ZNC is an advanced IRC bouncer
ZNC will remain connected to an IPv4 or IPv6 IRC server even while you
are offline. You can reattach your client at a later time and catch up
with what happened while you were gone via the history buffer. You can
add additional users under one running process, useful for public shells
