Don't spend time on IRC any more as it's UX is not great.

I have Matrix with Element setup to connect to some Freenode channels.

Although not sure how active they are still.

I once used Textual IRC client and ZNC network bouncer (via LunarBNC) to always keep me logged in to the servers as well as it keeping history logs when I am away.

IRC commands

Textual keeps a command reference here.

  • /list - Open channel list.
  • /msg *nickserv set <yourNSpassword> - Lets Nickserv autologin you. Can then run /nick <your-nick> to login.


  • If I ever get issues with logging in and me being Guest. I can: 1. /msg NickServ RELEASE <nickname> <password> 2. /nick nikivi my nick
