A little about myself.
I am an IT technician, participate in many projects, some HTML work, and reading a lot. I also contribute articles to IT magazines about Open Source Software as a core member of Japan Apache Users Group. I've been in computer related fields from 1978. starting in college, nuclear physics major, I had to take a class in FORTRAN and that was it, I was hooked on the machines. I started working first as an application programmar at a system development
company. Then moved on to a system integration company, and specializing in data communication, small & mid size systems. I run a small intranet at home, a router, Windows Servers, Windows Desktops and CentOS Linux . The Linux runs DNS, HTTP, FTP, SMTP, and POP3 making it nice for software testing and development.

What is Englic?

They say that over 80% of information in Internet are written in English. English is a common language in Internet world. But someone argue that a real common language is Englic, not English. They say Englic means English-like language or English-based language.

As you know, there are many different English all over the world. Australian speaks Australian English. Philippino speaks Philippino English. Indian speaks Indian English. Why isn't there Japanese English?

My Taiwan friend speaks English very
fluently. He can debate anything in English with native English speakers. But Taiwanese has no distinction between he and she, then he sometime call his wife he though he isn't a gay.

Yes, English is standard language in the world today. It’s true. But this doesn't mean that  American English is correct and others aren't correct. If you claim to Osaka people that Tokyo dialect is correct Japanese and  you have to speak Japanese with Tokyo accent, not Osaka accent, Osaka people will be mad.

English is the same. American people must accept there are verity English all over the world and American  English is main but one of them.
