This site says launch was 12/3/1997 (American date format): http://www.bricities.com/pochi/EasyUoHistory.html
- I think it's a typo, I'm adding historic events to History of Ultima Online page based on UO Lycaeum's article, it says 03 there too, but I cant find any source on it, most of the posts reporting Sonoma are on 13th. I've put a reference next to the date on that page, but here's another one:
- "Sonoma came up when, Saturday?"
- "I *started* to play on sonoma about 10:00 on Saturday. I was mining when a guy in full plate came running by. I stopped right then and there. It's ridiculous that someone can get their strength up to 60 in one (1) day!"
- both posted on December 15, 1997. Saturday was December 13. Nimuaq 18:22, 11 February 2012 (PST)
