Awesome piece of software - FOSS Irccloud alternative

Yeah, and with far better uptime than irccloud. I used to pay for irccloud and due to numerous outages, including one that was like 24h, I switched to thelounge. I have no love for running my own services due to lack of time, but in this case it was needed, uptime on irc is critical for me as that is my work IM.

Very stable project. My only wish about it it would be too see more active development (more releases). If you have more than 30-40 channels it may be bit inconvenient to use.
