Thanks for the compliments, Nils.
The script is pretty specialized around the carousel-effect; it would require significant rewriting to convert it into a conveyer-belt slideshow. I've thought about making other versions (conveyer-belt, book-flip, fade-in, etc), but I'm currently buried in a PHP/MySQL project. Perhaps in a couple weeks...
In the meantime, this is good conveyer belt script
. Heck, I've even used it!
