    Or is there a better way that I should be doing this?

    I already serve all of the images for my site from a different server using rewrite in .htaccess.

    RewriteCond   %{REQUEST_URI}    (.*\.(jpg|gif|png|JPG|GIF))$
    RewriteCond   %{REQUEST_URI}    !.*wp-admin.*
    RewriteCond   %{REQUEST_URI}    !.*wp-includes.*
    RewriteCond   %{REQUEST_URI}    !.*phpmyadmin.*
    RewriteCond   %{REQUEST_URI}    !.*plugins.*
    RewriteRule   ^(.+)             http://images.whatsthatbug.com/$1 [R=permanent,L]

    I have rsync running with inotify so if a file gets changed it immediately gets pushed to images.whatsthatbug.com.

    I suppose I should be redirecting .css and .js there as well.

    Does this qualify as a CDN for functional purposes, as MacGayvered as it is?

    No, it does not. All you realized from this is improved progressive render via browser pipelining by adding an additional hostname.
