A lot of people use ncurses based IRC clients like irssi, epic and BitchX. These are clients you can easily detach from when you're remote. I add a request to the IRC client developers to work on a standards based logging like XML. This way I could use xchat when at home, detach, and re-attach in an ncurses client when remote.
