The ORD-GROUP is the project group that designed, built and used the (late)
ORDINATOR system during the years 1983 to 1990.

On the picture above you can see the original ORD-GROUP,

The ORDINATOR, a multi-user CP/M machine, also attracted users
from outside the ORD-GROUP. During the later years of the project
(starting around 1985) some of those users became so entangled
with the project that they became a sort of auxiliary project group members.
You can find these people in the People section of the website.
All of the original ORD-GROUP members thoroughly appreciate the
systems understanding (from basic hardware through system software
to high-level programming languages) they gained from the project
and related activities at DJOE; we often find this understanding
lacking in our present-day associates.
