Light or Lite ?

Friday, July 28, 2006

For those of you boyz and gurlz, who already know the Lightbox JS, congratulations :P Well, it was an awesome javascript to put on your blog/website which allow you to extend the flexibility, functionality, and beauty of your pictures gallery :)

But, after i considered to use the Lightbox JS, somethin' went a little bit on the wrong side :P when i went to some cybercafe, then i opened up my blog, it appears to me that the Lightbox took a looooooong tiiimeeee to load ! And this problem could be serious to some 56k ers :P so then, this was caused by the size of javascript itself, which is around 100KB (the whole package), so i decided to remove the javascript temporarily, i even planning on optimizing the size of the javascript itself ! after i tried it .. then ... *gosh* this is impossible for me to do ! :lol: then i stopped on doin' the great plan :P And so the page was moved to my googlepages ;)

But then, after that, someone pops out the LITE version of the LIGHT ! OMG this is so freakin' awesome ! That guy did the Great Plan which i have in mind back then ! And he did it without any difficulty, it was like some kinda mission impossible, and the mission was acomplished ! Applause to him ! You can visit him at his site here. And you can see the significant change on the size ! He bring it down to about 25KB ! WOW ! Impressive eh ?!

So now, i'm getting excited to bring this thing up my blog again :)

And you now what ? I'm beggining to feel irritated ! IRRITATED ??!! What happened to me ? OMG, i guess blogging is beggining to become part of my activity, that i don't realized it, untill it hit me, with the thing like, i'm not bein able to blog ... noooo ...!! well somethin like that :P

In the last week till yesterday, i can only post a comment on blog, and it gets worst on the last 2-3 days ! I have had a terrible accident, if you could call it an accident ?! Yesterday mornin, i opened up my blog, and the results is some kind of text ... which is a part of javascript and style and etc... it was kinda like the page have been CUT off in half, uhm.. it's not even half of the page i think ! Then i tried to logged in to blogger, but i can't ! Almost half a day !
Lucky me, on the afternoon, i do managed to logged in, and i go straight away to the template setting, and guess what ? ... Yes ! The template is missing, a big part of it ! OMG, how come this happened ?! Hm... well lucky i have backed up the template (i've lost one before !) so i reposted the template again, and when i hit the save button .... TADA !! The page is BLANK !! yes! BLANK !! OMG !! The tragedy continues ... for almost an hour ! Well, in the end, i managed to save and republish my blog ! *phew*

Well, guess that's it folks, so my appologize to all the readers, who have been waitin for me to post somethin ;)

Hm... today is the last day of my NeoCounter trial from NeoWORX: Quality tools for your web site and blog.

Well, when i started blogging, in honest, i don't have any readers AT ALL :P in fact i don't really know how to attract others to read my blogs. And i don't make one single announcement to any of my friends that i have blogged. Too lazy to spread the words, kinda like some salesman trying to sell somethin door to door :P

And at first, i don't seem to interested in bringing up readers to my blog either. Well, i thought that, yeah, i blog my own way, i blog anything that i wanted to blog, and i'm not the typical blogger, who blog my daily routines, my story, or my life, or anythin' bout that. Coz, i don't like doin' that, i don't even like the idea of a diary or somethin' :P no offense to all the bloggers who write that way ok ;) it's just me, it's just that i don't feel like i wanna blog that way .... hm... but it seems, now i'm on that way :P this post sounds like it right ;p

Back to topic now :P Ok, after bloggin' for some time, i realized that i'm beginning to want some popularity :P well, at least i know that i have somebody to read my blog :P so, i search google, there are a lots of tools, web service, etc. who can give u some traffic to yer blog. So i give it a try. It goes to NeoWORX, since it can display flags of countries :P i like the way it looked on yer sidebar or anythin' :) But NeoWORX gave it a TRIAL, which mean on some period after the first time you try it, some features will be disabled, unless you upgrade it to a Premium one, which of course, cost u some money ;) and the period for the TRIAL is 2 weeks. So i think, hm.... 2 weeks eh ? Well, why not ?! :P

And the good news is, IT IS gave you some TRAFFIC ;) yay ^^ Well, forgive me for bein' happy just to see some visitors from other countries :P I'm new to the blogging world remember ;) So this is like some joy and motivation for me to keep on bloggin ;)

Well, here it is some screen shots, of the NeoCounter on my footer of the blog, which i removed by now, because it no longer display the cute little flags :P The screen shots was taken 2 days before the trial periods ends, and the day before the trial periods ends (in the morning and in almost midnight)

2 days before trial ends in the morning b4 trial ends almost midnight before trial ends

Well, that's all bout it boyz and gurlz, not bad for a 2 weeks of trial eh ;) so if you want to give it a try, then shoot, if you're bored with this kind of story, just yell at me at the comments :P anyway you liked it, it's your life anyway :P

And have a nice weekend ^^


Flash Mind Reader

Thursday, July 06, 2006

Today i've found this amazing Flash Mind Reader which created by Andy Naughton at Cyberglass Design. This is a very creative, and tricky, yet entertained Flash thing ;)

Quoting from the author of this flash :

The Mind Reader was created while experimenting with math in Flash. We accidentally stumbled across a mind reading algorithm, which is used in this psychic movie...

