I have gotten onto myspleen but nothing is coming down the torrent for any of the star wars stuff. I have tried some others that seem to have worked. Is there a problem with it just now?
nope, no problem. learn how to open your ports (note that this is likely impossible at work or at universities); this will enable you to connect to more users (specifically, the ones who DON'T have their ports open). If you use bittorrent without issue other than on the spleen, then you know that your ISP is not shaping BT traffic. That's about all I could tell you
