Algor recently posted an announcement on a couple of the engr newsgroups 
that drew several outraged replies from some ex-users, with no one 
springing to their defense. It's gotten mixed reviews. One thing--you can 
analyze frame and plate structures with ALGOR, but it isn't going to do 
the kind of design work (not design really but iterative analysis) that 
special purpose packages do and its not going to address UBC or design 
code issues that SE/CE's have to deal with.
