MUD's and IRC - a bit of history

There's an error being published countless times in books and articles, which makes me a little sad since it's not really that hard to check out dates before doing such claims. For the record:

MUDs were born in 1977 on the PLATO system.
IRC was born in 1988 on OuluBox.

Yes, this means that MUDs predate IRC.
