What does it do and how does it work?
Screenshot Grebba is a little tool that makes screenshots of up to 10
different program windows and displays them on its own webpage. I use
it on a server with various network monitoring programs running. From
every computer in the company I can then access the webpage to get an
overview of what is happening in the network.
Simply edit the file "grebbalist.ini": in every line enter the title
of the program window to a maximum of 10 lines. The title is the text
shown at the very top of the window, e.g. the default title for
"Notepad" is "untitled - notepad". Check the example file provided.
Then, start the program, adjust the timer to your needs (minimum
interval is 1 minute, maximum 60 minutes). You may edit the list
during runtime. The program then calls each window to the front one
after the other with a wait time of 1 second between windows. It makes
a screenshot, saves it as jpg file and creates a html file with links
to all screenshot files. Window titles that are not available cannot
be "screenshotted".
That's it. Nothing fancy but it serves my personal need for monitoring
and accessing the results.

When the program is running, windows will pop up and make normal working
with this machine near impossible.
This program only works if the desktop is open and no screensaver is

Please note that this progam can also be used in terminal sessions BUT
sometimes the computers are not fast enough to provide the picture of
the window. In this case, the screenshot will not be made correctly.
