Please feel free to drop us a line at any time about anything! If you're a patch trader, we're sorry but we will not be able to provide you with a patch. Since we established this web site in 1999, we have averaged one request a day for a patch to trade. In order to be fair to everyone, we will not respond to requests for patches. Thanks!
