Geeks Rule! Victory Over Bling ...

Finally! I figured out how to capture the image from Sala's HTML Graph Applet, which I wrote about earlier this week.
My Blog, FlatbushGardener, visualized as a graph, October 26, 2006
This is a snapshot of this blog taken earlier this evening.

This will work on any Windows system. Here's how I did it:
  1. Ran the HTML Graph Applet against my blog until the knots straightened themselves out and all the dots settled down.
  2. Resized the browser window so the entire graph was visible and took up as much of the browser window as possible.
  3. Pressed [Alt]+[PrntScrn]. This copies the active window (the browser window) to the clipboard.
  4. Opened Windows Paint and selected Edit > Paste. (Any image-editing program which allows you to paste from the clipboard and crop the image will work.)
  5. Cropped the image and saved it. (This is not the easiest thing to do with Paint, but it's possible.)
That's it! Give it a shot on your blog or favorite Web site and let me know how it works for you.

I'm going to have to wait until I can get to a *real* computer to do this. This $700 make-believe laptop I blog with won't cut it. The html visualizer java applet bogs down after like my seventh little rosette...and I'm going to have several of them.

Thanks for the tip tho'... I am totally going to get mine up as soon as I can.
