Thanks Jordan,

I wanted to keep this post fairly short and narrow just for my own sanity.
 But maybe I'll do some more articles on the async theme and collect them
together for a tutorial/documentation later.  What if the next one solved
this same issue but with GCD instead of an async NSURLConnection?
