vSphere performance overview charts working and printing

I was getting the IE "Navigation to the webpage was canceled" message for the performance overview window after upgrading to vSphere.
Fix was to verify (and change) the URL to a universally resolvable DNS
record in the file:
C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\VirtualCenter
(thanks to: http://communities.vmware.com/thread/233471).

Next was to see that no, there was no print button. BUT! You can use IE's print function that happens to be available in a few small whitespace areas. Here's one:

The second chart down is Memory (MBps). Right click in the empty whitespace between this graph and the left side of the frame. One of your IE options is print, another is print preview. There may be a spot on the first graph or other areas of the page, but this is a sure spot. Total hack, brought to you by me without google's help.
