Deploying a ZNC IRC Bouncing Server

Date 13 December 2016

I have recently found myself of IRC more and more often. It is one of the most fun and effective places to be on the internet if you are doing anything remotely challenging with technology. I've used several clients but found that ERC in Emacs really fits my work flow the best.

The main problem I have found is that I am miss out on a lot of action as I can't keep my client logged in all the time. I am very mobile and having a fixed machine connected to the IRC servers the whole time is not an option.

The solution seems to an IRC Bouncer. ZNC is the first one I am trying. I will let you know how it goes.
