Submit Deadline Misleading

I was working on a picture for the US soldier drone contest and thought I had until 7 PM EST because the front page did not refresh properly. Even now it shows that there is 18 minutes left to submit. So I tried putting my picture in at exactly 6PM and it would not let me . Is there any way that my image can be added to the contest now or am I out of luck?

If practice makes perfect, but nobody's ever perfect, what's the point in practicing?

Since there were no votes cast yet, I've extended the submissions by another hour. Hope you read this in time to put an entry in.
I'll also change the refresh time on the front page from 50 minutes to 5 minutes, so the discrepancy with real time is minimal. Please realize that the front page only refreshes when you access/reload it again (so, just keeping the page open for several hours will not auto-refresh it).

Thank you. It shows submit ended now for me. I looked on two different browsers just now. I e-mailed you my image for submission a couple of minutes ago. I hope that you receive it okay and can put it in for me.

The image was in, so I closed the submissions 10 minutes short of that extra hour.

You are welcome. I also changed the front page to refresh once every 5 minutes (on reload).
