Should I become an IT Author? Convert spurious rambling

#1
So I write. A\ lot. A crap load. All that for a simple reason; nobody to discuss stuff. So I create ficitious characters in my head with participants that usually vary between, and upto 8 personnas. Sometimes you might be very surprised and wonder wtf which is by consensus, and when I look at it again, I remember, ooh that was the point personna 7 was relaying to personna 2 and who inturn wnats to bring personna 3 upto speed. Eureka! That way only to me. Like you could drive from work home to find that you absolutely don't remember being on the road, but somehow you are in the familiar parking spot at home nonetheless, having not driven off a ravine or cliff! One might be surprise that I write most of the stuff actually day dreaming.....and when I come to we are 5 miles down the article......when I remember its time to duly uphold my traditions and disabuse some drumsticks or thighs; how dare I! Off to the refrigerator I sprint after hitting post. Then go to somewhere else online, daydream some, then its time to sleep and its adios!
8 years ago or so, I picked up out of the habit of compiling a "Technical Encyclopedia" or "Quick Reference Book" using quicck CTRL^Fs. The "Appendix" at the bottom is usually the "main part" for simple reason; disaggregation of the composite abstract from the iterative concrete; the more succinct aspect that states how the various conceptual elements interact with each other; whereas the more turgid aspect that fully explains the constitution of those elements; it becomes easy to visualize the holistic picture, absent of jargon, to then be followed by a line by lie perusal of the appendices to fully comprehend the subject in its entirety. As most of you have probably realized in your own profession, and particularly at expert level of highly technical fields, accuracy is not a matter of convenience, but rather a necessity. You don't need to pour through the Appendiix often, and as such ur not too burdened when quickly revisiting an item in the body section, and only when needed, to then read the full description in the appendix. The entries further down are appendix level run downs, hence the relatively higher degree of verbosity. If I was shaky with the concept of SDN, I would simply Ctrl_F and reread the appendix entry in full; more often than not you won't need to once you grasp the subject, where you will read the condensed description at the top...... That is the idea....
Look at my behind, I already have another news paper article ...lol....
The process has spun up a lot of good engineers, including those who work for Cisco like I do.

Cisco ISE – Identity Services Engine: This platform serves the Cisco Identity Server functionality , which runs several processes to limit network access only to entities that have been validated at the correct privilege level, as well as a host of other functionalities pertaining to identity and security. Some processes it can run include the “AAA Server Role” , and to this specific role it is, not exactly a feature parity successor to the Cisco ACS, or Access Control Sever, but functionally it is effectively as such, 802.1X Radius Server for NAC (Network Access Control), third-party integration e.g. with security services such as McAfee AV(Anti-Virus) , and the HIPS(Host Intrusion Prevention Systemm), plus quite a number of others.
SDN-Software Defined Networking
With the bleeding age paradigm coined Software Defined Network; tersely, a dynamically programmable network where here has been a decopling of the control plane from the data plane, such that, contrary to legacy systems where each physical device was a fusion of control/data plane, SDN can migrate control plane to a centralized orchestrator, which in turn can be used to programmatically build the entirety of the network infrastructure before the hardware ever arrives, on the orchestrator, and as such when the relevant hardware arrives, you simply set up and power on the hardware device, followed by a “push” from the orchestrator, or maybe “pull” depending on the order of operations, to be followed by basic connectivity tests between the elements as required, after which process the device goes live!
Hardware Abstraction: The hardware is here considered to be “stateless”, and it’s functionality is abstracted, meaning a “software centric” approach is in use; that a software configuration capsule fully defining the functionality of the device is indexed in an orchestrator, whereas the hardware piece is relegated to an interchangeable plug and play component, not much unlike the disk where you keep a burned copy of a pirated song. You carry CD but the “meaningful good” is the “song”.

Kuja uniandikie articles
Kenya....U wananchi are funny read yours and your fellow responses in different threads and forums....go ...just read and see what the collective barometer says about you...
No wonder the country can never advance like it ought.....anytime soon...
uniform cynicism...uniform love of gravity in all matters...uniformly hating for anything that doesn't benefit them personally......energetic in detailing tragedy, conspiracies, and misery; the only time there appears to be collective "joy"....
The competition always is "who's the most proficient hater"-and always THIS is the OLYMPICS.....It would be instructive to side by side lay responses to the same exact question from forums "far out of Kenya" vs "This"

I think the geenie will stay in the bottle through yet another winter....

Yes, what a bright future! You will be doing this:
public class announce extends count( );
{
}
You actually take time to syntactically annotate vanity? Even prayers won't help...You might even be on the verge of a 7th generation language to detail the very same...

Anyone present who got something substantive to input, let's talk. I visit various threads, and the only time I hit reply it relates to the subject, or I carry on. People prone to "mob psychology" are the ones who insert all these "wise cracks" , which sadly are as degenerative as the "crack" that rocked the US ghettos in the early 80s; quickly followed by the flock of sheep and I'm 100% confident you do conur on that trend.....inculcate autonomy and you be assured to infinitely more achieve in your endeavors..
People don't recognize it but such forums can double as strong learning tools, used properly.. It you read a thread and see an angle that hasn't been covered, the act of "penning" the though...etches them in your mind....and more power for you if in your real job there is a high level of memos to be drafted, quarterly or annual reports, or otherwise, the "leadership" talk that invites the passion of those under you that they step up and uplift your company....and instills methodological mannerisms in dissecting ideas from convoluted mhhhhhhzzzz!! to Eurekas!!!

