There is also IRC proxies which logs the channel while you are not
logged in and sends you the log next time you show up.  Personally, I
use Bip to make sure I don't miss a thing on
#webkit-gtk!  But this solution works fine only if you do show up once
per day, if not the logs gets a little big (for #webkit anyway).
