    OK. I'll admit it. I'm a little anal about everything being exactly how it should be on my Mac. Proper filenames for things, proper tags for songs, everything where it's supposed to be. However, one thing that really annoys me is placing something in the clipboard to be copy/pasted later, and still being there after I've used it. Like just the thought of something sitting in the clipboard after it's served it's purpose annoys me. Is there any way to clear the clipboard in OS X? When I was on a Windows desktop the clipboard was cleared automatically when using FreeRam XP Pro to free up some of my RAM; but since OS X does such a great job of handling RAM the program is useless to me (that and it's Windows-only). So yeah, how do I clear my clipboard after I'm finished using it?

    I imagine a clipboard manager would let you do it. There's a bunch of them here
