Nice set of resources ! I know one thing that tends to drain on a website's speed is uncompressed ( or "unflattened" ) images. You can usually flatten all layers in an image which helps drastically reduce the space it takes up, but if you want to take things a step further this website works wonders on images :

I think your banner is a GIF, correct ? If so, I believe the website I posted only supports compression on PNGs and JPGs. There are a few listed on google, not sure which is the best though. Razz
