Copy and Paste from any Computer to Another.

Most users have encountered the situation where they want to copy some text such as a product license key, from one computer to another. Often this means having to create a text file and then transferring the file to the other computer using a USB stick or CD. Here's a simple alternative that works:

HeyPasteIt! is a free web service that allows you to paste the text onto a clipboard on their site where it is then stored at a unique address. You can then access that clip from another computer using that address, copy the text and then paste it to a file or where ever.

I tried it and it worked well. It even handled multi-page clips. However you can't copy and paste images - it's text only. Another reservation is the site doesn't mention how long the clips are kept for. However my test clips were still available a week after creation and that's more than enough for the intended use.

For example:

Go to their site & type this code: 5C6 into this box on there site to see what I pasted earlier





This site is well worth bookmarking. One day you'll need this.

Down for everyone or just me?

This is a handy site if you are unable to connect to a particular Website but are unsure if it's down or if it's just you that has the problem.

Just type the site name HERE: and click on the blue text "or just me?" to find out.

Can your computer run that game?

Use this site to determine if your hardware is capable of running some of the most popular PC games out there.

If your machine is not suitable for a particular game it will suggest areas that need upgrading but more importantly it will let you know if your PC can handle a game before you purchase it.

Radio On The Net.

This is a great site for listening to your favorite radio station (Local & Worldwide) on the Internet.

It has sooo! many.

The only downside is that since the US tightened their security policy it no longer allows European listeners to access some of the American radio stations from outside the United States.

That said though, there is plenty still to choose from.

Check it out!

Live Mesh (Microsoft).

Access files from any computer on the Web.

Many people use more than one computer to do their work; for example, at home and in the office.

With Microsoft's new Live Mesh Tool you can automatically, synchronise files between multiple PCs and access them from anywhere.

You get 5GB of free storage & can control if you want to share files too, by making them accessible to others if you wish.

Note: A Windows Live ID is required.
