Showcase Theme: Broken Link Found in Menu Css

Hi,
I am not sure if this is a known issue, but i would like to share an external link for subnav button to an image, which says ACCOUNT SUSPENDED.

============================
.menu ul li span { /*--Drop down trigger styles--*/
width: 17px;
height: 26px;
float: right;
background: url(http://www.sohtanaka.com/web-design/examples/drop-down-menu/subnav_btn.gif) no-repeat center top;
margin-top: -3px;
============================

I guess its better to place a .gif background image within the theme instead of linking it to external file on some other site.

At a certain time, i noticed that even after complete loading of the website, my chrome browser was trying to access sohtanka.com and it was displaying continue message of "WAITING FOR RESPONSE FROM SOHTANKA.COM"

Hope this share will help the community, to preserce the beauty of the showcase theme.
