I just got internet on my computer in my room, and I am having trouble downloading torrents. Attached is the error I get when I try to download. Any help much appreciated!

From the common list of errors in the FAQ (http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/faq.php?faq=bittorrent#faq_getaddrinco):

bad data from tracker -
urlopen error - (7, 'getaddrinfo failed')
Usually you can ignore this, it seems to happen when the tracker is overloaded or otherwise flaky. Just keep the windor open and wait.
