I used to deal with it with multiple monitors or even multiple machines, but that was a bit of a failure. My attention was spread too thinly, I felt drained while not achieving much either in or out of IRC. Now I have IRC on a workspace of its own. I dip into it frequently but irregularly, not breaking my concentration unless I want to. When I look at it, I look into whichever channels I feel like at the time. Sometimes I scan through all which have had any activity. If someone's used my name I hunt through backlog until I find it and usually reply.
