Is there a console (e.g. ncurses) interface to X-Chat (like how there's a finch for pidgin)? Alternatively, is there a program that is completely compatible with X-Chat prefs and log file formats?
The thing is, I like to leave X-Chat running from my server rather than my laptop for a number of reasons (uninterrupted presence, centralized logging, etc.), but I don't particularly enjoy having to VNC/NX in, esp. as the server is located across the country. SSH would be preferable.
If there is no such alternative interface, have any others been in this situation and have tips to offer? Is there anything like an "IRC proxy" that provides these features which folks recommend? Thanks in advance!
