I meant images, that are rendered to the full width of my screen. Seeing
the samples on your page confined to <900px wide <div> boxes, the first
thought of mine was: "why do I have to zoom-scroll these images, if they
are only take 2/3 of my screen - there's more free space than that!". On
second thought, perhaps you have to confine them in boxes for
a demonstration page, because someone might visit with a 30" monitor...

Is the lower resolution image needed at all?

At the second PM proclaimed you the release manager, you automatically
earned additional respect - hence the reaction :)

Personally, I really liked your Mini recipe and the name of this one
suggested it was a big brother or something, so I checked it out...
