About Me

Just a few things about me:


I have been stuck with the name Chase A Byrd since 2 December 1990, which I guess it’s good since it is a memorable name.  I have been running Linux since early 2008.  I have tried many different distros like, Fedora, Debian, openSUSE, Ubuntu, Mandriva, Gentoo, etc… but, I feel more at home with Ubuntu.  For a desktop I use a HP Compaq dx2300 Microtower with 1.6 Ghz Celeron, 1 Gig of RAM.  Not very impressive, I know.  But for laptops I do own a Panasonic Toughbook CF-28 with 1 Ghz PIII, 512 MB PC133 RAM and a 30 GiB HDD(*recently sold), a Toughbook CF-29 with 1.3 Ghz Centrino, 768 MB DDR RAM and 40 GiB HDD.  I do have have a Powerbook G4(not exactly sure on it, doesn’t work at the moment).  I am also an emissions inspector and coin dealer; a small one though, but with high hopes for the future.  My main collecting habits are with world coins (any country but the U.S.).  I am on Coin Talk, del.icio.us, Twitter, last.fm, Facebook, and many more websites.  Just look for my username, byrd740.


The Scarlet ‘A’ is part of the Out Campaign. I think it is a great idea, honestly. There are many, many ‘closet’ atheists out there, and this is a way to almost encourage a small way for them to show their beliefs. It is just a small lapel pin. One thing I like about it is it isn’t too ‘out there’, as in it is discreet. I purchased one and started wearing it at my flea market shop. I was kind of curious about what people would think of it. I got a few looks about it but, so far nothing bad. People of course ask “What does the ‘A’ mean?”, I tell them “Atheist”. I had a few people have more curiosity about it and one even came out and told me he was an atheist also. Where I am, it is hard to find anyone that will admit to being an atheist, being I live in the “bible belt”

To purchase a lapel pin or more, you can go to the richarddawkins.net store and find it in the accessories section.
