What would you like to do?
$.get('/path/to/url', function (data) {
if( !data || data === ""){
// error
var json;
try {
json = jQuery.parseJSON(data);
} catch (e) {
// error
// use json here
}, "text");

Neat script. This saved my bacon recently so thanks a lot. One question: why does the dataType need to be set to 'text'?
