(Bruce Lewis) Earlier this year, I made OurDoings faster by using compression better with our CDN, Amazon Cloudfront. The enhancements I made to the s3fs filesystem are available on github: https://github.com/brlewis/s3fs
After that, I enhanced the slideshow to make the featured/unfeatured interface more user-friendly. I also dug deep into the open-source PhotoSwipe slideshow code to enable it to show photos as they're loading, for now just for Google Chrome. If other browsers start making height/width information available as a photo is starting to load, the same feature will work on those browsers automatically.
This early-loading feature, together with a few bugfixes, is available on github as well: https://github.com/brlewis/PhotoSwipe
