OK, I can't resist... if you really are coming to Ajax completely new, then Head Rush Ajax is an ideal book. It takes you from ground zero to a well-rounded Ajax developer, and you'll get a really strong grounding in asynchrony, the role of the browser, data formats, etc. Check it out...
Sorry, self-promotion. But that was too much of a softball to resist :-)

Hey it was there when I copied it! Do you have a recommendation of how it should be?
(Sorry, I copied the ContentLoader part from one of your examples. If you have a problem feel free to remove it)

The content loader does th check already for the 4 and 200. Look at contentLoader and you will see that. It does the check with the costant holding 4 and then looks for 300. If it is a match it calls your function that handles the request.
So you basically just need to remove the if statements in your code that are performing the same check. Only way that code will be called is it it is complete.
It was much easier than I had expected.
