I used Colloquy for a while, too.  Although it was hefty on the RAM
usage, I quit using it because connecting and disconnecting when
putting the laptop to sleep and waking it frequently was annoying to
IRC users on some channels I frequented.  I now ssh to a screen
session at home, in which I run irssi.  I use xchat at work, since I
rarely turn that computer off.
