you seem to have this porcine fixation...

Thanx so much....!-)

I have been sharing some ideas privately, so here you go too, because
you asked so nicely...

my slightly non-serious fave is:

  SMUG = SCSI Marketing & Users Group

but then we also have:

  SCAG = SCSI Council of Advisory Gurus
  SMEG = SCSI Marketing Enterprise Group
  SMUT = SCSI Marketing & Users Team
  SMAC = SCSI Marketing Advisory Council
  SCUM = SCSI Council of Users & Marketeers

and really stretching things:

  MUTS = Marketeers and Users Teaming for SCSI
  CATS = Council of Advisors and Technoids for SCSI
  WORMS = World Organization of Researchers and Marketers of SCSI
  STUF = SCSI Team for User Fidelity
  STUD = SCSI Team for Users & Developers
  SPIL = SCSI Parallel Information League
  SWIL = SCSI World Information League
  SCIDU = SCSI Council Integrating Developers & Users
  FATSLOBSS = Formal Advisory Team to Sell Lots Of Blazing SCSI Stuff
  JUGHEADS = Joint User Group Helping End-users And Developers of SCSI
  STINC = "SCSI's Time Is Now" Committee
  TWITS = The World Information Team for SCSI
  SANC = SCSI Advisors for the Next Century
  STAI = SCSI Team of Advisors to the Industry (?!)

and of course:

  **** = SCSI High-performance Industry Team

had enough yet...?-)

(needless to say, no one should take any of this personally or
