Delayed Paperclip: Background Processing with Paperclip Jump to Story

We talk a lot about improving your application's user experience by speeding up response times. To this end, Jesse Storimer released a new gem called Delayed_Paperclip. So, instead of interpreting and resizing uploaded graphics inline with the user's request, they're automatically thrown into a background job (via delayed_job) for asynchronous processing. This leaves your user to continue about their business and allows you to work those jobs off at your leisure.
