What did you change? Mine IE still keeps downloading thumbnails from the
server.

BTW, search result page is so fucked up now =P

More gross than an infinite loop downloading thumbnails?

Can you load the thumbs once, then dynamically change the visibility in
javascript rather than relying on caching?

Oh come one ... Who doesn't love a little back and forth bullshit? :)

 

Fine. :p

 

No, we can't. We already do that work-around for the little gifs like
the up-arrow and shit that we use on the queue, but those urls are
fixed, and are therefore I can hard-code something in the html.

 

If the webpage was not as dynamic, and everything was loaded in php
instead of JSON or AJAX, then it could be done, but then every single
frame of every thumb would have to be pre-loaded at startup. So there'd
be a big-ole slam to the server whenever someone looked at any of those
pages. Basically if anything is set via javascript dynamically, it will
not be cached unless it is explicitly called before the dynamic shit
happens.

Since the content of the webpage is dynamic, there is no way around IE
taking a shit on itself.

 

Tell Randy to put that in his pipe and smoke it.

Animation view in the media page? Those thumbnails are much bigger, we
will definitely need to use some sort of image cache in javascript to
avoid overloading our server/bandwidth.

So, Randy loves the animated thumbs. You can probably guess what that
means. He wants the thumbs in the queue, lib., fav., and hist. to be a
little bit bigger (maybe 100x75 ?). He also wants the media page view
to have the animation.
