My quickest free solution came from an email Graham posted out on the beta BrainStorm email list:

but none as neatly as FlashPaste."
I found that their FlashPasteLite does every thing I need at the moment. Besides their Pro version they also offer to free tools that might be of interest to BrainStorm users. One is called ClipDiary and the other is called FlashNote.
ClipDiary is like a plain vanilla program that just keeps logging everything that went into the system clipboard. This could be my ClipMate tandem backup! Or maybe a MagicPaste preview tank!
FlashNote is a system resident quick and dirty note pad which could also front end BrainStorm.
I haven't check the system overhead of these tools yet.
By the way, David where is the beta discussion and BrainStorm model about tools that every one uses with BrainStorm? It's probably starring me in the face but haven't found it after a couple tries.
