Remove 'Retrieved from' footer in printable version?

Question

First, I didn't know mwusers was back!! I looks great!

I'm trying to suppress the 'retrieved from' footer from the printable version of an article. I have no idea where I might override this (do I have to hack the skin?) Using MW 1.23.2 (Vector). 

Thanks!

Method 1: Create or edit the page on your wiki MediaWiki:Retrievedfrom while logged into an Administrator account and delete the contents (so it is a completely blank page). That should suppress the message from appearing at all.

Method 2: Create or edit the page on your wiki MediaWiki:Common.css while logged into an Administrator account and add the following code to the bottom:

/* hide the "Retrieved from" message */
.printfooter { display: none; }

Thank you! I get lost between when it's messages, CSS, or the skin itself that is place to modify different outputs. Or even differentiating between which elements do what. Much appreciated.
