In checking our fax machines early Wednesday morning, it was brought to our staff’s attention that a member of 8BitDad had been guilty of borrowing inspiration from local internet behemoth, Joystiq. Their smooth, clean style was somehow emulated on this website without our, the managing editors, prior knowledge.

This is a serious matter, as it was never the intention of 8BitDad to upset the community through inexplicable violation of cybercode. Rest assured, the issue has been dealt with, and the offending party was immediately and officially TERMINATED from 8BitDad staff. We here at 8BitDad would like to extend our apologies to any and all members of Joystiq that were enraged over the matter.

In all seriousness, Joystiq – consider yourselves an inspiration. We have a total of two employees, and when we conceived 8BitDad, we needed to get our site up fast. I’m working a full-time job, and site-owner Bryan had a baby on the way – but we felt we had a gift to share with the world. You know as much as anyone, there’s just not enough hours in the day.

In other news – look for a new design soon from 8BitDad! We’ve been working hard in our off-hours to get a new design rolling. We hope you’ll like it once it’s done. Everyone but you, Needles – consider us OUT for that little business proposal. Evidently, the Jitz is monitoring.
