difficult to learn. The Users Group can help ease the
learning curve, and suggest sources for additional help.
A project that you are working on may already have been
completed by someone else. The Users Group can help put you
in contact with them.

o The MOTD Newsletter.

o The best reason for joining is that you want to.

Q. What is the MOTD Newsletter.

A. MOTD, or Message Of The Day, is the OS-9 Users Group Newsletter.
It is published four times per year or more often if required.

It contains news of interest to UG members, as well as contacts,
and several regular features.

These include the “President’s Column”, and “Straight From the Horse’s
Mouth”, about the use of OS-9 by Industrial, Scientific and Educational
Institutions. A new column by Joel Hegberg will be starting shortly.
