Bouncer is currently a VM that serves as a bouncer to IRC.

Usage

A user with a COSI LDAP account can log in and are automatically put into a tmux session. This allows for a session to be stored even if the ssh connection is closed. They can log into any command line irc client (irssi, weechat, etc.) and join COSI's irc channel at ##cosi on Freenode (server url: chat.freenode.net).

When you detatch from tmux (by pressing ctrl-b d), your ssh session automatically closes, but you will be brought directly back into what you were last using the next time you log in.
