Vertex commissioned one guy to do the hardware, another to write the
sector read/write, and I slapped together a program.
Eventually, of course, Apple made them rename it to just "Turnover".
Depending on the exact version, it handles Apple-OS, Apple Pascal
(UCSD), ProDos, and Apple CP/M
A relatively low percentage of the boards work right, and it is VERY
touchy about which drives it will work with. I recommend setting aside an
early Tandom TM100-2 to use with it, or do a serial port transfer instead.
