Jacko.MY Before & After

Oh~ Finally I am back!!

Although it's a long weekend because of Merdeka, but I didn't really get a big chunk of time in one shot to blog more. Due to "overdraft" of my zZzZzZ time in the past few days, I gotta claim it back. Then, gotta wake up early like working day for a fun event (Haha!! Those people now should learn how "snake" Jacko is :P Wanna fool me, not so easy man!!) but somehow I managed to squeeze some time here and there to do R&D on some enhancements for the Jacko.MY.

Oh, of course it's not enhancement over my body shape lah... The blog title may be misleading like the Marie France's advertisement like this...


I didn't mean to mislead and I don't think I needed one, I am just nice to be a cutie piggy :P However, if any of you wanna sponsor me for a slimming program, feel free to contact me, I am more than happy to take the offer. Haha!

Okay okay, less nonsense, let's look at what "before" and what "after" Jacko.MY went through.

Let's go by the footer... Before...


Then in revolution progress... Hmm... Neat but too texty...


After...


So now, you can scroll to the bottom of each post, there is a BOOKMARK button. Hover your mouse cursor to it, a drop down will appear like shown above. You can bookmark the post online using the bookmark service you have registered, or click on More... for more services like technorati, multiply and so forth. Such bookmark is not really a bookmark like your browser favorites, it's more like a social bookmark that you share with others a good site and hence promote the site to the rest of the world. I will thank you if you bookmark with any of the services especially the digg.com, del.icio.us or technorati. 'cause you are indirectly promoting Jacko.MY to others. Thank you, ribuan terima kasih, nandri, kam sia, 谢谢, arigatoo gozaimas. I wanted to do more customization but there is bug in the script, let's see if the technical support responds to my email.

The second Before...


After... Can see the difference?


Here's the magic...


Usually when there is a link in the post, you will need to click on it to go to the linked page or site to see what is it. With this snapshot feature, just point your cursor to the balloon tip beside the link, you will have a live snapshot of the linked page or site. Cool huh? Of course you can still click on the link if you want. I believe this may practically be useful, you don't really have to visit the site, for instance, a link to wikipedia page where you can read the page directly on Jacko.MY. Also, you can point to the photo to get a bigger display. If you want bigger snapshot, click on the wheel icon at the top right edge, change the setting and refresh Jacko.MY.

The last Before for now...


After...


No special feature to readers, but a branding effort for Jacko.MY. JK aka JacKo. ;)

Let's see if there's any other things I can do to improve further...
