My college blocks IRC access, so I was thinking maybe i
could relay through my home connection. Only problem
is that my parents will balk at the idea of leaving a
computer on 24/7 in their house, but the router is
always on and connected to DSL. Would it be possible,
given the hardware limitations (of which I honestly know
nothing about) to add a limited BNC or BitchX client so I
could use IRC directly through my router?
