There's been a minute but detectable uptick in interest even at the spleen since Simon Pegg's tweet
And I'm also seeing an uptick in subtitle requests, all strangely specifying that they want them for Empire and Jedi, as if they already have them for Star Wars...
So I think it's safe to say that whatever surge in interest we're seeing is global, and that people are following up watching Star Wars DeEd 2.0 with watching Empire and Jedi 1.0.
Most definitely - there's been an uptick at spleen for Empire and Jedi, and I'm also seeding an mkv torrent of the 1.0s elsewhere which has picked up a whole lot over the last week. I posted in the thread over there that this is NOT what Simon Pegg was talking about and that the 2.0 blows the 1.0 out of the water but I'm not sure I got through to them, heh
