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....
FOOD FIGHT !!!!
