Just finished converting my IRC bouncer setup from using ZNC to pounce  & related  tools . Decided to stop using ZNC in the first place after finally getting fed up with multi client experience it offers, pounce offers much, much better solution OOTB, with each connected client having separate place in the back log. Setup was not as straightforward as with ZNC, but its simplicity and flexibility it offers (I quite like logger being a separate service) will make it worth the effort (effort meaning having to build pounce from source manually on my Ubuntu VPS, AUR spoiled me). Now I'm not sure how stable it will work in the long run but since it's such a simple setup there's not that much that can break so yeah.
We love to post!
