Exploring new communication channels


IRC is an open standard, it should be possible to add long-term, self-healing logging to it. And in fact I’m working on it.


Turns out this does not work when you are on vacation for two weeks – that button only shows “recent mentions”. So I now have some 6 or so mentions from my time off that I have no way to locate. I guess people will ask again…

Gitter and Zulip actually track which mentions one has seen, and hence do not have this problem.
