> hey guys. I don't know if there was thread on this earlier. Who can tell me where Hax0r talk comes from? All this l337 and W00t! business has me pretty confused. What the heck does w00t! mean anyway? If you spend any amount of time playing games online, you can't help but start to wonder after a while. It would r0x0r if someone could clear it up. Thanks!

Well, I dunno where it comes from or anything. w00t isn't a word. It's just an exclamation, like "I just beat at Quake 3! w00t!". Most hax0r sp33k can be deciphered by context, i.e. if you see "I am 7337!" and whoever says it has just beatan at Quake 3, then you can safely assume that "7337" is synonymous with "good" or "cool".

Dunno if you actually care about any of that.
