    Hello,

    This is for people who like clipping interesting factoids from their favorite internet sources. It's not earth shattering, or anything, and it has some limitations....but...i like it :)

    There is a free program called Pure Text version 2.0, it is written by Steve Miller (the famous guitarist?). Anyway, it is so easy to use! its a 28K program that is unregistered (does not change registry) and needs no installation. just click on it. once installed, all you have to do is select and copy what you want to the clip board. Then open your favorite word processor (word pad will do fine) and press "V" while holding the "windows key". Then all the text appears without the abnoxious graphics and formatting. I havent used it for long but have a feeling i will be using it alot!

    If I am wrong and this program sucks...in the words of DVD Jon, "...so sue me!"

    ===========================
