tried everything.

Yes, I've tried everything I can think of to cultivate patience. Meditation. Deep breathing. Calming music. Yoga. Other exercises. Counting to 10. Everything short of actual medication. Nothing works! I find myself blowing up once again over something trivial. I can feel my blood boil and my heartbeat quicken. I fear that not conquering this problem will not only ruin my relationship, but my lifespan as well. What gives? What do I do next? How do I fix this personality flaw that continues to cripple me from day-to-day? Can you recommend any books on the subject? Have any other advice?
