Happy People

As an IT professional providing remote services to end users, I deal with tons of text and files every day - everything from license keys to utilities and other files. Without this program I would constantly be flipping between countless windows to recopy information I had previously grabbed. Clipdiary has saved me untold hours with it's quick view database and ability to hold such a large amount of data.
