World Data and HTTP Headers....

The HTTP servers that host the World data files do not seem to return a 'Last-Modified'' or 'ETag' Header that could report when the file was last updated. I was looking to more efficiently get the files from the site without having to bring them down and peek into them to determine change.

I see the headers report file size. This should work but I suppose there are scenarios where there is removal of player data that occurs with adds that could cause the file size to stay the same hour to hour.

Anyone have any slick methods they are using to determine if a file has been updated without downloading and exploding?

Thanks!
