    Prizes for Mon-Wed - announced!

    Here are the list of prizes for the next three days. As you’ve noticed, our front page mentions nothing about what types of prizes we planned to give away during our first 30 days of pre-launch madness. So now, you can win some cool tech!

    Monday – Ipod Nano 2GB Silver
    Tuesday – PS2 Slim (Playstation 2)
    Wednesday – Ipod Shuffle (New redesigned version)

    Good luck and may the force be with you.

    Edit – ok, so we DID mention the board games. When I read it through I didn’t see it on the front page! This was our evil plan all along ;-) And if you win and don’t like the product, sell it on Ebay and buy a game of your choice!

    TangaJoe is trapped in a dark hotel room with the other unshowered Tangadenizens slaving away at Tanga.com for three days straight. And we’ve ran out of Diet Coke. UNACCEPTABLE.

    In other news, TangaJoe’s wife is at home alone and has no pizza (left her cell phone at work), water (the house’s water pump broke), dishwasher (clogged), or car (keys lost). As Earl would say, “Do good things and good things will happen. Do bad things and bad things will happen.” I figure that’s what she gets for childishly demanding pizza the other night.

    And make things better

    Congrats to Fritz Schwartz! The winner of puzzle #13

    When I was a kid, my parents made me eat grits for breakfast. When I would throw fits, they’d grab their baseball bats and mits and we’d go outside and let off some steam. Then we’d come back and eat Ritz and more grits. Then I’d have to go to Boy Scouts and I got the Firem’n Chit. And my dog loved to eat Kibbles and Bits. Then I grew up and my girlfriend in high school was quite the ditz. Our web site is getting tons of hits and we now say CONGRATS TO Mr. FRITZ! He will be receiving a free copy of Ra(tz) from Uberplay!

    Parents Just Don't Understand

    So, I wanted to tell my mom about this cool new site that I help make. Here’s the text of my instant message conversation with her:

    (10:21:11) Tanga Joe: you like tanga.com?
    (10:21:34) Mom: I can’t do the first puzzle, does it have to do with leap year?
    (10:21:42) Mom: What is Tanga anyway?
    (10:21:49) Mom: Just for fun, or?
    (10:21:50) Tanga Joe: a website
    (10:21:55) Tanga Joe: you’ll see in a month
    (10:21:58) Mom: There isn’t enough info
    (10:22:12) Mom: is it a commercial website?
    (10:22:20) Tanga Joe: that’s because it’s “One big huge fetchen’ mystery”
    (10:22:20) Mom: Is it for someone, or yours only?
    (10:22:23) Tanga Joe: that’s the title of the website
    (10:22:44) Tanga Joe: yes, it will be a commercial website
    (10:22:53) Mom: well for pity’s sake, I don’t understand at all
    (10:22:55) Mom: whose?
    (10:23:00) Tanga Joe: Tanga
    (10:23:06) Tanga Joe: Tanga, LLC
    (10:23:09) Mom: ?
    (10:23:15) Tanga Joe: that’s the name of the company
    (10:23:17) Tanga Joe: it’s a new company
    (10:23:34) Mom: well, you worked for them before, right?
    (10:23:43) Mom: the game outfit
    (10:23:52) Tanga Joe: one of the guys from that is involved with this.
    (10:23:55) Mom: the name is familiar
    (10:24:03) Mom: ok
    (10:24:12) Mom: how is Jessa?
    (10:24:15) Tanga Joe: have fun with the puzzles.
    (10:24:16) Tanga Joe: Good.
    (10:24:50) Mom: I don’t know how to do them
    (10:24:59) Mom: there aren’t enough clues
    (10:25:02) Tanga Joe: what’s another word for impoverished?
    (10:25:04) Mom: give me a hint
    (10:25:09) Mom: poor
    (10:25:18) Tanga Joe: Ask Dad who Bond’s gadget man was
    (10:25:23) Mom: indigent
    (10:25:35) Mom: he is walking in the rain
    (10:25:48) Tanga Joe: do you know who Bond’s gadget man was?
    (10:25:50) Mom: you mean who made his gadgets
    (10:26:01) Mom: no
    (10:26:07) Mom: of course not
    (10:26:23) Mom: that is why I can’t do the puzzle, it is probably a guy thing
    (10:26:27) Tanga Joe: http://www.klast.net/bond/q.html
    (10:26:40) Mom: ok, I will check it out
    (10:26:45) Mom: is it cold in seattle?
    (10:26:48) Tanga Joe: yes
    (10:26:51) Tanga Joe: look at the website now
    (10:27:04) Mom: we have had snow in the mountains, 46 right now outside
    (10:27:08) Mom: ok
    (10:27:54) Mom: it takes a while to load
    (10:28:20) Mom: my internet is slow today
    (10:28:50) Mom: I still don’t have it up
    (10:29:14) Tanga Joe: dad’s not back yet?
    (10:29:20) Mom: no
    (10:29:31) Tanga Joe: ask him when he gets back
    (10:29:33) Mom: it may not load at all
    (10:29:35) Mom: ok
    (10:29:50) Mom: he will be gone for an hour or so
    (10:29:50) Tanga Joe: and then think what “pinecone” – “cone” is
    (10:30:04) Tanga Joe: pinecone minus pine
    (10:30:11) Mom: good grief, all this from 29 x es?
    (10:30:11) Tanga Joe: oops
    (10:30:16) Tanga Joe: pinecone minus cone
    (10:30:31) Tanga Joe: what?
    (10:30:56) Mom: well, the puzzle has 29 xes doesn’t it?
    (10:30:59) Tanga Joe: no
    (10:31:03) Tanga Joe: aren’t there question marks?
    (10:31:16) Mom: Yes, 2 at the top
    (10:31:19) Tanga Joe: click on the first one
    (10:31:29) Mom: oh, you have to click on it?
    (10:31:32) Tanga Joe: the front page isn’t a puzzle
    (10:31:57) Mom: oh for pity’s sake, well, there were no instructions at all
    (10:32:14) Mom: I will work with it again, you click on both the question marks?
    (10:32:24) Mom: and what are the xes for then?
    (10:32:42) Tanga Joe: they will turn into question marks, one new puzzle each day
    (10:32:50) Tanga Joe: did you click on the first one yet?
    (10:33:10) Mom: no, I don’t even have the website up yet
    (10:38:39) Tanga Joe: did you click it yet?
    (10:39:29) Mom: I need more info
    (10:39:40) Mom: yes, I have the puzzle up
