Want a simple, responsive cross-fading slideshow, with images that are lightweight AND retina-ready? You got it!
Works in modern browsers and IE9+ (no fade effect in IE9). IE8 users just see a static image - but you can make IE8 act like IE9 with some CSS mods (see comments)
This post covers 2 topics that can be used separately OR combined. First up... the slideshow.

Responsive web design (done well) allows users to achieve their goals on any internet accessible device, but what if they *want* to view the fixed width desktop version of a website, even on mobile?
This post comes at a time when responsive web design interest is piquing - certainly here on DD - probably the result of those emails we've been receiving via Google Webmaster Tools, that basically tell us how "X % of your web pages do not provide an optimal mobile experience... your
