I work for IBM Canada on the Eclipse Platform (www.eclipse.org) and am a graduate of the University of Waterloo.

I study Japanese and Sogetsu ikebana and spend my free time playing the piano, reading light novels and visual novels, watching anime, playing video games, and programming.

comment What is the meaning of all those “w”s in email and SNSs?
I was finally able to ask my Japanese friend to cross reference what you said and he agrees. Thank you for pointing this out, Tsuyoshi.

comment IT system renewal: Can I say 更新 for “renewal”?
I'm not sure 改善 is the right word to use in this context as it seems to be used most often for things like services provided by the government and environment-related improvements (sewage and air air quality and such) or other more "physical" and "tangible" improvements like roadwork. It feels weird to me to use 改善 for an IT project.
