I will never be sorry
enough. I invented 'woot'. It was back in my MUD
ding days on Sojourn
. I used it as an exclamation
whenever I struck the killing blow
to a monster
. It spread like wildfire
over the entire MUD, and I had believed it limited
to that branch of the 'net.
Then one day, after Sojourn's split and Toril
's eventual demise, I went on EFnet
, looking for a game to while away the newly-freed night
hours, and alas, I saw on the screen
that stole my breath
away: 'w00t! I g0tZ t1b3r1@N 5Un
!! /msg me!'
I'm so, so sorry.
