I have my site hosted (at least temporarily) on the student server at the college I'm attending. I recently did a complete redesign of the entire site. I have new art, and some information that's not on here yet.
Looks good though

No - I'd just adjust the compression on the JPEG so that you get the smallest size possible without noticing too much "fuzziness" or loss of quality. Depending on how much time you want to spend on it you can adjust each thumb depending on whether it needs to look sharp or not. I've attached one that I modified and saved at 10% compression in PS (or 90% quality if you'd rather look at it that way ) Anyway, went from ~23.5 KB to ~6.6 KB with a tiny bit of artifacting that could have been avoided probably by starting with the big image instead of the thumb.
So if you have 36 thumbs on a page, let's say 36 * 23KB = 828 KB. You could easily reduce each one to 5 KB on average, so that's 180 KB! You just saved your visitors lots of time.
I'll work on compressing all of the files in the next couple of days.
