I'm really torn on this... I'd love to crack one open and get a Rick patch... but I know the chances of that are slim.
However with the dwindling availability of these I mean what can we really expect? I mean someone is going to find some of the remaining patches it's just a matter of time.
I guess I'm weighing my options of opening the case or doing what you mentioned... I'd love to be able to fill in some of the gaps with my auto set.
