Flashback to Cray walking past a line-up to get into a club, with the bouncer letting her in.
The female guard orders her to strip naked, which she does reluctantly.
Processing a large file this way would require a huge buffer and thus a lot of available memory on both client and server; denial-of-service comes to mind.
She explains that the difference engine is out here.
I try to accomplish similar thing for uploading files.
I can't seem to stream the content of the file to the service on IIS 6.
