Little Quicksilver Usability updates.

So, now that there is an adjustable legend, I have added a real legend to better explain what the colors mean, and hidden the adjustable bit.

Otherwise, I spent the rest of the day figuring out a way for the app to save the users selected zoom level. That way if they just changed the dates or the search condition, but were zoomed in on a particularly tiny zip3 or zip5, the app would "remember" the last zoom level rather than forcing the user to zoom in from the default again.

Otherwise, I have been talking with Brian about ways to make the application faster. One is to cache averages and standard deviations... and the other is to have a servlet that returns polygon details and eval the polygon additions in a loop eval style. Hopefully this will allow IE users relief from the "This script is taking a long time" error.
