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.

Happy 16th Smarchiversary!

Belated, since it was last week, but still!

Woohoo, it's now old enough to drive!


If you should do what makes you happy, and no one can tell you what makes you happy, then that means no one can tell you what to do!

Not in Austria. Can only get a low power bike here... (45 km/h peak).
Sorry Smarch, keep aging!

But at least in Upper Austria, it can buy cigarettes and (some) alcohol now.

Re: Happy 16th Smarchiversary!

I will not have my website buying cigarettes and booze.  Unless they're for me.

Isn't that "contributing to the delinquency of a minor", Tad? Better wait two more years, when the website comes of age.

Re: Happy 16th Smarchiversary!

Or come to Austria, it can have sex, drugs and rock & roll here (just need to get there with public transport or hitch a ride).
