Pasting Unformatted Text a Better Way - PureText
Lately the bane of my existence has been Alt-E, S, End, Enter. I do that all day long - to bring up the Word "Paste Special" Dialog, go to the bottom of the list and select "Unformatted Text" and paste my freshly vanilla-ed text into some application that's not digging Word's RTF schmutz.
Enter PureText (via LifeHacker). A little application, that I've bound to previously unused Windows-V, that pastes the clipboard's unformatted text to the current window. Fantastic. I've just replaced 5 keys with 2. That'll save me like 20 seconds a day, which over the course of the year will save me like 66 minutes. I will spend that 66 minutes watching reruns of Firefly.
(Oh, and it's 28k, which is just classy as heck. Points for style.)
