is the increase of the network traffic noticable? The query is pretty small
just text. Do u really think this might increase the traffic?

I also noticed that the image is not cached anymore. Is this true for all
blobs, or do I just access them in a wron way?
(I am requesting a php file in the <img tag with the statement inside and
output them before sending a jpeg header with an echo)

Thanx for your help,
