Actually there is a program called html2ps that translates the rendered html to ps. I haven't had much luck getting it installed - but it would serve to do the trick.

my @a=qw(random brilliant braindead); print $a[rand(@a)];

    I tried a similar thing a few years back, getting the page with wget, then using html2ps, then piping it to imagemagik. Unfortunatly it renders the 'screen' over multiple images. I never found a way to have it actually thumbnail it on one page (or after a certain screen size)

    True, but the key word here is "rendered html." Rendering the HTML of the page you want to screen capture is the most important (and most non-trivial) step, and it's that step that was omitted in the post I responded to. :-D
