+ - Middle-Mouse button paste

Submitted by Michael Williamson
Michael Williamson (3630059) writes "I still find using the middle mouse button to paste incredibly handy, but I'm finding more and more applications that wipe or otherwise screw up the buffer. Do you also find the middle mouse paste indispensable, or am I just showing my age?"

I was active with ax.25 packet radio 20 years ago. What is actually useful is the ability to do this on HF radio. Here in South Texas I can connect to a gateway node somewhere in the country practically at any time and get a message out. Since the gateways are sometimes several hundred miles away, it would be impervious to any local disaster, provided I can get 12v at a few amps to run my gear.

What this country needs is a dime that will buy a good five-cent bagel.
