"Thanks for reaching out Mark. I must say, one of the thing you guys are doing well is your customer support via social media. My biggest general complaint is that we're getting less than half the download speed we're paying for. Then a couple months ago my internet slowed to a crawl. Download speeds were okay, but it would take forever to connect and would periodically drop out altogether. I called Comcast and they insisted it could be fixed with a modem reset. Nope. Another call. Try replacing your wireless router. Still broken. Oh, you must need to replace your modem. Okay. Finally after replacing every bit of hardware Comcast sent out an engineer who replaced all the cables leading into our house. Our speeds improved, but we're stilling having intermittent latency issues when connecting. I'd call again but I'm pretty sure they'd tell me it was my laptop that is broken (it's not). I'd appreciate any help you can provide! Thanks!" - Josh Fraser

"Browser support is the key though. It looks like JPEG XR is only available for IE 9 right now. But if it really does offer similar quality to JPEG w/ file sizes along the lines of WebP, it would probably make sense for us to offer that auto-conversion on Torbit as well." - Josh Fraser

"I dug into JPEG XR some more. While it's an interesting format, it seems to miss our #1 goal of being as small as possible: http://goldfishforthought.blogspot.com/2010......" - Josh Fraser

"PS as in PhotoShop? We needed something we could easily automate and run on a server & we wanted it to be lossless. I'm sure most of the images could be optimized a lot more if we could look @ them all by hand or put up with a little more compression." - Josh Fraser

"We looked at that and actually found an even bigger savings for PNGs than for JPGs. We ended up not sharing those numbers because we don't have a big enough data set of PNGs to really prove anything. Hopefully, we can revisit this as we continue to gather more data." - Josh Fraser

From Michael : How to change your life: Perspective - http://www.zerologic.com/Blog...
"Have you seen Tim Ferris' rubber band game? The basic idea is to go 21 days without complaining (long enough to establish a habit). Every time you mess up you move the rubber band to your other wrist for the day and start over. It's amazing how much of a difference a simple tool like that can make. If nothing else, it makes you more aware of how negative you are being." - Josh Fraser
