Tanga needs a blog, darn it

Tanga needs a blog, darn it

So here it is.

I’m still on a baby high this week, my son Dashell (Dash) Clay Van Dyk was born last Friday (Pi Day!) and he is awesome. He even already has his own gmail and facebook account, got to start them off right, you know.

One of the things I’m looking of doing next is writing a facebook application for Tanga. There is one already written by the good man Scott Alden from BGG, but it

Puzzle Score / Ranking Bug Fixed

Puzzle Score / Ranking Bug Fixed

As some of you may have noticed, it may have seemed like you are not getting the right amounts of points when you solve. I mean, 63rd to solve and you only get 10 points? What the hell TangaJoe?!

I found a bug (for nerds, in the Rails acts_as_list plugin) that doesn’t do ranking correctly. So, even if Tanga reported you as being 63rd to solve, if enough ties happened, you might have been

Shipping Status

Shipping Status

I must apologize! Apparently I pushed the big red button with the “do not push” sign over it. Which of course caused our FedEx shipping software to completely come apart at the seams – so I have not been able to print shipping labels for the last two days. Obviously this will cause some shipping delays, and I am so sorry about that!
We are back up and running now, so things will start mo

Merry Christmas Tarrant! From Your Friends at Tanga!

We received a message from Tarrant about how he was in the process of moving and his Christmas Tree, along with all of his ornaments, lights, tinsel, was stolen! So he used his Tanga Snowglobe as his tree and put a choo-choo train around it. I asked him to send me a picture and if we could post a note so that all the Tanganites could wish him a Merry Christmas and he said "s
