Super Long Screenshots
I would just like to know how does Joel make those long screenshots of fogbugz in IE?
Print Screen key on keyboard (or Alt+PrtScr for just the active window), alt-tab to image editor, paste and crop as necessary. (Stitching programs not required nor recommended as they're designed to correct perspective etc of photos.)
extremely high resolution desktop combined with a browser that's set to xx pixels wide by the entire height of the desktop?
You can use specialized screen grabbing software to do the same for a scrolling window. I have tried SnagIt from http://www.techsmith.com/ and works pretty well.
Take a look at Snag-IT:
