While messing with chat stuff today I spun up BitlBee to give it a try. BitlBee acts like a gateway connecting to disparate messaging accounts/protocols and exposing them as an IRC server.

I've got folks scattered across several chat programs and get real tired of managing several chat windows. Now I can handle all chatting from a single IRC client. Seems to be working well so far, we'll see how it holds up through the week.

@rho nice! Good to reduce the memory sprawl from all those different programs.
