yes the preview is rather sluggish probably due to host bandwidth but it will work fine as local file.
the zoom is js.. kinda painful and i got main code from a website and modified it(and possibly messed it).. i'm trying to work on it.
flash would have made a smoother zoom transition but i don't want it to rely on a plugin.. i'll try to make a better zoom js but need to cleanup the code so i can work properly without the clutter.
1.) My new local home-page
2.) Just as good without zoom
3.) Better without flash
4.) Another cool widget like improved smilies.kmm
