The definition started out being New Beginner

It started out as newbie. Later it was shortened to newb. Then a while later, the spelling was changed to noob. There was an attempt to change it to nub a few years back, but thankfully, it never really caught on.

At least, that's how I remember it.

I think that today, it means basically the same thing.

Perhaps check out Wikipedia (it's back!) for more information

;-) (that thing to the left is an "emoticon," ASCII characters arranged in such a way as to look like a little person. Emoticons are used to denote emotion, and thereby fill in for non-verbal cues missing from written communication. If you look at that sideways you'll notice that it looks like someone winking and smiling. That emoticon indicates a good-natured intention.)
