Hi Billfish,
I speak some but my wife is Japanese and probably wouldn't mind helping out. Send me a PM if you still need help.

VonGrantoven - where in Osaka? I'm in Kobe, on Rokko Island, so just 20 minutes away from Osaka.

So how do you say "Kenneth" in Japanese?

Hey FlatSpin,
I am up in Minoh, home of the famous waterfalls and those damn monkeys.
Almost neighbors!

Basically, yeah. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

It seems my name is rather non-English friendly. My father was in the Army and we were stationed in Germany several different times. The 2nd for me was '86-'89. There was a tennis court near our building in the housing area, owned by the DoD. At times when nobody else was on the court, some of the local German kids would play. I never really played, just goofed around with my dad's outdated rackets.

One day I'm goofing alone and about 5 German kids show up. They're about my age and designate their best English speaker to ask to play. I said sure, no problem. He asks my name, but he just couldn't pronounce it. After several repeats and attempts, they huddle up to discuss it.

After a brief chat, the spokesman returned and asked "Can we call you Micheal?"

So "Micheal" is my international name. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
