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: QM - Made of Plastic (it's fantastic)

Oh, I didn't know that!

Enjoy the wet run! (IMO, nothing's worse than running, except maybe running in bad weather. But to each her own!)

Now I have to see if I can break through the couch gravity and do some stuff before I have to go to work again tomorrow.

Re: QM - Made of Plastic (it's fantastic)

When I went out rain had stopped again already and I had a decent 7,5k run. After run and shower I went to my parents for breakfast (like every Sunday) and it started raining again just when I left the house. Same thing yesterday when I was visiting a friend and walked over to her. So I ask myself: have I accidentally turned into a rain godess?

Re: QM - Made of Plastic (it's fantastic)

Haha. I was more thinking about that guy in I think it was The Long and Dark Teatime of th Soul where that guy has a raining cloud following him around everywhere and who was'nt aware he was the rain god and was all grumpy about the sodding weather.

Anybody knows whom I am talking about?

Re: QM - Made of Plastic (it's fantastic)

yup, I remember that book and the poor rain god - the clouds were loving him so they followed him everywhere. No wonder he was grumpy :-)

Gmaem Mint.

It is a beautiful crisp morning outside so I get myself into running gear and head out for a short one.

This will be the final test for the rain godess theory. Hope I fail.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA!

After a sunny but windy weekend we now have a full day of heavy rains ahead. I just hope we get to see temperature in the double digits any time soon *sigh* long, cold spring here.

Re: QM - Made of Plastic (it's fantastic)

Had to move desk twice this morning. Oh well, at least the second move meant I'm sitting with my back to the wall again, and can sneak in some smarch every now and then. Not much to do, but wait for bugs.

Hmpf, just discovered that my deployment this morning didn't actually deploy anything.
