[KLBC] 4 more questions...

Hi again, I wanted to translate this into Klingon:

"I am writing this because I need to practice my Klingon."

And came up with:

tlhIngan HolwIj vIqeqnISmo' 'oH vIghItlhlI'.

But it raised a few questions for me...

1) 'oH is "it"... how can I say "I am writing THIS"?
2) Could I also use just "tlhIngan" instead of "tlhIngan Hol" when 
referring to the Klingon language ("Klingon")? (Probably not, all the 
examples use Hol, but I'm just checking...) Btw, the -wIj is placed 
correctly this way right?
3) Is this sentence even overally correct or is it too ackward?

And another question unrelated to that sentence:

4) Can I use -Daq with things like the Internet? ("there are not many 
Klingons on the Internet") Or must it really be a real, touchable location?

Thanks again for the assistance. :)
