Get GUMMed

     The Gurus of Unix Meeting of Minds (GUMM) takes place Wednesday,
April 1, 2076 (check THAT in your perpetual calendar program), 14 feet
above the ground directly in front of the Milpitas Gumps.  Members will
grep each other by the hand (after intro),  yacc a lot,  smoke filtered
chroots in pipes,  chown with forks,  use the wc (unless uuclean),
fseek nice zombie processes,  strip,  and sleep,  but not,  we hope,  od.
Three days will be devoted to discussion of the ramifications of whodo.
Two seconds have been alloted for a complete rundown of all the user-
friendly features of Unix.  Seminars include "Everything You Know is
Wrong",  led by Tom Kempson,  "Batman or Cat:man?" led by Richie Dennis
"cc C? Si! Si!" led by Kerwin Bernighan,  and "Document Unix? Are You
Kidding?" led by Jan Yeats.  No Reader Service No. is necessary because
all GUGUs (Gurus of Unix Group of Users) already know everything we
could tell them.
