[balug-admin] Informing speakers/presenters about presentation equipment/facilities

If they've got a "VGA" type output (DE15F, "standard" signal pin-out),
we should be able to work with that okay ("we" (Dick) have converter
that will convert that to NTSC for the overhead (TV type) projector).

I don't know that we've got anything that could directly use
Mac or Mac-like digital video output (DVI, I believe it is).  If that
is the only video output they have available we may have an issue, but I'd
guess Mac laptop likely includes "VGA" style output and/or SVHS
(theoretically we could probably hook up SVHS, but I don't think we've
ever tested that potential theory, and I'm not absolutely sure there is
SVHS input to the video projection equipment ... but it's fairly likely
such input exists).

I (or "we") should probably also make a wiki page for information on
the presentation facilities (projector capability details and the like).
I've had in mind to do that (since the wiki page was suggested for
speaker coordination), but I've not gotten around to it ... at least yet.
Anyway, that would be a bit easier to refer to (and update) ... but
in the meantime, at least we've got a useful "chain" of URLs (the information
pretty much is out there ... but not on a single consolidated page or link).
