Who Are We?
DACS in its present form originated from several local computer organizations: the Danbury Computer Society (DCS), Western Connecticut Micro-computer Users Group formerly the Danbury Osborne Group (DOG); Danbury Area Users Group (DAUG); and the Macintosh Users Group of Greater Danbury (MUGGeD.)
