but the client has to tell the server it accepts that type isn't it
(at least that is what learned from your text)
now the cpu time is irrelevant when it comes to saying yes I do accept
that type, give me the file... but I can tell from my modem ligths that any
roundtrip is very bad and surely much more then 1%. Often its true that once
the request is answered and the data is coming the connection is pretty fast
(compared to my 19k2 connection) but in the initial phase the modem is just waiting,
