Essential streaming over HTTP


Added a page to my personal site to cover some HTTP techniques for streaming, and general content delivery optimization. 

In short, HTTP/1.0 does streaming (across Proxies) when the "Content-Length" header is not included.  Really nice to know. 

Unfortunately, most Java Servlet Containers don't implement the 'no buffering' option permitted in the Servlet Spec.
