irssi For Beginners

“If you’re reading this it means you have an interest in using
irssi, need some help installing irssi or are just browsing. I use
irssi daily in order to communicate with different people in IRC
Chat Channels. I use irssi because I don’t like dealing with
loading up a full Graphical Interface, going through the connection
process and then joining channels. I let my personal VPS maintain
my IRC connection, through the use of screen, and never have to
worry about this. Even if my server restarts for some reason, I
merely restart screen and it auto starts irssi with all my settings
loaded, connections made and channels joined. So, without further
ado, lets begin!”
