IRC proxy for people who use IRC from different workstations
dircproxy is an IRC proxy server designed for people who use IRC from lots of different workstations or clients, but wish to remain connected and see what they missed while they were away. You connect to IRC through dircproxy, and it keeps you connected to the server, even after you detach your client from it. While you're detached, it logs channel and private messages as well as important events, and when you re-attach it'll let you know what you missed. . This can be used to give you roughly the same functionality as using ircII and screen together, except you can use whatever IRC client you like, including X ones!
