Lightbulb Solution to the broken site comparison

Hey guys, found this site and its compare feature, but unfortunately it wasn't working, and as there aren't any other sites out there that compare PMPs/MP3 players, I thought I'd have a go at finding out what was wrong.

What has happened is that the compare area of the site is in a folder called "compare" and later the webmaster made a "compare" subdomain that redirects to the "compare" folder, but must have forgotten to change the absolute URLs in the javascript.

The way to fix: The javascript file "application.js" is loading the wrong pages.
It's loading "/compare/update_compare_list", but the subdomain has already put us in the "compare" folder, so the webserver is trying to load "/compare/compare/update_compare_list".
Just go through the "application.js" file and change any URLs that start with "/compare/" to just a forward slash "/". That's guaranteed to fix it.
