IRC client in Emacs: Riece
I have never used IRC, but in certain areas it seems like an interesting resource (right now I'm learning Haskell, and the Haskell IRC community #haskell seems quite active), so I've decided to give it a go. After looking at a number of IRC clients I have decided to try Riece, which is an IRC client for Emacs. It certainly fits well with my working environment and I can leave the connection open and reconnect from a different computer via a terminal and ssh. I connect via the freenode servers, and this is how it looks like.
I connect to chat.freenode.net, and the most used commands are in this list.
