Now you're going to ask me to look through my old AUUGN archives (yes, 
they're locked away in cardbox boxes somewhere).  AUUG, of course, 
post-dated Unix by a year or so.

We missed the boat on UNIX, so it looks like ORGAN will have to be next 
(assuming anyone here remembers that).  Greg?  Ian?  Chris?  Who the hell 
is here, anyway?
