"Tango canyengue" refers to a style of Tango that was popular during the1920’s. Reportedly, the long tight dresses in vogue during that era restricted the follower's movements. Therefore a short step style of dancing the tango was evolved. The dancers tend to move with knees slightly bent, the partners slightly offset, and in a closed embrace. This style of tango is usually performed in a 2/4 time signature. As the canyengue style was mostly not danced in ballrooms, but in taverns and on the street, the typical soft feet movements with close contact to the ground, were not possible, leading to a more "hopping" style of doing the Tango.

Yesterday all servers in the U.S. went out on strike in a bid to get more RAM and better CPUs. A spokes person said that the need for better RAM was due to some fool increasing the front-side bus speed. In future, buses will be told to slow down in residential motherboards.
