Persistent chat rooms

And how about to support at least IRC Proxy tools -
So far it looks like every irc proxy is very confused with the channel
leaving with the /PART command.

Is there anyone who is able to use some IRC proxy server with
pidgin - in a way that proxy server is running on 24/7 uptime machine.
And I could use it from my user machine to connect to proxy
server and read the missing messages that have been
posted on the channel ??

Thanks for any proposals....

I think it would be nice persistance solution for pidgin.
