Hi, My name is Kirk. I've been in and out of Japan for over 20 years. I used to work as a translator in telecommunications in Tokyo. Now I work at home as a freelancer, specializing in press releases but do a lot of tech too. Passed JLPT1 a while back (1992).
I always feel there's so much I don't know, but I signed up to try to help out where I can. I wish we had this kind of thing when I was studying. I hope some of my advice comments will be helpful for someone, and I hope I am able to learn from others as well.
