No, that’s not a typo, it has a lower case “o” and it really was pronounced the way it’s spelled.
Bogus was an under-the-radar project to build a really good CP/M 3 machine and was the work of two engineers, Dave Warker on software and Bob Grieb on hardware. Bogus:
Money was flying all over the place so building side projects went completely unnoticed in late 1983/early 1994. Dave and Bob built a few, the company went chapter 11 and everything was lost. A few years later Dave was at the Trenton Computer Festival and found someone selling blank boards. A deal was reached where Dave and Bob would build a few for the seller in exchange for a few. Dave got the BIOS done and Bob continued hardware development for a few more years. Dave, Bob and I each had one.
A horrible picture, but it’s just the keyboard, the PC board under the sheet of paper and the small display. The machine under it is an ACE-500, not part of the BoGUS. The vertical board is an SD card interface Bob built so we didn’t need to use disk drives:
More history. The keyboard is from a Human Designed Systems terminal. Dave worked for HDS for a few years, and I joined the company not long after he left.
