CSS trick - reveal an area when printed

I had to complete some work for a client where they wanted an additional area where the employee could sign off the printed version of a form. They did not want the viewable version of the form to display the signature area until the document was printed. This is the code that i used to present a block of code however only when the form was printed. It worked really well as in the web browser you could just see the form where as when it was printed the additional signature area displayed at the bottom of the page. This code is probably quiet useful to some so I though that I would post it.

Telstra's now 8Mbps or 20Mbps

Telstra's has announced that it had dramatically dialed up the bandwidth on its ADSL broadband service. Millions of Australians now have access to broadband speeds of up to 8Mbps or 20Mbps, where they were previously artificially limited to 1.5Mbps. The up to 8Mbps speeds will now be resold to other Internet service providers which will increase the speeds all around. This is great news for all Australians as the price of bandwidth will now be reduced not only by Telstra but other ISP's around the country. This announcement is a little late on my behalf as this happened a couple of weeks ago, but better late than never.
