I didn't use it at first, but once I got the hang of it, I was hooked. I loved that my computer remembered the last hundred things I copied. It was so liberating. I could copy, copy, copy to my heart's delight with nary a thought to losing my precious memories. Er... memory. Random access memory, to be exact. And to top it all, the history stayed there between restarts. So I could copy something, restart my computer, and still paste the same thing. Those were good days.
But alas, progress comes at a price.
