I forget if the 820 was the exact same board or not, but seem to remember
it was a slightly different design or at least board layout.
The BB was a really great machine... standard parts, clean design, lots of

The publisher of MC had a Semi Official Get-together (SOG) each year at
their house in Bend, OR. It was a long weekend of rafting, picnicing,
technical discussions and board building for the BB users.
