I had added my http mirror in right away on the first planet, but forgot
about the second until a day or so went by.  When I joined the second planet
I was uploading at ~10Mbit for quite some time but has since dropped to
nothing.  I show one peer for each torrent, but they're not currently
connected to me.  I've uploaded 26 GB on planet one and 18 GB on planet two.

I'll try to remember to jump in on this weeks' planet on Wednesday after the
http mirror syncs.
