My own personal brain cache

When I’m programming, emailing, or even just browse the web, I use copy and paste a lot to save things in the short term.  Things like logins, account numbers, serial codes, dates, etc.  Unfortunately, each of those notes wipes out the previous one.

I just discovered ClipX which is a really nice, lightweight tool which sits on your Start Menu Notification area.  It simply keeps a history of everything you toss onto the clipboard.  On top of grabbing text, it holds onto copied images as well, making it a great tool for holding onto screenshots.

Ultimately, there are a lot of things to think about – this little tool reduces that by one and can be a big help when tracking things back.  It’s not new, but it’s definitely worth having.


Update:

Depending on your settings, ClipX can have a pretty large memory footprint and use a decent portion of your CPU on load.  Just be careful..
