1) Attempting to get back on target, I too have a watchman with a faulty
screen, black IIRC.

2) It would be fun to find someone who cracked the Watchman format so
as to be able to author "new" disks.

3) Going off onto the tangent, I have found some camcorders with BW tubes
that take standard NTSC signals.  Not sure how commonly the standard signals
are used on various monitors' pinouts.  Modern equipment mfg'ers must punch
out OEM Color LCD monitor assemblies for about $20/each.  It's a shame that
the only NTSC/or/VGA ready mini-monitors (sub 2") I've seen start at about
