- Copy/paste from one computer to another
August 10, 2008 1:48 PM   Subscribe - Copy/paste from one computer to another
I found myself often needing to *quickly* get a string of text from one computer to another. Over the weekend I built this simple little website to do just that. Nothing special or fancy. No installation. No registration. No ads. Maybe others will get some use out of it.

Pretty sweet tool, I could definitely see myself using this.

One thought I had -- maybe after retrieving the text, the user can click a link to delete it from the system? To help limit the chance of someone else guessing their code and seeing their text? Just a thought.

But yeah, cool tool!

Great idea! In fact, I liked it so much I have already implemented it. Thanks for the feedback.

Neat. Though I am immediately reminded of pastebin.

This is cool -- I don't know exactly how or when I will use it, but I've got it bookmarked 'cuz I know that I will need it someday.

See also. Just wondering what differentiates yours, feature-wise, from the thousands of these out there?

I used this today to copy a connection string. Well done, simple idea- handy like mailinator.
