Hmmm... The idea has a perverted sort of merit - T-Shirts with "The box said 
Win95 or better, so I installed LUNIX" would seem to be appropriate...

They mention "briefing breakfasts" in the newsletter - not being one to knock 
back a free meal at ANYTIME of the day, I'm attending - plus you get lots of 
freebies usually - like "eval" copies of XP that can be used as coasters / 
targets / chewtoys / etc....

Maybe if ALL SLUG registered (using their company addresses, of course) and 
we all attended together....
