Welcome to SLUG mailing list

Gee, it is nice to know when you are missed.  Six sites in the past
2 days have asked if they were dropped off the list since they hadn't
received any SLUG mail in a week.

I don't know if there were any submissions to the list, but there
was a problem in the mailing list.  No one notified SLUG-REQUEST that
mail they sent wasn't getting through.

I'll take this opportunity to include the message I send new people.
The host WARBUCKS below will likely change in the next few months.

Welcome to the Symbolics Lisp Users Group mailing list.

This is an ad hoc mail group to exchange information about the care and
feeding, use and abuse, problems and pitfalls, wonders and crocks of the
Symbolics Lisp machines.

There is also a national users group SLUG, Inc. that is loosely related to,
but distinct from, this mailing list.  Joining one or the other does not
necessarily mean you are in both groups.  Being a member of SLUG, Inc.
does not automatically enroll you in the mailing list.   Joining this
mailing list does not make you a member of SLUG, Inc.  For information
about joining SLUG, Inc., please see the file SLUG-INC.INFO (below) or
ask SLUG-Request to send you a copy.  (Electronic mail regarding SLUG, Inc.
membership should be addressed to SLUG-MEMBERSHIP@AI.SRI.COM.)

Mail to the group should be addressed to:

If you have problems, you can also send the mail to

This is a distribution list, and the mail will be forwarded to everyone on the
list.  Requests and questions regarding the list or SLUG, Inc. should be
addressed to:


The distribution list and mail archives will live here at SRI.
Some relevant files for those who care are:

	SLUG.TXT	;the current mail
	SLUG.*		; older mail (* = 871231, etc)
	SLUG-INC.INFO	;Info about SLUG, Inc.

There are miscellaneous LISPM and SLUG related files in the [ANONYMOUS]
directory.  You are welcome to FTP any of these files you want.
WARBUCKS.AI.SRI.COM supports TCP FTP with anonymous login.  (Sorry, the only
directory you can access is USR2:[ANONYMOUS].)

If anyone else has on-line notes, tips, or tidbits, we will be glad to
add them to the directory.

For your convenience, the following mail addresses are available for
communicating with the officers of SLUG, Inc.:

SLUG-TREASURY, SLUG-LIAISON (which goes to Symbolics's liaison for SLUG),

Your friendly list maintainer,

Mabry Tyson
