Repeated re-downloading of advertising

I've noticed that ediving seems to download the same advertising files before each dive, even in the same usage session. Maybe a good feature would be comparing an md5/sha-1 hash of the files, to check for the latest version (or godless alpha channel abusers) instead of downloading the entire thing again every time.

Surely this would save a significant amount of bandwidth and time?

Good point. That is some older code that hadn't been touched since we started caching images locally. Should be in the next version.
