requesting "technical help" from flist
I Heart My Flist

I know there's a trick to bringing up the text on a screenshot that looks like a blank white page. I'm trying to "see" the Bad!Ben Fiction Page at http://web.archive.org/web/20031005144622/http://www.fortunecity.com/victorian/louvre/1272/badben.htm and I've got the blank white screen. Hoping for help from flist.

Did you try doing a select all? That should make the text visible.

TYK! That's it! The last time I did that select all thing was like two years ago, and I just couldn't remember.

Lol, I just wanted to say the same thing. I selected the text and copied it into Word. Scriggle beat me to it :) Kudos

Only slightly related to the above:
WHY FOR THE LOVE OF PETE WOULD YOU DESIGN A WEBPAGE THAT WAY?

And this is not the first time I've encountered a whited-out screenshot via the WBM. alskdjfhg

Reid's giant brain still hurts

I mean, has that person never visited their own webpage???

That sort of deficient focus requires a terse missive to management on the subject...

Re: Reid's giant brain still hurts

I even wonder if it's deliberate, maybe an extra tier of "effort" to make sure that the viewer REALLY REALLY wants to read that content (the times I've encountered white-outs it's always been fic that has a high potential for squicks and triggers...this one here being the "Bad!Ben" fic).

Re: Reid's giant brain still hurts

Jesus... if folks make it past your warnings, anything's fair game. That's just bloodyminded eyestrain.

I don't think they did :)
It's just that often the WBM doesn't retrieve everything, specially pictures. In this case, in the original layout there was a background image / color which made the white text legible. Background is gone, so it's just white on white now...

Heh, in a world where so many things don't seem to make sense, your comment is something that does. Here, have a virtual donut of appreciation.

I must ask. How bad is Ben? Will I love it? Is it long fic, pwp, are there victims involved. If so, can I willingly suspend my disbelief and accept that all parties are happy?

How bad is Ben? OOC to the max.

Will I love it? No.

Is it long fic, pwp, are there victims involved. Can't answer that in one. Assorted fic, assorted authors, assorted lengths and victims.

If so, can I willingly suspend my disbelief and accept that all parties are happy? For happy!fic, look elsewhere. All that's here is a world of physical and emotional hell.

If you read from this list, read for the sake of novelty and be prepared to want to run away and hide.

Ahahahahah! I wish I'd had you around when I discovered that page. All the brain bleach in the world can't fix me now. *g*

True words! You know things are baaaaaaaad when I consider waxjism's Murder Ballad to look like comfort!fic after this lot!

(BTW, did my postcard make it from the States to Australia yet?)

Ooh! Not yet!

I have a postcard with your address, but nothing else on it. Will get the kids to at least scrawl their names. *g*
