IRC isn't cached via any http-proxy (or did I miss anything?). Anyway,
IRC is - IMHO - much less bandwidth demanding than other Internet apps
... (unless you connect your server as an IRC server to another one
...). I have an Internet cafe connected here, and am happy that those
people there almost exclusively use IRC ... their average bandwidth is
somewhere around 5-10kbit/s (if that much ...) on a 64k line...
