A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

Should I go with compression

I am debating if I should go with compression of the Yahoo Search Results from my proxy following this post [Yahoo Developer Blog Entry]. I am trying to work out if it will be A) easy, B) worth it and C) Where to put it.

I could compress the results back to the client or compress the results to the proxy and then decompress the results to the client. Either way I will have to code for some fallback support, because some people who use my App might not have compression support in their browser and thus my proxy will have to detect that.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

It should be pretty straightforward. With 2.0 there's built-in support for decompression of SOAP replies. Check out the article that got posted last year @ http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnvs05/html/wsnetfx2.asp
