    Back to School Puzzlethon this weekend! Starts Friday at 7pm Pacific

    In an age where bringing an Apple to your teacher might mean giving her an iPhone, Tanga’s going “old school” this weekend with a good old-fashioned Puzzlethon!

    Yup, it’s …

    THE RULES

    1. Thirteen special One Word Wonders will go live on Friday, September 9th at 7 pm PT (when all of the products and puzzles rotate through.)

    2. Complete ALL of the puzzle curriculum before 7 pm PT on Sunday the 11th. You will only be eligible for the drawing if you have solved all thirteen of the Back to School puzzles.

    3. If you have successfully completed all of the puzzles in the allotted time frame then you are automatically entered into a drawing (see below). In addition to an entrance into our drawing, all users that complete the puzzlethon will receive a very rare and sought after Tanga Badge for their account page. (insert oohs and aahs)

    The badge…

    THE PRIZES

    Successfully complete all 13 puzzles in the allotted time frame and you’re automatically entered to win. On September 12th we will draw 6 random usernames from the pool of users and announce the winners. (note: we reserve the right to maybe not get to this until the 13th).

    The Prizes:

    - 1 Winner of a $50 Target Gift Card
    - 5 Winners of $10 Tanga Cash

    Meet TangaJordan!

    You’ve met TangaBrad and TangaJoe’s Cat POSIX . Now meet our new designer, TangaJordan!

    1. How did you get this job?
    This is actually my second time working at Tanga. I originally did a brief stint at Tanga for about 9 months back in 2007. I got the job after being recommended by a friend to TangaJoe. Since then, I spent a few years at other startups and now I’m back for more.

    2. What is it that you do for Tanga?
    I’m here to help Tanga (and other sites within the Tanga family of sites) be even more awesome and easier to use. You’ve already seen my designs and improvements within the deals section of Tanga. Look forward to many more improvements across the site. And yes, I’ve been reading up on many of your concerns regarding Daily Fun issues. I hope to address many of those in the future!

    3. Which is your favorite shade of blue?
    Tanga Blue (#24B2E0)

    4. Dog or cat?
    Dog.

    5. Why is it that computer nerds love cats so much?
    Probably because of something along these lines.

    6. Have you ever considered going vegetarian?
    Mmmm…bacon. Sorry, what was the question?

    7. When you were small, what did you wish to be when you grew up?
    Taller.

    8. Do you have any pets and if so, what are their names and why?
    Yep, I have a wiener dog named Lily. I think she was the runt of the family. POSIX is bigger than her.

    9. Windows or Apple?
    Apple

    10. How fast can you type?
    One time during typing class in High School my teacher thought I was smashing the keyboard in anger when I was actually just flying through the speed test with beautiful accuracy. That was that high point of my typing career. I’ve since settled into mediocrity.

    11. How many puzzles have you completed on Tanga?
    Just a couple handfuls. They are usually too difficult for me. The only Daily Fun I’m good at is BottomFeeder.

    12. How many puzzles have you created on Tanga?
    Many test puzzles! Do those count?

    13. What is your favorite time of day?
    Either really early in the morning or really late at night.

    14. What is it like working under TangaJoe?
    It’s like a teenage dream that never ends.

    15. Where do you currently live?
    Beautiful Seattle, WA.

    16. Regular or double stuffed Oreos?
    Both, at the same time.

    17. How many fingers am I holding up?
    I’d have to be a psychic to know that…3.

    18. If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live and why?
    Still trying to figure this out.

    19. Complete this sentence: “I always…”
    …eat chunky peanut butter.

    20. Favorite Disney Movie?
    Mighty Ducks 2

    Tanga is Hiring! Earn a $2500 Referral Bonus

    Tanga.com is looking for someone to help expand our e-commerce functionality. This work would focus on the database and backend Ruby service. This is a contract position (for now).

    Referral Bonus

    Want to earn an easy $2500 cash? Refer someone to Tanga for this job! That’s what we’ll pay you after the new hire has worked with us for 90 days.

    Job Description

    Tanga runs on Rails and Postgresql.

    Contact joe@tanga.com if you:

    - Know Ruby well. Metaclasses do not scare you. You wield the power of TDD bravely. You can fix bugs in ActiveRecord.

