Well WP-IRC Plugin (for lack of a better name ) can fetch the number of users online in any IRC channel and can be scheduled to auto refresh it every x minutes.
The count thus fetched can be displayed in the sidebar of your blog using a sidebar widget provided by the Plugin.
You can also allow users to subscribe to email alerts like, “alert me after x number of people has come online”.
Your feedback’s are welcome!
