 Hey Mike !

While i'm looking at my old files and the clipboard stuff, you (or
others) may enjoy this little thing. It let's you browse and copy text
as you go, no need to go between notepad and sites. It just collates
all your copies into a file. Only text though.
Just highlight any text anywhere right click and copy, next you'll see
it in the grabber. If you don't like it.. well,  tough. :)

Form requires a CommonDialog control (cmd1), an imagelist (default
name),  a RichtextBox(rtb) and a timer.
The imagelist contains two icons. I used the "light globe on" and
"light globe off" icons from the common graphics folder, but it's just
an indicator really.  Timer is set to a reasonable timeout, in my case
2000 milliseconds was adequate, i'm nt that fast with copying.. :)
