Would you consider converting this over to a plain text/word/pdf file? It's something I would like to read but I doubt I'll have the length of time in one sitting to read it at my computer, plus I don't think my eyes would like to stare at the mnonitor for that long.

Hi Keith,

Doesn't your browser have the capability to print?

Yes, but I was hoping to not have to force it to print all the background images, etc. from Aikiweb page after page. Of course, I just thought to myself, why don't I just turn the images off, duh. Don't know where my brain is today. Nevermind.

You could also highlight the text and then cut/paste it into an MS Word document.

I've tried that. It doesn't really work. You get many of those phantom image boxes, and parts of posts go missing and are hard to retrieve. If you want to cut and paste, you should paste in "Notepad" (Windows users) and then, if you want it to wrap, cut what you just put into Notepad, and put it on MS Word. That will take care of all the images, tables, and hyperlinks.

Hi Sarah,

Keith was actually referring to an article here on AikiWeb rather than one of the posts in the AikiWeb Forums.

If you're trying to get a printable version of the posts, the easiest way would probably be to click on the "[Show a Printable Version]" link found near the top of each thread page. It'll give you a pared down version of each page without graphics and so on.

Hope that helps!
