      D1P 2017 Charity Campaign for The Life You Can Save: $1,690 (as of September 8, 2017)   12/12/2016

      I've decided to extend our charity campaign for The Life You Can Save organizations for the entirety of 2017 so feel free to contribute at any time!  Periodically through the year, I'll have game giveaways for those who have donated to the campaign as a "thank you" for supporting this worthy endeavor!

      Welcome former GAFers!   10/21/2017

      I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome any and all "refugees" from NeoGAF who may have discovered our humble little site as a result of the ongoing "situation" over at NeoGAF.   Feel free to check us out and if you like, join our small but interesting community!

      So you're new to DayOnePatch - please read this!   10/21/2017

      First of all, a warm, hearty WELCOME to DayOnePatch - we're REALLY pleased to have you here!   I mean that most sincerely!   Our site was founded in late 2010 when a bunch of people from the IGN forums got sick and tired of IGN being IGN and decided to create a brand new community under the name BadCartridge.  We operated under that name for a few years until there was a change in ownership which resulted in a change to the current name that we have now.  Since then, we've had a couple of owners before I assumed ownership of the site in mid-2016 and here we are today.   I guess I'd better say a word or two about our rules.  Look, here's the deal:  you are probably a sentient human being with a modicum of social skills so you probably have an idea of what is acceptable to say to another sentient human being with a modicum of social skills.  If what you are about to post gives you some pause as to whether you would say in in real life, then you probably shouldn't post it.  In other words, DON'T. BE. AN. ASSHOLE.  It's not that hard!  While we have a damned fine mod team, all disciplinary actions are ultimately my decision as the Supreme High Chancellor (catchy title, eh?  I came up with it myself!) of DayOnePatch.   Now that the unpleasant stuff is over, let's talk about the great things we have.  Well, we have a very semi-regular podcast!   We LOVE having members of our community as guests on the podcast, so if you don't mind having your voice transmitted to DOZENS of people, then let us know if you'd like to be a guest.   We have a Discord server for you to chat in -real-time of if you want to use the voice-chat capabilities for games or just shoot the breeze.  We have two requests: (a) PM me for an invite to the server. (b) If your Discord name is different than your D1P name, then you MUST tell me your Discord name before you receive an invite.   We have a Steam Community Group! http://steamcommunity.com/groups/day1patch# Yes, I know the title still says "Bad Cartridge" and that's because Valve doesn't allow name changes to Steam groups because Valve is stupid.   But the thing that I'm most proud of is the Announcement that you see at the top of the page.  http://www.dayonepatch.com/index.php?/announcement/40-d1p-2017-charity-campaign-for-the-life-you-can-save-1690-as-of-september-8-2017/ For this year, this community has donated nearly $1,700 to organizations that are trying to improve the lives of people in the developing world.  It is a true testament to the character of the individuals of this community that they've given to this project (as well as many, many others) freely and without expectation of anything in return.  Because of this, I'm honored and humbled to be a part of this community.   In closing, we're really glad you're here (feel free to bring other friends too!) and let's have a helluva lot of fun!

  1. The short version: It creates a very large tax liability for your retirement days. I also generally dislike linking important things like retirement savings and health insurance coverage to the near random whims of employers.

    What a night. I’m drained.

    In the building, crowd is waaay in it. Finish the game, Stros!
  5. There is a significant number of people who don't know what Puerto Ricans are Americans. Many probably don't know that they aren't Mexicans. It's pretty sad.
  6. This is a bad plan, but I do wish to see 401ks go away.

    One more game!

    That swing by Frazier was the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen. Astros stopped swinging at balls and got the walks, Altuve with a big hit to go up 3-0.
  10. Your own eyes only saw one version of her quote, but she gave three (or more). As I said previously, it’s because she isn’t actually quoting the president, and she has in fact said that what she is telling people is how they interpreted what he said. In one interview she explicitly said the words “something to the effect of...”. That’s not a quote when you say it was “something to the effect of.” Which is fine, people take things ways that weren’t intended all the time. And the President shows his immaturity and lack of anything resembling class in this situation when instead of hearing that the way he spoke to the young woman hurt her and doing the correct thing of reaching back out and apologizing for the misstep, he latched on to the fact that the Congresswoman didn’t accurately quote him and instead interpreted his words in a way he felt unfairly maligned him.
  11. Alleged "Niger ambush" details emerge

    These people. The daughter in law was clearly not referring to news reports in reference to the transcript question because she was explicitly pointing out what the news reports were leaving out. No doubt. Definitely want to avoid bringing errant stuff into this. It’s pretty important we get the truth.
  12. I was mentioning to some other friends that despite growing up in Texas, I’m not a gun guy at all. Like, my wife and I don’t let our kids go have play dates at other homes unless we’ve verified that the parents actually practice real gun safety if they own guns. But some of these gun people...they get the crazy eyes about their guns. It’s crazy.
  13. You also said she said the same thing both times and she matter of factly did not. She’s given at least three different renditions of the quote, I think it’s actually four but I can’t remember where it was she said the other riff.
