    No fix is needed. The blue is a little weak, but it's only noticable
if you try to do blue text on a black background. A video engineer told me
that it was an S-Video thing. It was never intended to do 80 column text.
All the other color combos look great! See John Kowalski's picture at:
The AD724 picture looks just like my adapter does. It looks even better in
real life.

    I'll be demo-ing it on a 42" plasma at the 'fest.

BTW: Were you at HowardMedical when I was involved with them?? I deisigned
the Slot-Pak. Chicke(sp) was thre then.
