A class act

I would like to publically thank Chris Byrne of http://anarchangel.blogspot.com/ and the people at www.theguncounter.com

Recently I posted about how my writing laptop had gone down because of a bad power supply. Chris offered to send me an old beater laptop so I could keep writing.  Someone else had a power supply locally, so I was taken care of, but in passing I mentioned to Chris that if he still didn’t want that old laptop, I would pass it on to my Dead Six writing partner, Nightcrawler, who was going on active duty.

Well, Chris is a man of his word, only he figured that if this was going to a soldier, then he deserved more than an old beater.  So he posted to the Guncounter to see if any of the guys there would be willing to kick in for upgrades. He did this in secret, hoping to surprise both me and Mike. I found out because I have this habit of googling my name once in awhile.

The men of the theguncounter were very generous. Instead of giving Mike a beater laptop to take, he was given a new laptop that had been totally worked over by technical guru Chris, and with a bunch of extras, like a nice case, power supplies, etc.

That is a remarkable act of genorosity.

And this was before I found out about Chris and his wife’s own financial issues. This is a couple who is selling their entire gun collection to pay legal fees over a custody battle.  Recently I posted about how they were selling cookbooks to try and pay those legal fees. I would strongly encourage my readers to go buy a cookbook. Good folks like this deserve our support.
