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: Kassel Moot with Tad reading 17/10/13

I am planning to attend this moot, but haven't hammered out the details yet.

Re: Kassel Moot with Tad reading 17/10/13

I'll aim for Kassel as well, then. Probably better for me date-wise, too, since it's not as close to All Saints' Day.

Re: Kassel Moot with Tad reading 17/10/13

I will be aiming for this as well... even though I'm supposed to dog-sit... but friend with dog is planning to get another dog, without having asked me whether I'd be okay to sit two dogs... besides she always always goes for the rescue dogs and I think it is absolutely horrid to get a rescue dog and then leave on holiday a couple of weeks later.... and leave a friend with the mess of an "abandoned" dog...

So am working with her on splitting the load.

I'm in as well, never attended a 'moot' before but it sounds like fun if you don't mind a newbie :)

Most of us have been newbies. And you won't be the only one.

Most? Now I'm really curious who were the not-newbies. :)

Re: Kassel Moot with Tad reading 17/10/13

I suppose there's a difference between being an newbie in the first few days or weeks of a newly established forum, or being a newbie in a forum that has existed for years.

I guess all the list and treehouse people were never truly newbies on Smarch.

Re: Kassel Moot with Tad reading 17/10/13

Hi, I just booked a room at the Intercity Hotel Kassel. This hotel is directly next to the Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe train station, where all the long distance trains come through. It is also in easy walking distance to Ylvshouse (I´d say 10-15 minutes).

I'd say it's more 3-5 minutes.

Re: Kassel Moot with Tad reading 17/10/13

My savings have been going well so far this year, so the chances of me showing up are increasing. It's still dependent on how much money I spend in Finland, but not as much as before.

Re: Kassel Moot with Tad reading 17/10/13

I booked a room at Hotel Chassalla, which seems to be close to university

I'm excited! My first moot!

That is close to everything as well. Within walking distance.

So looking forward to meet you, Kia!

It is just one doll, but this one is quite big (around 70cm) and heavy. I guess I could bring him along since I plan coming  by car anyway but I'm a bit concerned of caring him around the whole day since he could break. If you guys would like to see him in 'person', I still would bring him though  and we figure something out to show him around....

Re: Kassel Moot with Tad reading 17/10/13

You could bring him right to the bookstore when you arrive, they'll put him in the backroom, he'll sit with Tad on stage and you can come and get him back on Saturday morning. How does that sound?

Re: Kassel Moot with Tad reading 17/10/13

ylvs, this is a great idea!
This way I don't have to carry him around and he still can be shown around :-)

Re: Kassel Moot with Tad reading 17/10/13

Exactly! Glad, you like the idea. Remind me again a week or so before the event so I  don't forget to give the bookstore a head's up.
