IRC Shell Server
What is this and why would I want it?
Basically, if you always want be connected to the ENTS irc channel, this is one of the best ways to do it. Some reasons one might want to stay connected would be wanting to read the channel log without having to always be connected yourself, to receive message that were left for you while you were away, to maintain a registered nick without having to worry about still being logged in somewhere else.
There's a few pretty good reasons but basically, many of us just find it easier.
