Airlocks don't always bubble. Your yeast might be going just fine. Take a hydro reading before doing anything.

I'm sure Revvy's around here somewhere...

Just let it ride, dont open for another day.

In the future try a starter -- I made my first this batch and I'm already fermenting away after 4 hours or so

I re-hydrated the yeast in warm water (cooled from boiling) and spooned some wort in about an hour before I pitched it and saw it moving around abit.

Attenuation's at 70%. Might be done, (depending on yeast and recipe) but let it sit for a couple more weeks at least.
