Following is the notice sent to the San Jose Mercury News for publication:

        -- WEDNESDAY  April 25, 1990 --

        AT&T UNIX Computer Users' Group - South Bay - will meet at 7 p.m.
        in the AT&T Building, 1090 E. Duane Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA.

        New users' workshop with Sharon Stluka of AT&T begins at 6:30 p.m.

        Call Thad Floryan at (415) 961-5157 or (408) 985-7100 for more info.

of RSW in Santa Cruz, CA (Robinson Schaffer Wright) who will be discussing and
demo'ing their "/rdb" database product which runs on various UNIX platforms.

Also on the agenda for this meeting is the nomination and election of officers
for the forthcoming year, 1990-1991.

Both featured activities will be followed by the "Random Access" session in
which everyone is invited to participate: to air your questions and problems,
to help others with their dilemmas, or just to have a good time.  :-)

Who should attend?  Most attendees own UNIXPCs (aka 3B1 aka PC 7300), and many
have 6386 WGS and 3B2 systems (e.g. 3B2/310, etc.).  EVERYONE is welcome and
invited to attend!

I usually ask that you e-mail me for a map and/or directions, but since I'm
back to a 25-hours/day work schedule, I cannot answer e-mail promptly, so the
"dreaded map" is enclosed below.

Hope to see you there this Wednesday!


Meetings are held at the AT&T facility in Sunnyvale (see map below):

        The AT&T Building
        1090 E. Duane Avenue
        Sunnyvale, CA

The facility is located on Duane, just one block south of US 101 (Bayshore)
just off Lawrence expressway.  From 101, get onto Lawrence, turn right onto
Duane, and proceed straight onto AT&T property; follow the perimeter road to
the "back" of the building, park in the visitor's area, and enter through the
multi-doored entrance.
