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: Firsfron's Phrontistery

My word of the week is Astorgia, which means "lack of interest in one's children". Fun fact: it's also a fairly common last name!

Re: Firsfron's Phrontistery

That sounds like a pretty terrible last name to have.

Re: Firsfron's Phrontistery

since I had to listen to so much about the German language and its excessive use of consonants, I want to share with you an English term I used today: stringlengths. 13 letters of which 11 consonants. 5 consonants in a row! Muahaha! Now I prooved you all wrong!

Re: Firsfron's Phrontistery

Good find!

But isn't that the exception rather than the rule?

Yes, and since post count is all that matters (or was that size? Who knows?), you guys should be totally afraid of my growing power. Muahaha!
