Thanks for the descriptive email yesterday. It will probably be a few weeks, but I'll definitely get back with you about the advanced graphics optimization post.

Excellent presentation at HighEdWebDev. Thanks for teaching me something new, in a lot more depth than I would have been able to figure out on my own.
