Bryan Eisenberg is a “screenshot addict”, in his blog post he comes clean by explaining why and what you can do with it today.
Now I don’t save full screens, but I do regularly take a full screenshot if I see something of interest on the screen, the rest of the page is noise to me. I’ll take a screen snap, ctrl+V into mspaint, wham bam thank you ma’am and I have a snippet of the thing that tickled me in the first place. Or if possible just drag a graphic into my pic folder.
Sometimes it winds up on Geeknews, usually it ends up in an archive on my PC at home or work ‘just in case’. Just in case I need it in the future, yeah I’m a pack rat like that, filling up my drive with graphics that looked like they may serve a purpose one day.
Like these fine examples chosen at random from my Pics folder, some are clickable. You can expect to see more random pics from my folder in the future, yeah I’m weird too:
