Re: I just cant agree
I do not doubt your capacity nor your competence, I honestly believe that you do find solutions for your clients.
What I do not adhere to though is your style of presentation, it is the opposite of modest.
Each of us can blow our own trumpets about solutions that we have implemented that stray a little from the standard but we are simply doing our job.
I really don't understand your arguements about whitepaper solutions, quite often they are all that the client wants or needs.
By offering your client more "exotic" solutions you are actually putting the into a difficult situation because you then become the SPOF. If you are not available then the client would have difficulty in finding someone else that knows, understands and masters the solution. This in itself presents a large risk most notably for small companies.
When I read your articles they sound as much as a sales pitch as anything else, as I have mentioned they do not sound objective. Try going back and reading some of your longer articles you will understand what I mean. This is objective critiscm not personal insult.
Obviously you will only see what you want to see in your own words but try giving a copy of your articles, name removed, and listen to the feedback.
By critising your own work you can only improve. No one cares how good Trevor is but everyone does enjoy reading interesting articles. If you remove the self glory from your writing it would come across much more professionally and would be become much more palatable.
These are my personal thoughts and critisicms, if you prefer not to be critisized just say the word and I will remove all and any of my posts.
Cheer up Trevor, its only El Reg.
Sorry for the spelling, I only have my Galaxy Note today and navigation on longer articles is a pain.
