I think we should assume (unless someone from Gear Live says otherwise) that these entries don’t count. Andru posted an update on the post and said:
Update: To those having trouble leaving comments, we require that your visit the site from a valid IP address and donít hide your user agent. If your IP address or user agent isnít being sent, then you will receive a message stating that you arenít allowed to comment.
I’m at my house which to the best of my knowledge is a valid IP and I’m not doing anything to subvert my user agent. The site is also having massive traffic problems. I’ll try from work tomorrow, but I’m not confident on this contest at all.
Also, I sent a private message to Andru and as near as I can tell, the system simply ate it.
