@tallship Some of the "temporal" may be mitigated via use of a bouncer, e.g. ZNC. Bouncers remain connected on per account/network and channel basis w/configurable scroll back buffers, e.g. 70 - 300 lines.
ZNC is likely the best known ROSS bouncer. Cruises right along on even most minimally provisioned vm offered by this, that, or the other cloud provider of the day....
Feel free to reach out for additional help.
Have a groovy day, eh? 🐕 🌴 🌴 🌴 🌴 🌴 🌴 🌴 🏖
