	Please can I swap Symbolics 'poor' support for the 'support' I get
	from other, larger manufacturers.  At the very least Symbolics have

    SLUG is not part of Symbolics, it is an organization of the users.

	       I would pay to have Dug or Sug. 

    You have to pay to be a member of SLUG, and I expect most other users'
    groups have membership fees.

    Is Dug supposed to be a DEC users' group?  I believe their users' group
    is named DECUS, and it has always been very active.  They have a large
    catalog of contributed software and used equipment.

    There is also a Sun Users' Group, but they don't seem to be very active.


Scandalously, they sometimes go by SLUG (Sun Local Users' Group).
