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.
