Shared Copy-Paste Cache

Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V, etc. now use a single, networked clipboard

This program saves RAM on your local machine when copying and pasting: pressing Ctrl-C now copies the highlighted text to an Internet server instead of to local memory.

To save RAM on the Internet server, only the most recent user input is stored in memory. Worldwide, users' computers are using about a terabyte of RAM for temporary storage. Think of the savings if this is replaced by a single, shared temporary storage -- the memory requirement decreases by about six orders of magnitude!

Highlight text, press Ctrl-C: text copied to clipboard on server
Press Ctrl-V: text from clipboard pasted at cursor location

Best use it quickly, before someone else does.

       What will happen is that you will press Ctrl-C, and before you can press Ctrl-V, someone else will have pressed Ctrl-C. So you will end up pasting the thing the other person copied.

       And hence why atomicity is important when dealing with sequential operation.   

       To help enforce ACID (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability) compliance, armed guards will be stationed next to each workers. Only one person may use Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V, at a time on the pain of death.

       Based on the title I actually thought to have a World-Wild Shared Gamble Clipboard stuff. You press CTLR+C, you go to the place to insert your stuff, press CTRL+V and bummm, someone else's stuff will get inserted there because your stuff is already inserted for someone else. Luck based text edition, what a fun it will be!   

       Clipboard Roulette.
