Windows Azure project tweaks + Lucene

I have an existing Windows Azure project that needs some enhancements.

1. Make querying table storage more efficient. Each read/write from table storage costs money so I want to minimize the number of Azure API calls.

AS IS: API calls to insert or update use one transaction for each row.

TO BE: Batch the calls so that many row get inserted/updated using one transaction.

2. [url removed, login to view] - I attached a sample simple winforms app with most of the code you'll need. The point of exercise is to eliminate duplicate tweets and articles from my site ([url removed, login to view]). Use table storage and not SQL Azure.

AS IS: tweets and articles are not analyzed for similarity and duplicate headlines appear on the site

TO BE: assign a score to each tweet and article (add LuceneScore columns to the TwitterHistory and SiteArticles table).

The attached sample project analyzes the contents of any link inside of a tweet. Do NOT do this. Just analyze the text of the tweet.

The existing existing azure code save the contents of each article (not tweet ) in table storage. Use Lucene to analyze the article contents and not the headline.

Update the MVC 2 Web role queries (homecontroller) to take the new LuceneScore into account so that similar tweets and articles are eliminated from the site ([url removed, login to view])

3. Save articles contents to blob storage instead of table storage

AS IS: The existing Azure code try's to save the contents of articles to table storage. This often fails because table store can only handle so many bytes.

TO BE: Save articles to blob storage and not table storage

4. Implement caching so that table store isn't queried every time a user hits the site.

The code is in [url removed, login to view] in subversion. You'll get access to that and to my Azure account for deployment into the staging environment.
