Sure it's way outdated, but it still has interest. As of just now when I checked, it was gone !

( Either that, or I was looking for it in the totally wrong place. )

If the TUG Grand Pro feels the site is better off without that old tidbit, then removing it completely is better than showing a link that generates a 404 Not Found error message.

Alan - do we have an old outdated link to this somewhere?

[Edited to add..]

Nem'mine. Found the link in the Advice Section.

I note that the timeshare-users-group.com server no longer has a /tugdb/tradepwr subdirectory. I suspect it was inadvertently dropped when timeshare-users-group.com was moved to our dedicated server. Brian may still have the backup of the old server and be able to restore this.

Whoa -- It Came Back Just As Myteriously As When It Disappeared.

No longer missing is that piece of way-back information about Dikhololo as the original Tiger Trader timeshare in South Africa.

For a while there it must have been floating adrift in cyberspace somewhere. Now it's back in the TUG Advice archives where it belongs.

However that may, it was out of sight so long that the timeshare world -- shux, the timeshare universe -- has evolved substantially while it was away, & the Tiger Trader phenomenon from 1998 may now be only a memory.

So it goes.

my $.02 on Dik

I have both this So. Afr timeshare and one at Mt. Amanzi. I had a great run with them vis-a-vis, two concurrent weeks at KaEoKai in Kuaui, HI, also the Italian Alps, Wisconsin Dells over July 4th, etc. But now...Humm...now it seems to be much less tradeable. Of course I am a last minute, pick up and go anytime, traveler, so I don't plan very far in advance. Perhaps if I planned futher out, my SA weeks would pull better trades. It has been my experience lately talking with RCI that they are rather low on the totem pole.
