  Sliders - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sliders is a science fiction television series that ran from 1995 to 2000, across five seasons.
The sliders had a finite amount of time to stay on each earth, a time which was beyond their control and was revealed on the timer's display upon arriving to the parallel earth.
Sometimes doubles of the family members of the sliders were found during sliding; Quinn often encountered doubles of his parents, and in the episode "Season's Greedings" Wade met doubles of her father and sister.

 Red-eared Slider (Trachemys scripta elegans)
Baby red-eared sliders were once very popular as children's pets until it was discovered that some of them carried the disease, salmonella.
Their name, slider, comes from the fact that they are quick to slide off of rocks, logs or the banks if danger threatens.
Red-eared sliders are found in most permanent slow-moving water sources with mud bottoms in the eastern three quarters of the state.

 welcome to sliders - an unofficial sliders site
Sliders first appeared in the spring of 1995 on the FOX television network in the United States and soon was being shown all over the globe.
Toward the end of the third season, a season marked by blatent movie ripoffs instead of alternate history stories, the character of Maximilian Arturo was killed off and a new character, Maggie Beckett, played by Kari Wuhrer was introduced.
John Rhys-Davies was fired from Sliders by the producers to bring in the younger, sexier, female character in an attempt to raise the ratings with teenage/young adult males.

 BASE WIKI : Sliders   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
All these considerations have lead to contraptions like the beer-can slider (a sail slider with two holes the size of a beercan), the bra slider (a slider with two cup shapes) and the cross connector (a cross between the four risers).
The large hole mesh slider is a rectangular slider with a mesh instead of solid fabric.
Although a sail slider might, in principle, be safe when used in combination with a conservative opening altitude on a terminal object, in practice the possibility that the jumper might have to deploy subterminal — and the extraordinarily unreliable heading in that scenario — makes the sail slider a very dangerous choice.

 Sliders
A slider is a control that is used to select a value from a continuous or discontinuous range.
Sliders can represent a series of discrete values, in which case the indicator snaps to the value closest to the end point of the drag operation.
If the slider represents a continuous range or a large number of discrete values and the exact value that is chosen is important, provide a text field where the chosen value can be displayed.

 Hard disk - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The magnetic medium (film) on the disk surface changes its magnetization in microscopic spots due to the head's write field, which is a strong and highly localised magnetic field.
The read sensor detects the magnetic flux emanating from the transitions passing underneath it through a small change of the MR sensor's electric resistance and this is converted by electronics into a stream of 1's and 0's.
In CSS drives the sliders carrying the head sensors (often also just called heads) are designed to reliably survive a number of landings and takeoffs from the disk surface, though wear and tear on these microscopic components eventually takes its toll.

 Cut The Knot!
On the torus version of Sliders, the counters simply wrap around the row or column they are in.
The same sequence could be used with any slider type puzzle that has two cycles that intersect in a single vertex, as long as one of the cycles is even.
Another variation of the Sliders puzzle defines the wrap around condition as though the puzzle is constructed on the surface of the Klein bottle.

 The Fall of Sliders
The recent two-parter Sliders episode, "Exodus", is an epitome of all that is good and bad about the fledgling television series.
For the uninitiated, Sliders started on the Fox Network in 1995 as a sci-fi vehicle to explore the context of social issues, such as disease and the proliferation of nuclear weapons, much like any of the Star Trek series.
In "Exodus", the Sliders land on an Earth that is about to be destroyed by fragments of a destroyed pulsar star which will irradiate the entire surface, killing everyone (I didn't know that pulsar stars were made of solid rock!?).

The Sliders soon realize that they would much rather return back to their own dimension, but things are not that easy.
Unfortunately, once the Sliders have entered a particular dimension, there is only a limited amount of time to reopen the portal, and there are only a few select places within each dimension they can do it from.

 Sunrise Sliders: On the Right Track
Single sliders have all the great features of typical slider windows with one difference: one of the sashes is operational, and the other is stationary.
And, where typical windows are almost impossible to slide, the 8 brass rollers we use on our lift-out sliders makes them easy to open and close.
Fully-operational sliding sashes flank a stationary sash on end-vent sliders; for center-vent sliders, only the center sash is operational between two stationary sashes.

It's not about the slider, it's about giving the control over to the user and allowing them to decide on how much or how little they want to see of the choice.
