Broken images bug has been fixed

Images uploaded into the RTE box acquire the URL .../media/FILENAME which is recorded in the database.  These messages with their imbedded images can be displayed at various URL's which are not all directly under a group (eg http://fastblogit.com/seth); rather they can be displayed under url's like  http://fastblogit.com/seth/offset/6/.  This causes your browser to look for its image in the absolute place http://fastblogit.com/seth/offset/media/FILENAME.  But of course there is no such image at that URL.  Hence all of our images deep under tag rooms would have been broken.  To fix it i put a <base href="http://fastblogit.com/river/" /> tag in the HTML header.  Let me know if you have anymore problems with broken images.

Maybe it's just me, but i think the site navigates faster now, especially with the back (<) and forth (>) buttons.  That might be because the server is not going through the gyrations of looking for image files in a long directory which do not exist.
