For the past year or so, irssi has been my primary IRC client. At first, I joined just one channel on one server. Then, it started growing. The more projects I participated in, the more channels I had. Currently, I’m on 3 networks and a lot of channels. Recently, I crossed the 100-window mark on irssi and I realized I’m missing people leaving a message or pinging me.
Now I’m using hilightwin.pl. Its a pretty rad script that lets you have a small split window with all your hilights. Hard to miss them that way! Installation is pretty simple too. Downloading the file, place it in
~/.irssi/scripts/autorun. Then run the following:
/run autorun/hilightwin.pl /window new split /window name hilight /window size 5
