Maybe it's just one thousand, but that didn't start with M. HOORAY FOR MITICA!!!!!
I have a question...what exactly is "woot"?
its a celebration, its a cheer, except...it isnt done like woot, the proper 1337 way is to go w000t!111
It has a couple of origins.
1) It used to be a term that hackers used in the begining of the internet to describe the root (system admin) account without setting off any red flags.
2) In the game Dungeons and dragons if you ever got to loot something or someone you would usually see "WOW, Loot" from your friends and it was eventually shortened into Woot!
There ya go a short history from google!
Haha...I shoulda known it then...the boyfriend loves D&D...when I first met him he used to refer to it as his "nerd" thing!
Why, thanks!... And thanks to all of you, to you Chase too for putting up and maintaining such a fine place.
BTW, is there , I mean anywhere on the Internet any kind of rating for Forums? Like the most popular, the longest lived, with the most participants and so on? If there is I wouldn't be surprised to see TPF on the top 10 list
OK, now back to my spamming... err... I meant posting... :shock:
I dont think that TPF has been enterd...but it should be!
