@jalcine Agreed about email, but IRC's lack of built-in support for accessing messages missed when offline makes it suck unless everyone is in the same TZ, has reliable power, network, etc.
@mjog Most channels are logged - the history bit was a solved problem. Also IRCv3 patched this bit re: history via capabilities. Just needed clients to implement it.
As someone living in +11:00, unfortunately I'm sleeping when most of the rest of the world is awake. Dunno what I can do about that, def's don't want to move to America. ;)
