Please explain why Copy 'em Paste multiple clip manager is better than Copy Paste Pro. (Which I paid for.)

Thanks, Jim.  Yes, the USB thing is connected to an external AC plug.  No problem. 

The question I have is that I just bought a brand new Micro-B cable!  And I have to fiddle with it to make it work....

OK, I'll look for a brand new e-SATA cable.  (Can't hurt.  It is only money.)

Macintosh / Some sympathy for his point of view

Bearing in mind how Apple pretends to be eco-friendly but makes it doubly hard to get repair parts and schematics, and having seen inside a lot of Macs and iPhones over the years that an Apple "Genius" has claimed are beyond repair while being easily repairable with some little effort, I have a lot of sympathy for this guy's opinion.

Macintosh / Copy'em Paste Multiple Clipboard Manager
« Last post by Jim Q on June 20, 2018, 05:02:54 PM »
 After nearly 4 years of making do with Copy Paste Pro (at home) or doing without (at work) I gave the highly-rated Copy'em Paste a try. It's really rather good, so good that I've even forgiven it for co-opting the Cmd-Shift-V keyboard shortcut I've been using in Thunderbird for "Paste Without Formatting". It's good enough that I don't mind paying for it. That's an indicator that it's very good indeed ;)

 It's been several years since I last used ArsClip on Windows, an awesome example of Freeware which occasionally made me forget the pain of having to use Windows 8.

If the USB port on your "toaster" is flaky, as it appears to be, then an eSATA to USB 3.0 cable should resolve the problem.

 I wonder, though, if you're powering the "toaster" with an AC power adapter? External power (not USB bus power) is typically required for reliable operation.

What do you mean by better Mickey?

Faster?
Easier and better connection to the devices?

It isn't a difficult question but its one that I don't concern myself with and thesedays don't bother to keep up to date with this kind of knowledge, I'd probably be ok with either cable.
For me super duper fast speed isn't a concern so pretty much any old Mac and cables are fine.
