Howdy all. I could not get on Tanga yesterday, and as a result, I missed the puzzle. I fixed the problem thanks to the help of others. I discovered that while there was an error mesage, it may have had something to do with "Cookies." After completing a puzzle every day, I discovered that I will not get credit for yesterday's puzle even though I did it upon regaining access. Is this simply a "too bad" situation or if folks are led to believe the site is temporarily down, can points still be awarded? My wife and I are having a blast with Tanga overall. Keep up the good work and thanks for the puzzles!

Don't know who here can answer that question. Why don't you send a note to service@tanga.com and ask them directly.

I couldn't get on. Tried a few times before seeing this. Cleared my cookies and it worked. That's the third thime I've had to clear my cookies to use thier site. I hate having to relog on to all my other accounts. Sent them a note. I don't really want to have to keep clearing cookies.

That's Tim Powers' fictional Samuel Coleridge "quoting" John Milton in _The Anubis Gates_.

If you're using Firefox, you can just clear a single cookie - no need to flush the whole jar!

If you're using IE, I don't know how to delete a single cookie from within the browser. But you can do it manually outside the browser as follows: Go to your "Documents and Settings" folder (such as C:\Documents and Settings\Yourname), and then to your Cookies folder. In that folder, look for a file named something like yourname@tanga[2] and just delete that file.

Thanks! is it just thier cookie that causes the problem? The one time they replied to me; they said clear all cookies.

But, really the point kinda is, this is the only site I have this problem with. I'm not a programmer, but I'd think they would want to fix it if there are enough people having this problem that at one point they posted about it in the blog and that it's fairly well known about around here. Guess I don't understand that stuff.

So, for those of us who still have the error message (I'm sure not going to clear all my cookies to get a chance to purchase a refurbished hard drive), what was the item for sale last night and tonight?

Tonight's Item: Logitech Wireless Laser Mouse MX600

And you don't need to clear all the cookies, just the Tanga one(s).

Edit - forgot to mention, last night's item: 650VA Uninterruptible Power Supply

Thanks for the info. Glad to see I didn't miss out on a game. And now they seem to have their bug fixed without me having had to resort to cookie deletions.
