digital group (properly all-lc) had nothing to do with Data General. They
were a fanatical mail-order vendor of their own micro and peripheral kits,
led (the operative word) by a Dr. Robert Suding and located somewhere in
Arizona (?) The computers had multiple processors for maximum software
compatibility; the designs were arcane as hell, making the kits difficult
to construct.
