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.

Honestly, of all the fancy-schmancy math they required me to learn in college, I have used only one thing: proportions. What a waste of hundreds of hours of my time. Time that could have been better spent smarching. Well, actually, I smarched anyway, between assignments. But still!

I am fairly good at apllying basic math to problems, but I do sometimes wish I had more tools at my disposal. Without looking up any formulas, I couldn't even solve a quadratic equation. Integrals, etc. are beyond me, even with formulas. I do understand the concept, but I'd have to relearn everything.

Re: QM - Morgenes' Chambers

I always had good grades in math, but I've forgotten most of what I knew due to never using it.

In other news, my last cake is on the oven.

Re: QM - Morgenes' Chambers

I have about half an hour until I have to head out to meet my father. Will try to do more useful things until then. (So far, I've put away all the things I left somewhere they didn't belong, did the dishes and took out the garbage.)

Hm, page 24...
Remember what I said about the burning of this Mint, if you get to page 25 while I'm out!
