I have a Sun GDM 20E20 (multisync) montior available, which has been
converted to VGA (or at least, attempted to).

It was working properly (via an adapter) before I hacked off the 13W3
connector, but after wiring a VGA connector to it, there is corruption on
the screen (dark image in places). I suspect it is my dodgy soldering, and
getting it up to scratch is probably just a matter of cutting off the
connector, and soldering a new one on.

I can't be bothered spending any more time on this monitor, and am cutting
my losses and giving it away (I have a 13W3 to VGA adapter on hand anyway,
so I'll be using that with another 20E20 monitor).

I found the following pages useful:

I also have a number of HP Envizex II Xwindows based thin clients, and an
SGI Indigo (with 17" Trinitron monitor), any of which I will swap for a cool
and interesting toy that you are bored of, or chocolate :)
