When the browser window gets larger, the slider at the top of the homepage gets ridiculously big. This is a mobile first series, but since the mobile version of the slider is already working well (perhaps we should load smaller images, but functionally it's cool) we can focus on making it better for desktop now.

With some simple CSS, we can limit the height of it (literally setting a max-height). But we can also limit the height by limiting the width, because it keeps aspect ratio. Then if we let the overflow expose on either side, we get a pretty cool slider experience on larger screens.

Posting Code!

You may write comments in Markdown. This makes code easy to post, as you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in triple backtick fences (```) with double new lines before and after.

Code of Conduct

Absolutely anyone is welcome to submit a comment here. But not all comments will be posted. Think of it like writing a letter to the editor. All submitted comments will be read, but not all published. Published comments will be on-topic, helpful, and further the discussion or debate.
