jQuery PlusSlider Plugin Examples


A content slider that simply works...
The right way

I do not fear death,
in view of the fact that I had been dead
for billions and billions of years
before I was born, and had not suffered
the slightest inconvenience from it.
- Mark Twain
The difference between the right word
and the almost right word is the difference
between lightning and a lightning bug.
- Mark Twain
Nature knows no indecencies;
man invents them.
