Though I really want to talk with you in Chinese, I still won't. I come here firstly to learn from you on Linux. And then something else.

"I really....contact with each other." What I mean is to communicate in Emails not to speak Chinese in the forum.

Anyway if you can speak Chinese I can talk to you here.

I cannot speak it and I cannot read it.
But I can understand it through the movement of the mouth.

I can speak, but not read characters, but I can understand pin-yin good enough (I think). To read my pin-yin guesses you need to be flexible and quite imaginative though.

I could read Kanji before but I've not practice it for years. I thought it was japanese only when I've learned (10 years ago... when I was 13 years old ) but seems like the kanji is also known as Chinese characters .
Hey, we are doing fine, one can read, one can speak, one can read mouths. If we, LQ members team up, soon we have one more chinese here . I love the Chinese and Japanese culture deeply. My home has a lot of oriental stuff .

pinyin but no Hanzi

Xiao Fei,

You can write in pinyin here, unless Jeremy objects, and someone will answer your questions (even if it is just me). However, I don't believe you can write in Hanzi here.

Did you ever go to any of the Chinese forums? Someone suggested this to you, and I think they gave you some url's.

My friend wants to communicate with you, but he wants you to email him in Hanzi, not in English. He is a Chinese man with a lot of computer knowledge, but it is all from a Windoze background. He wants to use Linux very much. Yesterday he and I talked about this. He said he wants to use RedHat. I told him he should talk to you and use RedFlag. I will send him this message.

I think I already sent you his email address. If I did not, email me again and I will. I would not post his email address in a forum

You may have trouble reading English posts. English is my native language, and I have very much trouble reading Linux documentation. It is written for someone with more Linux knowledge than a beginner, so forums such as LQ are the place where we can get started. Just remember two things: all the people in LQ are volunteers. And sometimes a newbie who doesn't really know the answer posts. So be sure to check and double-check before you use the advice.

Hope this helps. Email me again if you need to.

Mingtian wo qu kan wode pengyou.

I wonder if my browser will display Chinese fonts. Could somebody post a message in Chinese characters ( not Chinese written in English alphabet ) ?

对不起,你说什么,我不懂

If a mod gets me, it's your fault jailbait! I didn't read the rules about this

Now let's see who can really read Hanzi sk8guitar!

Try a Chinese/Japanese site . You could try my favorite game company, which does my favorite games ever, Capcom:

Chinaman,

The line of Chinese text that you posted is displayed in my browser as characters from the Greek alphabet, European umlaut vowels, and English special characters such as the British pound sterling sign. It definitely does not display as Chinese characters. I am using Mozilla 1.4.
