screenGrab() isn't available in applets, because it writes to a file, which is a big no-no under the java security model.
the solution is a bit difficult.. you'd want to grab the pixels() array, and then somehow send that data to a web server. i've done this in the past but it requires a bit of additional scripting etc on the server.
