I had clued in to the fourth video ahead of schedule as well (independently of that post, I'm proud to say ;-D), so I watched it several times before the game was available. Man, did it help! The only tricky question was the first one. I knew the second question right off the bat, and the anagram answer for the third hit me light a bolt of lightning -- no Google search required. I remembered the name of the painting from the book (not to mention after seeing it so many times in the Curator puzzles)

I had Google home loaded with the date/time module so I could see exactly when it switched to 1:00 PM on their clocks. I reloaded the page, accessed the module within seconds of 1:00 PM, and I finished the puzzle and filled out my google account name (the Puzzle Completion form, which is your official time stamp) some time between 1:01 and 1:02. :-)

I completed the Contest Entry form (secondary form after the Puzzle Completion form) just before my office wall clock (which agreed within seconds to the Google clock, from what I've seen) said 1:03. :-)

I think I might have a shot at being in the 10,000 finalists! I guess I'll know come Monday the 15th, when the e-mail notifications go out (cryptexes [cryptices?] will be delivered on Thursday, May 18th).
