[Coco] First impression of Roy's adapter.

The adapter connects to the monitor connector on the 
bottom of a CoCo-3 as opposed to the RCA video connector 
in the back.  The monitor connector is for monitors such 
as the CM-8

Basically the adapter takes the signal from the CoCo and 
converts it to a VGA signal so it can be used on most VGA 
monitors.  I assume a flat panel will work.

There has been talk on this list about it, so I assumed 
most poeple knew of it.  I hope that's the case and I 
didn't let anything out of the bag. :/
