I would call you a nerd but some have tagged that a positive quality. Instead I will be more accurate and call you a douchebag. Douchebag.

So, I've always wondered...why OOF? It should be OOO, but Microsofties use OOF. Gimme the lowdown on why, and you'll be my hero. Was OOO already taken?

Fun video. My friend ran the "NT Compatible" lab back in the day. I used to love to go visit and hangout. One of my favorite quotes of all time was spoken in his lab. One of the tech partners spent the night playing Quake with us. He started with a full 12 pack of Coors Light, "The Silver Bullet never lets you down". Eight hours later, the sun was rising and we decided to head home. On the way out, he turned to us and, with utter sincerity and disbelief, muttered, "I can't believe I licked that twelver." That line said anywhere would be classic enough, but said on the MS campus in a lab...priceless.

Oh and tell your workmate, Fresca is available at Safeway. =)

Can I be your hero instead! :P

"OOF was a command used in the days of Microsoft’s Xenix mail system, which set a user as ‘Out of Facility’ - ie Out of the Office. The usage of the term ‘OOF’ just stuck, as did the term ‘Little r’ (e.g. on an email sent to a distribution list, "Who wants to go to the cinema tonight? Little ‘r’ if you’re interested", meaning reply just to me) - as preserved in Outlook with CTRL+R for Reply, and CTRL+SHIFT+R (aka Big R) for Reply All."

"msexchangeteam.com" is the least fortunate corporate url I've ever seen.
