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.

15th MINTYVERSARY ON THURSDAY 7/7 - PAAAARRRRRTEYYYYYYYY!

As we all stupidly missed Smarch's 15th anniversary this months, Firs came up with the brilliant plan to celebrate te 15th anniversary of our beloved Mint instead.

Rules are the usual. Whoever posts first on that date (prolly some of us Eurosmarchers as Down Under has been quiet for months now) opens the first party Mint. I mean PARTEY MINT!

Who's in?


I think Smarch might have a higher-than-average percentage of introverts.  It's probably what makes us so awesome. Magpie

Dearies, has anyone alerted the faceborg group to this?
Peter? Kenan?
My tweet got a like from Deb but I am not sure this counts as a an acceptance.

I think we need more marleting for the party ...

Anyone seen Aan and Xavie recently? Neither is on FB, AFAIK, so I'm not sure if they'd see this in any form.

*waves at elfenthanz*

That is a tricky question. The Last King of Osten Ard progress report comes to mind:

Otherwise there's probably too much, distributed throughout too many topics.

My appearance at the party may be even briefer. This week is packed with work and on Friday, I have to leave work early since I am going to Berlin for the weekend visiting a friend.

Have a good trip, Olaf! Even a brief Mint visit is better than nothing! :)
