You can set up aliases for your commonly used channels.  

  There are three new commands:
  	@addalias  = 

  Channel aliases are stored in a secret field -- not even
  a wizard can see them.

  To add an alias: @addalias shorty = really-long-channel-name
  To remove an alias: @remalias shorty
  To show all your current aliases: @listaliases

  To speak on a channel using your alias, use a '#' plus the alias name:
  	#shorty The Monkees were funny.
