I've been lurking on SL for far too long. Such a wonderful resource, I should try to contribute more.
I'm Rex Walters, but not the Rex Walters (see http://www.nba.com/playerfile/rex_walters/).
I'm American, but my wife is Japanese and I spend a LOT of time travelling to Japan and throughout Asia for my work. I speak Japanese fairly well, but I can't read or write much at all. I've three completely bilingual kids (currently 14, 10, and 7) that I'm trying to get interested in go -- any advice is appreciated.
I'm an admitted Unix geek. I generally have a Linux box somewhere nearby, though I've got to admit that cygwin has made Windows significantly less annoying for me ( http://www.cygwin.com).
I'm on KGS fairly often (my login name is "wrex", I'm currently 8k: http://kgs.kiseido.com/en_US/graphPage.jsp?user=wrex). I rarely turn down a game. :-)