You have a syntax error. And a bigger sin of insulting OOP. Am trying to think of a scenario where a class Announce extends Count but can't. Maybe implements Countable...
You'd be an excellent PHP dev because most of them ignore interfaces.[/QUOTE
Oh so now its prehypertext processors.....I would have been infinitely impressed if you were on the verge of a new coding language for manipulation of dynamic hyperlink content for a "Self-Autonomy" website....Not a workout session for mud slinging.
A programmer is SANS the one who can input data according to some prescribed syntax....the cat at home could punch away at that too....they are merely INSTRUMENTS inasmuch as my keyboard is in this "dialogue"..the true programmer will be presented a problem and will through careful thought actualize a solution....not lingering on whether that semi colon to end that line or this set of curly brackets changes the context of a particular block of data you are working on....And you r demonstrating a striking mastery of the tools but zilch problem solving........so go and think very hard.....U've succeeded when you breach the threshold of vanity....Or maybe you can go seek out the likes of Wozniack, Larry Wall, and a reincarnated Djikstra(for an alternative shortest path first algorithm), or come up with a keying algorithm more robust than that contrived by Rivest, Shamir, and Adleman once extant technology is powerful enough to solve the problem of factoring large prime numbers.
'..... more seems you just wanna do it for some selfies to come brag about over here.....wake up from the orgy of vanity and go solve real problems.

You wont get any help here the people here are like dinosaurs. There's forums for everything nowadays. Am in several. I cant discuss econometrics here so I do it at a PhD forum am in, Im a tupperware fan, Im in a tupperware forum - we do rotational tupperware parties, I write badly but I love to read so am in bookclub forums where we have targets for books we read, we discuss literary styles. Find your community, hapa ni walevi na washerati utapata tuu. Im reading a book by Professor Tillar about Non Fiction writing, to learn how to write better because I write alot but not very well because am used doing incremental derivatives so my punctuation fell on the way ,laast time I did English though I got an A was in High School. Dont apologise for who you are . Everyone who was a genius was told to see a psychiatrist for being different.

Start a blog. You can earn money from it if the traffic is high.

how will you make money out of this?
You asked a very good question. From the get go it is more a hobby than an "entrepreneural" venture; which is not to say steps will not be taken to commercialize.. By day am a consultant engineer; wherein the focus is to assess hld,lld, troubleshooting complex issues, and charting "tech refresh" milestones...
A customer will typically come forth with an overarching problem to tackle a specific challenge the customer needs addressed. A good component is interfacing with the managerial and executive level personnel who got the final say at the end of the day;non-technical briefs with allegory to many mundane activities everybody understands, all the while rendering PRIMACY to their bottom line goals and how the solution realizes the goal. Lose sight of the latter and you might as well turn into Carlos Santana and try enchanting goats using your guitar, as they hold steadfast in their grazing,no lesser or more , no matter how "sexy" his crescendos, diminuendos, and fortissimos get.
On commercialization, I will look at gigs such as being a "Technical Writer" for well established IT training institutions if the hours are flexible enough. Blogs on various forums will be used to gauge how people react to the material, without incurring potential loss of capital, and based on the feedback then try to align with some publishers and talk business, and my day job will be there all along if the stuff explodes straight on my face lol. Independent consultancy would be a mid-to-long term goal, capital permitting, as well as the proper set of cirsumstances. If I get a publisher who will "risk/or bet" on me, then I will generate actual books. I strongly suspect I migth be more fruitful writing on the more complex topics, because of my tendency to "get lost in the weeds of it", and that might bewilder that IT pilgrim and cause them PTSD so much they quit IT lol. A lot of people call it "obsessiveness", which a posteriori is simply not the case, and my retort is usually simple; if I describe a migraine there might be a 360 digression from a medical doctor discussing the same, and neither in their own right would be in a state of "overthinking"; for example, in computing binary system is the language of the computers(which opposed to the analog that is indefinitively variable, the digital is the manipulation transistor transitions between on and off), with hexadecimal, a variant of the same; they are very good at floating point Math and poor in Artificial Intelligence of say emotions, and in IT we deal with so much binary that without any stretch of overthinking I can type as I am right now a bunch of multiples of powers of 2(1 to 16)-2 4 8 16 32 64 128 256 512 1024 2048 4096 8192 16384 32768 65536, 2^20 1048576; 2^24 ~16 Million; 2^32 4,294,967,295.....that took barely a minute, and something here or there might be slightly off if you check it out but I wasn't over thinking...we just repititively use them ad nauseam as "variable widths" for fields in plenty of applications. And yet again, I had started day dreaming and rambling, but I think you got the idea....

psychiatric help should be top of your priorities
You are a wise Man(or is it woman?)......do you offer counselling services? And are you sure you are not the one who actually needs counselling for being an idler? We must be keen to put the devil's workshop out of business!....its funny how I was describing a tendency that you emulate perfectly; not sure if you had actually read it... Actually you can help me run an errand of proof reading a document I shall soon paste....give or take 60 or so pages....it will make your time worthwhile.

It is true what you said. Whenever got a serious issue to discuss I usually retire to the specialty forums......here I mostly come to fill in my journal and observe wananchi wetu doing marvellous if entertaining stuff...
