pixie dust for us trying to figure it out!! After I started changing up the times I entered I thought... oh gee what if today is the day they pick someone who entered at the time I used to enter at

DVR is set! Looks like my luck (or lack of luck) is holding out.

It happened to me tonight too.....first time since Jan 1! Just click the "OK" button; it will bring you back to the page you fill out. I had to toggle between the two pages for a few minutes, but it eventually brought me to the thank you page. Good luck.

Lucky!! I read about the Wheel of Fortune contest at 8:15 tonight and we don't have DVR! Just spent 30 min trying to find episode to watch on-line with no luck. Will have to remember to watch tomorrow.

Good luck everyone
me too! we can hope right!

Me too! Been entering every day and never had a problem. Been trying to enter for the past 2 hours and keep getting a technical error message that the site is unavailable due to high volume. Starting to get panicky that I am going to run out of time and not get a chance to enter today!

Thank Goodness!!! I made it through. Just tried to enter again and finally after almost 3 hours of trying I got the Thank You Message!! I was stating to get worried that I would have to chalk today up as a missed day

Good luck everyone. Still hoping for a call for myself or at least another Diser!!

For those of you who won or know of others who won, how are you usually notified first -- phone, email, FedEx delivery?
