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.

South Africa isn't an English country

South Africa isn't an English country. Almost all people can speak English. But native English speaker is less than 9 percent. They usually speak their native languages, whites speak Africans, blacks speak Tsonga, Venda, Xhosa and so on. 
They also really love chatting. They are talking very quickly their language. I cannot understand at all what they are talking. Of course, when I ask something in English, they answer English, but they back to their language soon.
A colleague asked me why I didn't join their chatting. I couldn't find a word to answer.
