Thanks for the great template, it's my favourite one. I found what seems to be a bug with the template. On firefox (Windows XP-Vista / Mac 10.5 / Ubuntu 8.10), when viewing the homepage (image_template.html), it uses the cpu up to 100% (depending the computer). I found that if I remove the ImageFader script, it uses about 50% more cpu than normal. No problems in IE, Safari, Google Chrome or Opera, with or without the fader.
I dont know if it's a bug on firefox side, or in the template, but the ImageFader use lots of cpu time, even if the image is fully loaded, and without the ImageFader, it still uses way more cpu than on other browsers. I received few emails of people complaining that when they visit my website on laptop, cpu fan kicks in at full speed.
The problem appears to be only on image_template page, on Browse or About cpu % drops down to 0-8%.
