irssi and camper_van

Recently I’ve come across a ruby irc server called camper_van. What it does is pretty simple: it communicates with Campfire while acting as an IRC server. That, combined with irssi makes it much more fun to use Campfire for work.

The following is a simple script that starts the server (if not already running) and then opens up irssi in a new gnome-terminal session.

The second file is an example irssi config file (merge it with ~/.irssi/config).
