Be more specific: plan for what and qualified for what?

Well, I have been on irc for a while, but then I forgot to restore irc 
account in my client because of general laziness. After your mail I'm 
back there.

But generally I'm available per email. I'm trying to respond to every 
question and fortunately there are not much of them. If someone feels I 
don't respond -- alert me in maillist or per phone.
