I don't write about scripts too often, but when I saw the webkit2png Python script I thought it could be really helpful to Mac users that were looking for an easy way to snag a screenshot of a webpage using only the Mac terminal.

Whenever I create a piece of code that I might want to reuse or reference in the future I always copy it into Evernote so that I can quickly search for it later on.

There are an infinite number of reasons as to why someone's Internet connection could stop working, but even with that in mind there are still a number of things we techies are "trained" to check first before banging our heads against the wall.

I normally don't post scripts and batch files that I use, but I wanted to share this particular script because I use it all the time.

You just have to throw the code in a .VBS file, and from there it can be executed in your batch files very easily.
