New feature that I worked on for Leetster

Leetster is a social networking service for gamers, similar to myspace. I've been working with my buddy Ezra on it for a month now, and it has been one of the most fulfilling projects I've engaged in.
I programmed a personal image server called LeetPix. With LeetPix gamers can seamlessly put screenshots from games into their profile while they are playing. The users host their own images and we just proxy them.
We also have a dynamically generated signature image:
I can place this image anywhere, like forums, and it will update to represent my latest LeetPix. As a result, this box here can be a semi-live window of what I'm doing in-game.
