If I were you, I might go the really simple route. Just grab supybot, tell it
to never respond to anything in the channel (respond privately), and enable the
ChannelLogger plugin which comes with it. Then you can do as you wish with
these logs. I do almost exactly this to log channels, post the logs publicly,
and run pisg on them. Supybot is quite silent until you add extras that make it
talk as long as you have to respond privately (which is a simple little config
option). There's even a tool to quickly build your initial config file.

Just a suggestion..
