Visual Studio Clipboard Ring

Today I found out about the Visual Studio Clipboard Ring, which keeps the last 15 entries that you have entered into the clipboard using copy and cut (CTRL+C, CTRL+V, SHIFT+DEL), and lets you paste into the Visual Studio Editor an item from that list.

You just press CTRL+SHIFT+V when pasting, and each successive press will cycle through the entries. Very useful if you kept something on the clipboard, but then pressed SHIFT+DEL to delete a line, forgetting about what you wanted to paste! Which I tend to do a lot!

I have an iPad 2 :)

In fact I am busy typing this entry out on it. So far so good. I think I'll be blogging a bit more now that I'm also connected via 3G. Luckily the signal seems to be quite decent and speedy. The Wordpress app isn't the greatest at the moment though, I would definitely enjoy a WYSIWYG editor and a confirmation before uploading my entry. But it ain't that bad for a free app :)

Another much needed feature is the ability the pinch zoom the editor view, especially when correcting text.

Update: 2012-02-01: Switching back to Blogger from Wordpress :)
