FWIW on the Color thing - I NEVER saw a C4P on a color monitor at the OSI Users group meetings as a kid - everyone used monitors much of the type you used. I actually used the 'modified' RCA TV on the C1P, you really needed a better monochrome monitor with extra bandwidth to make 64x32 decently readable
