Re: [PLUG] Daemonized IRC Client

I use ZNC. It's a bouncer, which means it connects to IRC server such as Freenode, Snoonet, etc for me, and runs as a daemon. Then I can connect to my personal server with any IRC client, Andchat, irssi, etc and it will pass me through to the real IRC network. It works greats because I can keep multiple connections open, so my phone, desktop and laptop are all logged into the same channels under one nick. I additionally run a irssi+screen session connected to my ZNC, purely out of convenience for hopping between laptops/computers.
