comment Is しまった an appropriate translation for “Oops”?
As an aside to the actual question, you may want to use some other phrase instead of trying to literally translate "Oops". For example, an incorrect password on Facebook gets you パスワードが間違っているようです (with some additional wording afterward).

comment Why does 今度【こんど】 mean “next time”?
Why shouldn't it be confusing? We basically have the same problem in English.

comment Slang: What does テラス mean?
[As to why you'd want to "roll on the floor laughing" in the context of declining an invitation, I don't have a definitive answer] -- Why not, people use LOL in English for everything these days, even things that aren't funny at all.

comment Etymology of それはそうと
@Billy: You're right, must've been crazy Wednesday or something.

comment Etymology of それはそうと
It seems quite literal to me. 「それはそう」is "that's that (way)", 「と」is "and". "Well that's that, and ...." So it makes sense to mean "by the way".
