Spent hours synthesizing few novel ideas on Notepad, and then did Ctrl-A, Ctrl-X so I could just paste it in my private blog. The blog wouldn't respond, ssh'd into the server to troubleshoot, and then realized my habitual use of Ctrl-C destroyed that very content I spent hours on. Only realized this after I got the blog back up running again. X-( I should start getting into habit of using VSCode or Gvim more.

    Sure. The important thing is in that you still have AGENCY.

    Can't you ctrl+Z even on notepad? But I agree, it's a mistake to write anything that long in notepad.

    I heard something to that effect, but I would definitely trust a third party over MS with data from my clipboard history.
