How to idle on #dragonfly

A tip for anyone who hasn’t tried this yet: run irssi in screen, and connect to #dragonflybsd on EFNet.  You can then resume your screen session at any time after disconnecting and see the backlog, catch people addressing you directly, etc.

Before anyone says it: yes, I know, tmux works too.
