Guess I should mention how it works: The slide show takes the first attached image from the first post in a thread and displays it as part of the news system. If you hover your mouse pointer over the numbers, you will see little popup images of the next slide. If you click on 'Select Gallery' you can choose which area to view. If you click on select a view, you can toggle between thumbnails and full size images. Also, the news text appears when you place your mouse pointer over any part of the image. Just click the image to view that thread.
The best part about the slide show is that it doesn't add one single query to our home page. It loads after everything else on the page and displays the first image almost instantly as it loads.
