Right you are.  It originated on MUME, which all of Owen's muds drew heavily
upon.  (Part of the reason they were so popular straight of the bat, I think.)

What's he up to these days, anyhow?  Last time I traded posts with him on
rec.games.mud.admin was a couple years ago, and he was pretty jaded.
I recall him making a statement like, "If it takes me more than 10 minutes to
code, it's not worth my time to implement."
