Improving Website Speed
I think your calendar is fairly awesome. Thank you. I was looking at improving my website speed (http://www.esquimaltmfrc.com) and ran some tests. Is there a way for me to do the following things? How would I do it?
1. Specify image dimensions

2. Leverage browser caching

Re: Improving Website Speed
We do routinely use Yahoo's YSlow and Google's PageSpeed on some of these items. In some cases, some of the settings result in extremely minimal performance gains while potentially effecting the end-user experience.
The worse thing we want to happen is for a user's browser (or their ISP) to incorrectly cache old js files and potentially serve stale versions.
On the dimension front, we should have a size, but I will also point out more importantly that the browser should cache it after the first read. The re-size is strictly a client-side activity (and not even milliseconds in this case)
