random stuff gz and jpg

Seems twitter have launched a tiny url clone called, lets you pick a custom word to use, won't be long 'till they run out, example: the singualr form has already been used.

Yesterday we resampled all of the product images for one client, resaving them at 50% quality.
We also applied gz compression to the php output. Bandwith data rate was nearly 30% below the predictions for the day. Nice. And while there were some small tonal differences in the images I don't think anyone could confidently say which was the smaller one, certainly Mark (head designer) and Sandy (executive vice president in charge of product photography) we're happy with the changes.
