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.

Aargh, just realised this is the most likely weekend my in-laws are celebrating their birthdays!

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

Bleh, I'm soo bummed I never checked the date before (not knowing if I would be able to come in any case). And this particular weekend Ivo would have had a full weekend event in the UK which I talked him out of, since his mom's birthday is on that Sunday, and birthdays are very important to her. So even if I can make it, I'll only be there for one night (arriving in the afternoon and leaving early the next morning). And I'm not sure I think that's worth sitting in a train for six hours twice. *grumbles*

I'm probably just too easily worn out these days.

What about coming to Stuttgart a few days later? Some of us will/may be there, too?

Remember my carpool offer :)
I'm planning to go on Friday morning after rush hour, it's about a 4,5 hour drive. Returning on Saturday a little after noon (home at dinner time).

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

Ooh, I had indeed forgotten, thanks MarcoL! It still depends on what my in-laws are doing for their birthdays, though.

No need for advance payment. But please let me know if you cannot make it after all. Even on short notice.

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

When/how long will you guys be in Kassel? Just for the reading, or a day or two before or after? And has anybody picked accommodation yet? Recommendations?

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

Those are excellent questions, I'd love the answers as well. That's all the information I've found so far:

Olaf wrote:

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).
