    Be at your login screen. Enter your password and quickly press Command + Shift + 3 to screenshot before it logs in. And there you have it!

    Many sites will tell you that you need 2 macs and a network to do this, :p.

    No, you don't! Just thought I would share something simple. :apple:

    Or... take your smart phone, start the camera, aim it at the screen and press the button.

    Upload to social network of choice, or be old-school an email.

    Done!

    You can also login remotely via SSH and capture the screen from the command line. Or at least, you used to be able to do that.
