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.

Shintoism and traditional religions

A couple days ago, I explained a black friend about Shintoism. I said Shintoism was a polytheism and a nature worship. Then he said that it was very ancient. I was offended a bit. Shintoism is an important cultural backbone for us Japanese. But he simply said it was ancient. I knew he meant no harm. There was a traditional religion in South Africa, and it was a polytheism and nature worship like Shintoism. I guessed he was taught that was ancient by a missionary. I changed the mood. He invited me to go to church with him. But I said no politely.
