Ever needed to share a block of text? How about just copying code of some sort from one computer to another? If you’re a Mines student this is probably the case, since most of us have to take C++ or an equivalent.

With that in mind, check out the list below. What are these sites, which vary in form but not much in function? Pastebins. Paste your text in, and that text is made available via a link for you and/or others to see. Plus, many patebins ad line numbers and syntax highlighting to the pasted material. The bottom line: the service is useful, the providers are many, and you just might find sometime that a pastebin is just what you need to get a bit of text from point A to point B.

So here’s the exhaustive list, mainly copied from here, but also from Wikipedia’s main pastebin entry…with more interesting ones first:

Pastebin.com (the original!)
PasteBay (from the makers of The Pirate Bay)
Hey! Paste It (New!)
Nopaste

Pastey.net

Paste.org

Hope this is useful to someone! Comment with any other pastebins you find.
