Peace out double oh, Hello aught one!
I have been giving the New Year a thought. 2001. I hear folks saying "oh one" and it sounds pretty drab. I was hoping you would join me in getting folks to revive the language of the old frontier as illustrated by an episode of The Simpson's*.
Bart: That ain't been popular since aught six, dagnab it.
Homer: Bart, what did I tell you?
Bart: No talking like a grizzled 1890s prospector...consarn it.
As a grizzled 1990s webhead, I hope you join me in calling this year "aught one", dagnab it!

[*From Homer's Barbershop Quartet]
