Upload Image module - why I use it and views integration

Setting up the Boost module to create static html pages of anonymous Drupal page views, then serving them from a completely different machine. It's kind of nice to have a way of having a bit of a static 'mirror' for your content, but I'm guessing squid is better at all this.

So how?

Just finishing the server migration of Workers' Liberty to the rather excellent Mayfirst collective's hosting. I just have to love their actually usable simple but powerful control panel combined with ssh access.