So, without further ado, here it is, the amazing Flash Mind Reader

But, wait a minute, let's look again the quote, it says : '...was created while experimenting with math in Flash...' Hmm... so there's a MATH ?! behind it ?! Well, well, well, so i've saw that math thing, and began googling, and voila, i've found the solution for the mind reader ;)

So, here it is, you may click here if you want to find out ;)

Simple Next-Prev Link

Saturday, July 01, 2006

One thing that I've always wanted to put on my blog page, is some cool scrolling fx :P something like when i clicked the link then it goes scrolling smoothly :P Well after searching and experimenting, there are lots of javascripts out there to achieve this kind of FX, you can always find it using google ;)

But my last choice was on moo.fx :) why do i choose moo.fx and what the heck is moo.fx ?? Well moo.fx is a super lightweight javascript effects library, it was only around 4-5kb ! Imagine those size ! While others provided the same effects, they can take up to more than 50kb even above 100kb ! For me size does matter, since in indonesia here, there's still plenty of 56k ers :P

So, i began to wrote the javascript in order to make a link to each post on the Main Page :)

In order to make this thing goes smoothly, then you'll have to add the moo.fx to your page, i suggest that you download and host the javascript by yourself ;)

Well, then on with the simple thing on how to make the Next-Prev Link, at the moment this idea came up, i think of it this way, 'Hm.. in order to link to each post, then i have to make some unique id' and that's it ;)

So i create a <div> tag which contain some id, the id itself was simple, i use the id npl1, npl2, npl3, npl4, npl5 ... and so on :)

So for each post there's a div tag like this :
<div id="npl1"> .....(this is where i put the next prev link)...... </div>

Now, the next thing is that we have to make some javascript to do numbering id. In order to have it done, you'll have to add this code, just before the </head> tag

<script type="text/javascript">
/* Simple Next Prev Link using moo.fx by Efendi, Kwok - 2006-07-01 */
function NextPrevLink() {
  // properties
  this.count = 1;
  // methods
  this.IncCount = npIncCount;
function npIncCount() {
function nextPrevClick(n) {
  new fx.Scroll().scrollTo($('npl'+n));

This is the main class that i created for the Next-Prev Link ^^ well, the idea is simple, you just to hold the value for the <div> tag :)

and then go find your <Blogger> and <BlogDateHeader> tag in your template, and then put this script, which will looked like this :
<script type="text/javascript">
  var np = new NextPrevLink();

    <h2 class="date-header"><$BlogDateHeaderDate$></h3></h2>
    document.write('<div id="npl' + np.count + '" align="right">');
    if (np.count-1 != 0) document.write('<span id="pl'+ np.count +'" style="cursor:pointer;" onclick="nextPrevClick('+(np.count-1)+');">Prev</span>');
document.write('<span id="nl'+ np.count +'" style="cursor:pointer;" onclick="nextPrevClick('+(np.count+1)+');"> Next</span>');

now this code is divided into 3 main code
  1. It writes the <div id="..."> tag with the numbering, as for this the id will be npl1 npl2 npl3 npl4 npl5 and so on ( npl is Next Prev Link :P)
  2. Make the Next Prev Link inside the <div> so that when we clicked on it, it'll scroll to post related
  3. Increment the number ! (This is the biggest thing ;)) We increment the number so that the next post will have a different id ;)

Well that's it ;)

Oh wait .. there another one :P In the very bottom one find the </Blogger> tag then you add this one script right after that tag:
  $('nl'+(np.count-1)).style.display = "none";
That script is a little cheating :P the scripts will make the Next link to disappear from the last post ;)

or you can change the script to this: [Update]
  $('nl'+(np.count-1)).style.visibility = "hidden";
This as Johan Sundström says, is a good idea when you go to the main page and press Next until you run out of posts. Then the mouse cursor isn't positioned above a lack of Next button, as you would expect, to realize you ran out of posts, but rather on a Prev button suggesting there are additional posts.

Well that's all about it now :) You may try to put it on your blog ^^ And umm... don't forget to mention my name ok ;)

Have a nice weekend ^^

[Update 2006-08-14]:
  • For this hacks to work, you must host the moo.fx javascript file first ;) (thx to Raquel for pointing this out ^^)

[Update 2006-07-03]:
  • Added the initialization necessary for the script to be working, sorry i forgot to include it on the post :P the: var np = new NextPrevLink();

[Update 2006-07-02]:
  • Updated some typo mistake, pointed out by Caso Patologico, i open "h2 class date-header" and close with /h3, now it's fixed ! Thanks man ^^
  • Added some alternative to the user for the last script, this was pointed out by Johan Sundström, go give him a visit, he has a GREAT site ;) Thx Johan for dropping by, it's an honor to me ^^ and linking my post (mistaken with John @ Freshblog give him a visit too ;) )
