Thank you to everyone who participated in the contest. It’s amazing how creative our users are. The ultimate winner was tempus42 who made me laugh with his original and creative Haiku. He will be getting $20 in Tanga Cash!
Could be some swimwear
Or a Tanzanian port
I prefer dot com
Here are some honorable mentions:
Puzzles and good deals
What more could anyone want
In just a word – more
came for the cheap swag
then discovered all the games
now I’m addicted
We love Tanga deals
And salt with the puzzles where…
A goat is butter!
Puzzles to Ponder
Daily Deals to Tempt Me
No More Time or Cash
peaches, oranges, bananas
what happened to the fruit?
Young man buys a game
Old man solves a Cryptopix
coming winter storm
threatens to trap me at home.

Some Tanga members received multiple copies of the holiday email we sent out last night. It was caused by an unfortunate combination of a full hard drive, a misconfigured /etc/fstab file, and heavy load on one of our servers.
We are reworking our software to prevent reoccurrence of that bug.

Once again, I’ll be out-of-town and internetless for the holidays. Off to see many, many relatives.

We are only $200 away from reaching our goal of $1000 of donations from our Tanga users to Toys for Tots. Tanga will be matching that donation of $1000 so tomorrow, we will be writing a check for $2000. But we just need a few more of you to donate so we can get that last $200!
Can you help?

We have been mulling around the idea of creating an iPhone app on Tanga and we wanted your opinion about what you would want to see for the functionality of the app. In a perfect Tanga iPhone app world, what would you want?

We noticed on Thanksgiving day that Tanga was slowing down under load.
After a lot of database and application tweaks, we’re happy to have seen the following improvements (lower is better). Also, load on the database servers is about a fifth of what it used to be.
Posted on Nov 29, 2009
These will only be available for 48 hours, so make sure to snag them before time runs out or they sell out. There are still items available from our Black Friday deals and new ones for Cyber Monday are now up and on sale!
Feel free to share Tanga.com with your friends and family…

Our database server had major hardware problems (i.e. unresponsive and unbootable).
We have tanga’s database running on a new server and all should be well!

Maybe because I’m getting older, maybe a little wiser, but this year I’ve been thinking a lot about what I’m thankful for and wanted to share it… If you so feel inclined, please post what you are thankful for in this thread!
“Gratitude is the sign of noble souls. -Aesop”
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…. It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. – Melodie Beattie”
I’m thankful for an incredible family, a supportive, amazing, beautiful wife, my three kids who always constantly amaze me with how smart and gorgeous they are (even though they make me angry when they beat me at board games!), my faith, my friends who have stuck with me for years, my health, all them guys/gals that work on Tanga everyday and all of my friends/Tanganites on Tanga!
