For the image resizing I am still using ASPImage.

I use the FSO to check whether a thumbnail exists... If it doesn't, I call
ASPImage to create and save the image, and serve that to the client.
Otherwise, it serves the static thumbnail that ASPImage created in an
earlier page view.

Unfortunately, as I mentioned before, this does not help your situation. If
you still want to see the scripts, let me know.
