What's wrong with my domain?

My website's domain is not resolving after ≈60 hours. The test link from the hosting service is working fine. The nameservers are correctly assigned over at my registrar. What gives?

OK, I'm new to this whole webmastering thing, and I'm a bit confused. I registered a domain with NameCheap early last week, and signed up for hosting over at LaughingSquid. I went over to NameCheap and set my domain's DNS hosting to the servers indicated by LaughingSquid, NS1.LAUGHINGSQUID.NET and NS2.LAUGHINGSQUID.NET. This was on Friday. It's now Monday, and I can't access my site.
The hosting page that Laughing Squid has for me over at websitesettings.com has a temporary link (a subdomain of websitesettings.com) which works fine and shows the "Hello World" index page. Also, if I do a WHOIS on my domain I get a whois record which lists the laughingsquid DNS servers. Still, I can't access my site through its domain.
I'm not sure what's going on here and I don't know how to proceed. I have a help desk ticket in at LaughingSquid but I figure you guys are likely to respond a heck of a lot faster. If anyone can help, I'd love some advice.
