On the website, check mags.
It's a fantastic archive about pre-oric history

TUG changed to Oric Owner's User Group - O.O.U.G or OUG, when the Oric-1 came out and the focus moved from the Microtan to the Oric.

Bob Green seemed to be the main man behind OUG. Instead of the Tansoft Gazette or TUG magazine they came out with Oric Computing.

OUG seem to have some conection with Kenema Associates who produced Hell's Temple, which might explain how they got the Hell's Temple artwork on the front cover of Oric Computing.

Kenema never seem to list the author's name on its software, which is a shame.