    - Know Postgresql well. You know how to properly use savepoints inside ActiveRecord. You know when to use composite keys. You know how to avoid deadlocks in Postgresql. You know why validate_uniqueness_of is useless/broken inside Rails.

    - You have a good sense of database design, particularly with how to simply and cleanly integrate it with the standard Rails idioms, but without losing the power of the modern DMBS.

    - You are not afraid to have your code critiqued, you are not afraid to critique other code, and you are open to new ideas.

    - You are pragmatic. We’re looking to ship, not build ivory towers. We’re looking to have simple, easily-testable and modifibable code and database architecture. Something that’s easier to test, for us, is better than something that’s Well Designed and Fast.

    - You understand the *nix environment (processes, heap/stack, system calls, etc).

    - You understand the web (http headers, cookies, dns, etc).

    Why Did Tanga Give Away Two Disney Dream Prizes?

    We have not one but TWO winners this month!

    Por que? Well that’s because when Nancy M. was drawn as the winner she entered through a referral link that her friend Kathleen B. had posted. So Nancy not only won herself a $250 Disney Gift Card but Kathleen also won her own $250 Disney Gift Card as well!

    Wow! Two Winners??

    Yes there are two winners this month. While that may be a little much for some to chew we want to reiterate the fact that you, too can win. When you enter to win the $250 Spa gift card just make sure and send the referral link to everyone you know and their mothers. So when John Smith’s mother is drawn to win the spa gift card – you will win one too!

    What the winners had to say:

    We wrote to Kathleen to tell her the great news and she replied with the following note:
    "I am so excited to hear that my internet friend, Nancy Mottu, won Tanga’s Disney Dream Giveaway. And super excited to hear that I won by referring her! I will definitely continue to refer friends to Tanga!! My “Happy Tanga Dance” starts with a conga line through the neighborhood, followed by the jitterbug all the way to the gates of the Magic Kingdom where I plan to use my $250 giftcard for a day of FUN with my family and Mickey Mouse!!!!"

    Thanks again & can’t wait to receive my prize,
    Kathleen

    Following tradition, we also wrote to Nancy-Pants (we are close enough now to make nicknames) and she replied with this:
    " I am doing the happy Tanga dance as I sit at my desk at work by tapping my feet, nodding my head and doing the best I can while still doing my best to answer phones. I will use my giftcard on my grandkids (maybe) unless “Disney Fever” overtakes me as it usually does. We go to Disneyland or Disneyworld about once a year. I am on team Disneyland, even though I adore Disneyworld too! Disneyland has a more intimate feel and much easier to get around. My favorite ride (at either park) is It’s a Small World! I am not a crazy Disney collector yet – buit I have a super soft spot for Disney Christmas ornaments! And I love Tanga and wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart for this giftcard! "

    Your new best friend,
    Nancy

    1+1=You both win the prize! (it’s legit math – I called a professional)

    Don’t you want to be the next Kathleen and Nancy? Share that link! Facebook, Twitter, or even just plain ol’ email works to get your link to everyone you know!

    Enter this month’s $250 spa gift card giveaway with Kathleen’s tactics and you could be one of this month’s winners!

    Crack open the celebratory champagne and sound the triumphant bugles because Tanga has reached 500,000 users!

    What does that mean to you and why should you possibly care? Aside from the obvious benefits of having 500,000 friends, if you were signed up in all the right places you were entered to win a whopping $500 Tanga Cash.

    We know what you are thinking.. What could someone possibly do with $500 Tanga Cash with such great deals that barely cost you anything to begin with? Well rest assured that we will be around long enough for that $500 to be spent.

    Now to the good stuff: Who won?

    Clap your hands and jump with giddy excitement for our winner: Jonathan C. (otherwise known as merely911). Everyone here at the Tanga HQ is very excited not only to reach this great milestone but to also give this $500 Tanga Cash prize.

    We have a special surprise for our 500,000th Tanga User Mikewhit1985 who is the winner of a giant sock monkey! Not only is the sock monkey larger than an average child (see “Highly Accurate Comparison” to the right), but it will forever stand as a constant reminder joining the Tanga family at just the right time! Go ahead, pat yourself on the back.

    Thanks to all of our users!

    Even though you aren’t bringing home the $500 bucks or a ridiculously large sock monkey, remember that we appreciate all 500,000+ users that have brought us this far. Now… time to start planning what we’ll do when we hit a million users!
