If you can get to http://6sxoyfb3h2nvok2d.onion/tor/
but not to your hidden service, then I'd suggest leaving it
running and checking it tomorrow. If you can't get to the service
above, then perhaps your configuration is screwed up somehow.

I plan to make hidden services not suck as much in the next release,
but first we need to get all these other bugs sorted out. :)

You don't need to be routable or have any sort of public IP to run
a hidden service. If you can get out to the Internet somehow, you can
offer a hidden service.
