Hola.

I've engaged in various Sim-centric pursuits in fits and starts going all the way back to the original Sim City. It's been kind of a blur, but I think it was Google led me here, and landed me smack in the midst of a Tale of Happy Valley. So... hey.

Hey hey!

Welcome!

Best games ever, Sims (and I too would include SimCity, at least SimCity 4 and Rush Hour).

Hola, Equinioxx! Bienvenidos al Hullabaloo!

That's pretty neat. I figured we were so far down in the rankings for Google that nobody would find us via any search engines. (The big business sites can afford to pay for placement on Google, y'see.) So it's really nifty to learn that someone actually hit a Google link. smile

I hope you enjoy the story! I can imagine how confusing it must have been to end up right in the middle of the Tales of Happy Valley! lol

Sim City was one of my favorites. I really like Sim Planet, too. Until I misplaced my game disk, I would spend hours terraforming Mars. (The fundamental scientific principles in Sim Planet are sound although the numbers used in the game are absurd. This seems to be the trend in sensationalistic popular science these days, so we can credit Maxis for being at the forefront of scientific silliness.)

Interesting you found us via "Happy Valley" What a strange wild ride that must have been.

If you read the Happy Valley thread and still want to hang out with us? That makes YOU a keeper!

Welcome!

I think the thing that struck me most about Happy Valley was that I found the storytelling to have a rather strong Heinleinian flavor. And really, who can resist Heinleinian flavor? Certainly not I!

Thanks for the warm welcomes!

Greg will be happy to hear that, he loves Robert Heinlein's books. Grin

That's a very astute observation. A lot of the fan mail I got in response to my novellas (published in Analog) noted that there seemed to be a very strong Heinlein influence on my writing.

I did at least (shortly after I found the Tales myself).
