Just rubbish moving along for higher and higher price tag. So that's my reasoning here, I have no nice words for this kind of eBay thieves.

I have to say this is one of the most bizarre discussions I have had. If it works, leave it, if it doesn't, it is bloody easy to remove. To complain it breaks compatibility rules out nearly every Atari accelerator or CPU upgrade ever made. Including the CT2 and CT60. If Gary is happy running it, let it run. Steve, the previous owner, never mentioned any issues with Apex and if he had he would have told me, because that was the main reason he used it. The only thing I can remember that didn't work well was AHDI, ICD worked a treat so I didn't worry about it.
I have very little tolerance for people who tell others what they should and shouldn't do. Everyone is different, let them make their own minds up. The world isn't going to end either way.
Good luck with it.
