Tennis ball keyholder


Slit through a tennis ball, nail it to the wall and you can use it to hold almost anything for you... put on two eyes for display as decoration when not holding anything. Holding a knife in "mouth" and wearing a beret would seem better though.

Stripping formatting while copy pasting

More than often, you need to copy-paste data from websites and around the internet or even from within your own hardisk. Formatting of the text is something less wanted in many cases. Here are a few ways to get rid of the formatting:

  1. Notepad: Copy-paste into note pad (in windows only) and then copy-paste it to the actual destination from their. Notepad won't support the formatting which is why it won't be carried along.
  2. In-browser striping: Try pasting text into input boxes in a browser in any website. This can be the "status" input box of facebook or "search" box for google, when you cut the pasted text back out of it, the formatting will be gone.
  3. Linux: Linux's text editors are smart unlike the notepad, they will preserve the formatting unless specifically told not to, but the recent versions of Linux support stripping formatting while pasting directly; simply use Ctrl+Shift+V when you want to paste a copied text without its formatting.
