I've just tried to log in to a camera manufacturer's support web-site, and received this error message:

Ajax request failure:Cleanse Error

I am well aware that Ajax is a kitchen / loo cleaner, but can anyone suggest what this means in relation to a web-site (which I was legitimately accessing)?

How best describe this. Ajax is a coding technique that allows a browser to get information to / from a website without you having to submit the page using a button.

So a use of AJAX would be when you see a drop down of possible search terms as you type into Google. That will be javascript code running in the background on your browser talking to a web service at Google and getting the list of possible search terms.

If you want more infomration on AJAX then have a look here

It's funny how computing acronyms can have unintended amusing similarities to other existing terms. As someone who loves fetish clothing I find it funny when I Google 'latex' and get results for LaTeX document mark up language. :(

I have that problem with this website. I punt (see Escorts) but I also punt (Stand on the back of a wooden boat and push it along with a long pole) and very occasionally punt (gamble).

Very many thanks - my ignorance is rather less profound now!

But in Yorkshire? I served three long years, without remission, in York, and never saw a punt!

I used to live on Oxford and occasionally go back.
