Hello! I'm quốc Thái “RPGReki” Chung, read: /kʷuə̌kp tʰaǐ rɛ̄kì cʰʊ̄ŋm/, or simply Thái or Reki. I'm a Bavarian Swabian of Vietnamese descent, and I currently live near Cologne. My focus is in Linux, but that doesn't mean I can't work with other OSes. I'm a typical IT guy with interests in creative writing, vintage audio hardware, and Riichi Mahjong. I enjoy playing JPRGs, preferably the turn-based variant. While I do like platformers and action games, but I kinda suck at those.
