I think we should invent a term for "the feeling of having something important in the current clipboard buffer"
Anyone else who is suggesting clipboard managers is getting blocked
@pl And also for "the feeling of having something important in the current clipboard buffer... but it is gone now"
@SitromRogir and not being able to remember what it actually was
@pl The clipboard memento feeling
@pl The Windows clipboard history (Windows + V) has saved my bacon countless times.
@pl "zoinking out" kinda captures the action of having something in the buffer and the adrenaline that goes along with not re-zoinking before you zoink in again.
@pl There must be a german word already
@Tak I do speak German and I promise there isn't any
@pl I highly recommend using clipboard managers.
@pl I always disabled the one that came with KDE.
LOL I'm a horrible person.
@MarcatoMarc I wouldn't describe it as particularly angst-y
@pl this is the kind of quest for which I turn to Douglas Adams’ Meaning of Liff, but the closest I could find there was
“The safe place you put something and then forget where it was.”
@rusty Close but I'd say clipboards are quite the opposite of safe, it's rather a volatile place
@federicomena though that's describing something else
@pl It feels to me like a little status LED is on in my brain until I make the paste.
Or like the little "tick tick tick" sound a car's turn signal makes to remind you that it's still on.
@pl I am prone to excessive wrecklessness when it comes to the clipboard buffer and code, so many lines oops ~* disappeared *~
@pl I'm sure German already has one.
