    I doubt it. It's newer slang and probably hasn't made it into any dictionary yet. My ten-year-old Webster's doesn't even have newbie.

    Let us know if you find it!

    It's also a newcomer. For instance, I'm a newbie at this forum. I'm not inexperienced, I'm just new.

    Maybe it's an SMS-style abbreviation of 'newbie' - "newB" [do I hear a chorus of 'wash your mouth out with soap and water'? ]
