    I’ve been trying to update the RSS feed but the servers are getting hit so hard that broadcast machine isn’t responding. As soon as the first digg wave wears off they’ll be updated.

    I’m seeding the xvid torrent, and Azureus reports a swarm speed of 3.53MB/s and an average speed of 52 kB/s. Hopefully, your speeds will be increasing as more people finish and start seeding.
