Why not set up an Amazon EC2 instance? The lowest tier is essentially

I tried getting around it by using a SOCKS5 proxy through my shell account on dream host, but apparently the IRC server blocks inbound connections from dreamhost ("proxy abuse").  The IRC server is hosted by a third party, so I can't make any configuration changes to the server itself.
