    I am currently using WP Super Cache on my blog but my traffic is too low to notice any benefit yet.

      I used to use this plugin too, and while benchmarking didn’t show that much of a benefit with load time, over the course of a month or too I noticed a lot less bandwidth consumption and a increase in processor consumption. I have unlimited bandwidth though and figured the pros didn’t outweigh the cons.

    anyone know of a good plugin that uses that lightbox hover-over affect on images in your theme? There seems to be like 50 dozen of them popping up, and I was wondering if anyone knew of a “good” one?

    All I’m specifically looking for, is a plugin that takes img tags and turns them into that hover affect, I already have NextGEN Gallery installed so its not that I’m looking for, I’m just looking for the lightbox effect, like you see on ajax edit comments for instance.
