: Dan Gillmor found this little ap for a Mac that I want for my PC — namely, the ability to copy multiple items into memory (“clipboards,” the parlance) on one window and then move to another window and paset multiple items from memory. It is the blogger’s dream: copy the url here then one quote and then another and then the author’s impossible-to-remember name and then go over to your blog and paste each into a post. I want that. I used to be able to do that on my old steam-powered, coal-fired newspaper editorial systems. Surely, there’s some way to do it on an all-powerful PC?

: Silly me: A commenter has me read down the page and find a Windows version.

What I meant to say was: Why the hell isn’t this built into the browser or the operating system (now that they’re the same)? That is, I should be able to simply hit control and c and then a number or any letter of the keyboard and save something at that address.

In the meantime, I’ll try this ap.

: UPDATE: Damn, this changed my life!

All you do is (1) download and install the aforelinked ap, (2) when you cut or paste, just hit a number from 1 to 99 before you let up on the control key, (3) pay these people $20 out of eternal gratitude.

To hell with sliced bread.
