Tad Williams' Message Board

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.'
-    Kurt Vonnegut, 1922-2007

Welcome to the message board for tadwilliams.com. All comments are welcome, whether kudos or brickbats. However, please bear in mind that Tad would like this to be a friendly, civil message board, at least in the relations between users. We reserve the right to remove postings, or even ban postings, from anyone who crosses the boundary of reasonable taste. Basically, you can argue vigorously with someone, but watch your language, okay? We have a lot of young readers as well as grown-ups, so please show them some respect.

But the main requirement here is: have fun.

Nope. You meant to "do something else" tomorrow. See?

Re: QM - The Room with a View

I just found the Mint conversation where I first learned what a MILF was.

Re: QM - The Room with a View

Though the informants back then had the good sense to put it in a PM, which maybe I ought to have.

Something occurs to me, reading these old Mints, about how I often miss Tad hanging out here, and we did have fun because everyone would pretty much wait around for Tad to visit and it was a constant Mint party.... but what happened quite a lot was I would be on all day, and then for the two hours I wasn't there, that's when he would come hang out. That was a little frustrating....

"That night, Marian disappeared and was never seen again, and everyone got a dark chill when they later thought of cyan's words. What did she know? What wasn't she telling? Or was it simply one of those mysterious coincidences in life that keep us awake at night, ever wondering... what if....?"

Re: QM - The Room with a View

"But then they realized that cyan doesn't know anything.  So what does it really mean, these seemingly random letters, MILF?  Is it some new underground movement?  You know, like the masons but...   not...?  Or is it....?"

[testimonial] "I never believed in this stuff, you know.  I mean, dust bunnies?  How much harm can they do?  *heavy sigh*  I..  I just didn't know.  *headshake*  *lostlook*  Then I saw this commercial about the HEERE Corporation.  And I thought... *hopefullook* is this possible...?  I was at my wits end, and had nowhere else to turn... those awful dustbunnies...!  So I called.  And I was SO AMAZED at the service they provided!  It was amazing!"

Re: QM - The Room with a View

"This is Mary Hart with ET. You've heard the infomercials. You've heard the rumors. But only ET has the exclusive first look at the movie ITS HEERE, based on the increased reports of missing persons and dust bunnies. Is there a connection? Stick around for exclusive footage exclusively here on ET, exclusively, and decide for yourself!"
