Default AJAX FTW!!!

So I've finally got around to really understanding how AJAX works. A few friends and myself are trying to put a little geek squad type company, since there really isn't much around here. Just about every little corner computer shop has failed, but they all lacked some things. In-home service, computer pickup, good marketing, etc. We plan on competing with Geek Squad and Cox Tech Solutions, directly. What they cant compete, Geek Squad and CTS, is the price... Well, anyway, I've been working on for our phone/dispatch agent, is a nice back-end where the agent can enter and retrieve data quickly, which is our goal. The biggest setback, it needs to be web-based because it will be utilized by field techs remotely via air cards on laptops.

So why not minimize loading times, bandwidth, and page refreshing intervals and use AJAX? Yup, so this is my first production web-app that's really going to use it heavily.

So far the coding has gone well and it works perfect with FF and IE. Fortunately, I tried to produce the issue with FF pulling AJAX data from cache, which appears to have been fixed. I've modified some server-side content without refreshing the page thus far, I have yet to see FF not pull server-side content from the cache, its modified in real-time, which I am glad to say is exactly what I was hoping for; despite the contrary statements from people saying FF will not pull AJAX data properly, grabbing old data instead of seeking new data.

here it is

Feedback?
