In 2000 the TCS web site tied for 1st place in the Web site contest of the Southwestern Regional Users' Group Conference.

In previous years, APCUG declared the TCS web site the winner of the "Speed" category — apparently the fastest web site in the west (or anywhere else, for that matter) — and honorable mention in the "Legibility" category.

In the annual competition sponsored by the New York PC Users Group, the TCS web site designed by Charles A. Lee won the "Use of Technology" category and was the top runner-up for "Best Overall". TCS's site was the contest's only repeat winner.

The TCS web site designed by John "Bud" Banks won the "Presentation" category and was a runner-up in the "Design" category.
