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.

Re: The Signature Museum

Brilliant new sigs, both of you!

By the way, Peter, I meant to tell you - I love how my current sig is actually pretty much the correct definition of efficiency. For one of the business management classes, we had to learn the definitions of efficiency and effectiveness, and I could never remember which was which, until you said that.

Re: The Signature Museum

Efficiency is more about doing stuff as quickly as possible, not about doing as much as you can. If you can efficiently do your tasks, you have more time for procrastination.
