Living with ratpoison (March 19, 2005, 0) - I use the wonderfully minimalist

Decision review: Clipboard managers, and why you should get one (December 9, 2013, 5) - I’d gotten spoiled by the way that Emacs can stash multiple clipboard items in its “kill ring” (kill being its idiosyncratic word for “cut”), so when I found myself juggling lots of text in the process of posting social media updates and publishing sketchnotes live during a fast-paced conference, I looked for a clipboard manager
