Dear IRC user

Please consider switching to screen+irssi, or bip+xchat, or irssi_proxy+irssi or xchat, etc. (This post and its comments has more details).

It is very annoying when you ask me something while I’m away, then disconnect, and then when I finally answer you, you are not connected anymore. If I’m away and you are going to disconnect, please send your question by mail or jabber.

  1. Hi,

    I appreciate my Konversation for IRC, but I am an annoying laptop IRC user (so frequent disconnects). Does anyone know a “IRC proxy” which I could install on my home server and use with Konversation ?

    Regards, OdyX

  2. i have stopped usig IRC all together for communications with people who are not immediately responsive. if i ask a question and someone does not answer it, then i find that asynchronous method called email.i will not use a long-term log in client- andi will not keep logs of everyone else’s conversations, because, well its just not that important to me.

    so no, i will not take your suggestion. i am a user and that is how users use.
