Hi Zeus, if its possible can you check and see if I sent in the main email along with the first keyword email? For some reason I don't have any emails in my sent box yet I remember sending them last week.

I think the reason for this is that my email account was hacked because a bunch of sent emails are no longer in my sent box plus a few people in my email address book received a weird spam email that was sent from my email a couple days ago.

Thanks

Can we submit a secret code from a podcast even if it is from a previous week? I don't have much free time these days and was hoping I could listen to the podcasts and gather the codes during the Thanksgiving holiday next week.

Final entry sent.  Sent all 4 keywords.

I made a mistake and sent a first empty entry because I misread the rules and thought it was a total of 5 entries (4 keywords + an empty one with just Ultra X4 on the subject line) instead of 4. Sorry! pls disregard that empty one.

We're waiting to hear back from the winner.  Hopefully (for him), he responds in the next couple of days, or we'll re-draw.  Stay tuned until it is super official!

It would be sad for the winner if he never claimed his prize but I certainly wouldn't complain about getting another shot at that PSU  ;)
