AnythingSlider 1.4

I like devices like this: the 'Anything Slider' will put basically anything - photos, movies, text - into a slider. You can set the slider to advance automatically or have the viewer click through. It's a fun trick but should be used appropriately - the slider format, for example, is not appropriate for this PC Magazine article on forgotten games. We don't want to slide from one screen shot to the next, we want to read about the games. And the information is there, if you scroll for it. But the slider format forces the author to select some of the 'forgotten games' based on theior visual appear, which means some of them are fairly recent and not forgotten at all. Meanwhile, classics like Nettrek and Adventure, the grandfathers of them all, are genuinely forgotten.
