You may have just noticed that you have downloaded a few megabytes of 
that depedia file through azureus.  That's because I just seeded a small 
part of this file.

I used the trick mentioned earlier in this thread.  I trimmed the 
?torrent off of the end of the URL and started downloading the entire 
file through Firefox.  After a few megabytes I paused the download, 
copied the partial file into the download folder used by my bittorrent 
client, and told it to torrent that file.  It contacted the tracker at 
amazon, which is indeed working, and the tracker found one peer (you), 
and sent you those megabytes.

So the amazon tracker is working.  And the file is indeed present on the 
amazon server.  But the amazon tracker isn't using the amazon server as 
a seeder!

So something is still wrong.
