I really hope, nothing that I posted here could be misinterpreted that

That was just a misunderstanding that I felt like clearing up. Not certain where it started, and not at all worried or upset by it. Just felt I'd get the accurate information out there.

Those effects might be hard to recognize. It depends on what the random
number generator is used for.

That's what I figured. And as long as they're most unrecognizable they shouldn't bother people when it comes to playing the game. That's why I didn't concern myself with it too much when designing the Cuttle Cart.

The "killer ways" I was "proudly harping about", where not how to
disable CC (because we both know that's trivial), but to prevent people
from removing this disabling code or the hack protection.

And now, I'm moving on... :-)

Sounds good to me. And I do appreciate your conversion of PAL games to NTSC. It was an interesting aspect of the Cuttle Cart's introduction that suddenly the fact that ROMs where PAL or NTSC mattered. (And my TV is terrible at handling a PAL signal.)
