You could probably use Daniel Padilla's ScreenShooter
<http://dev.newtontalk.net/dpadilla/progs.htm> which will let you
email screenshots, although I think you have to use an older version
of GifServer & SimpleMail. Then there's NPDS <http://npds.free.fr/>
and GifServer so you could load via HTTP. Obviously, those two options
require Internet other configs, so not exactly easy.

Of course, you can install Toolkit in Einstein. Normally useless
because you can't go beyond the screen you're talking about, but in
this case that's all you want to be able to see & take a screenshot

Are there any other screenshot solutions?
