Updated version 1.0.5 released

* a few bug fixings
* new favicon with 32bit support (transparent)

Because of the fact that many posters from
imdb are of the format GIF the data base
coul'd grow very fast. A lot of accounts
support only 2 MB of MySql space. So you
run out of space with more than 300 movies.

saves up to 33% of mysql space.... read more
