Copy-Paste Data Between Computers

Using cl1p.net, you can create a URL that starts with http://cl1p.net/ (for example http://cl1p.net/deadline) and type a block of text. You can also upload a file smaller than 2 MB and password-protect the page.

Why is this useful? Maybe you want to send a small file to someone and you don't want to deal with email or FTP. Or maybe you just want to save a note or some code. It's like your personal Wikipedia.

  1. I didn't realize only one person could download the file...guess that makes sense though because otherwise it'd turn into a free file mirror. I reviewed the site myself at http://www.davidsterry.com

    and i downloaded you file three times just to see if it would work and it did...and really you should password protect your pages, as you can see, i added a little snippet at the bottom, but i was kind enough not to pword protect itm so that you could fix what i put there.
