Literally. As some of you know of my project Flexamail (http://www.colonyofgamers.com/cogforums/showthread.php?t=11236), well there is a brand new feature that I think many of you might find extremely useful. At the same time, its very prone for failure or heavy load on our servers, so I want to test it with a subset of the community before going live.

First off, you can now save a snapshot of any website to PDF. Simply email savewww@flexamail.com ( once signed up ) with the subject set to the website to save. The PDF will be saved for download in your Stored File folder on Flexamail or you can send an email to GetFile@flexamail.com to retrieve it using email. Great if you want to backup a copy of a webpage, take a snapshot of a dynamic page or again, have a firewall in your way.

Second, you can now surf via email and get the results in PDF. Works basically the exact same as above ( or as www@flexamail.com emails ), but instead you email pdfwww@flexamail.com.

For those that are curious, but lazy, here is CoG (http://www.flexamail.com/GetSharedFile.aspx?id=2200) rendered to PDF. Granted, its far from perfect, but still pretty darned close.

Trying it out would be a big assistance to me, as I can see if there are any leaks, bugs, etc... before releasing to a larger audience. Let me know what you think.
