I just downloaded and installed electric sheep. I've been using it as a screen saver on my windows machine for over a year and it works just fine.

The problem that I'm having with it is that when the screen saver turns on, it just says "Waiting to download first sheep" Its been up on my screen for over 30min and hasn't gotten the first sheep yet.

Any ideas? Is there some configuration that I need to do to fix this?
