'miau' is a small, fully featured IRC bouncer. Features include so-called quicklogging, logging, auto-opping, and dcc-bouncing. Most features can be enabled/disabled with a configure script. 'miau' offers a service a bit like HTTP-proxy, but for IRC networks. The difference is that when IRC-client disconnects from bouncer, the connection to the server isn't necessarily lost, so your nick can stay online and cannot be taken by the others. In case bouncer does loses the nick, it can try to get it back automatically. Also, when using bouncer, the hostname appearing in IRC is that of the machine the bouncer is running at, not the one you are IRCing from.
