As of today, BleepingComputer.com and two other sites, kick off the HP Magic Giveaway promotion. As of November 28th, 2008 at Midnight, Bleeping Computer is now accepting entries into the HP Magic Giveaway.

From now until December 4th, we will be accepting entries into our contest. The winner of our contest will be selected randomly and announced on December 4th 2008. Our contest is easy to enter, but does have a slight twist. Due to the size of the package, the harsh economic times, and it being the holidays we want our winner to share the magic through the spirit of giving. What that entails is that our winner will be required to share some of their prize package with another person or organization.

For even more chances, two other sites are starting their promotions today as well, so be sure to visit them to increase your chances of winning. These sites are:
For more details about the prize package, details on how to enter, and the full rules, please visit the links below.

Then the message should be showing like , " you have been entered " or " thanks for entering " . It shouldn't be , " you have already entered " .

Oh! I thought something was wrong and cleared cache/cookies and clicked the link again, expecting that entrants would need to indicate in the entry what their plans were for sharing the package.

What I get is

Unfortunately, your group is not allowed to enter this contest.

and there's no reason I can think of...I'm not in any "group" I'm just a user trying to enter the contest. (It's not a link.)

Corrine, staff are not allowed to enter the contest as stipulated by HP. If you are on the HJT Team, then you are considered part of the staff.

Kidgloves, let me look into it further. Not sure why you would receive that message. Were you not logged in at the time? You need to be logged to enter the contest.

It all goes to other posters except for the TouchSmart. I will let bleepingcomputer.com determine who they want me to send it to, I will pay the shipping.
Thanks for listening.
