Just did a test. I changed my code to do the Ajax.get on a
URL with an absolute path on csociety.org.


Thing is csociety.org is also pm.purdue.org, so if we call
the same page on another server


You'll see it flakes. And yes, in afterthought it might be
nice to have a better failure mode for this example code,
like "information not found", but I'll beat myself up about
this later.

Interestingly, it used to work on IE 6, but it does not on
IE 7.
