database-served images & toaster biscuits

been laboring away on the new livejournal.com image system ... finished the move from all user images on the filesystem to the database ... lot of advantages: makes for easier server clustering (no NFS), lets you throw intelligent "Expires" headers on the HTTP responses (if all pics have a new unique ID, any picture ID never expires, since it can't change... less HTTP traffic), and it'll later allow users to have different pictures to associate with different moods, etc. Anyway, the hard work is done now, so I'm going to go make myself an Australian Toaster Biscuit now. Mmmm.
