The company where I’m currently doing a project has two separate networks: one small network that is used by the developers for a new application and
another network, used by the rest of the company, where the application is deployed to.
Today I wanted to copy a small piece of SQL from my PC to the server in the network. Because using a USB memory stick takes too much time (insert the stick, copy the text into a text file, store the file on the stick, etc.) I thought: apart from using webmail, can’t I store the text somewhere on a site and download it from there, preferrably using a small URL?
The first site that comes to mind is tinyurl.com. But I would then have to create a specific page first and shorten the URL afterwards, wouldn’t I?
and opened up http://preview.tinyurl.com/ in a browser on the server and there you go! Cloud clipboarding!
UPDATE: some more Google-ing on the matter revealed two sites that do just this (but easier 😉 which are: http://cl1p.net and http://www.pastebin.com/ Once again this proves that anything you think up already exists somewhere else.
