Control C

Have you ever wanted to share data you’ve found on a larger scale? You know, perhaps a funny image or link you found recently. Or, maybe you need some information you copied earlier from an e-mail or a Web page and now you can’t find it. Well, now you can with Control C! Control C is a Web site where, once you’re registered, you can download their program for free and share what you find with others. It’s as simple as copy, paste and share.

Registration is really easy! You start off by entering the authentication code and then you fill out your registration form. Make sure you read through the terms and agreements and then click Submit when you’re ready to get started. You don’t have to wait on any confirmation e-mails or anything.

Once you’re registered, you are taken directly to the download page where you need to choose your platform. Your options are: Windows, Mac OS, Linux and Source Code. It was an extremely fast download and install as well. Once it’s installed, simply log in with your e-mail address and password. You’ll then see the Control C icon in your system tray.

Now, what this program does is collect all the information you copy and it stores it in your account right on the Web site. I cannot even begin to tell you how much of a Godsend this has been for me when writing up my cool sites!

To find your copied information, you can either go to the Web page and log in, go to Manage or you can right click the icon in your system tray and choose Manage Items. There you will have to input your password again, because everything you store is password protected.

Next, you’ll see what you copied and you can just click on it to see the whole entry. You can also delete what you’ve copied here by clicking the checkbox and then the arrow next to the Delete option. On the whole entry area, you can add comments, choose to make it public and see how many times it has been viewed.

If you run into any trouble, there is an extensive Help section. You can either click the Help link at the top of the page or the FAQ link at the bottom of the page.

This application is going to be a life saver for me for sure. I hope it will be for you too!
