pastebin Available: paste.davidwalsh.name

By on  

Pasting code into the comments section of any blog is hell. The WMD editor does OK but it still strips out code indenting, comments, and so on. That will happen on my blog no longer! I've added a pastebin at the following address:

http://paste.davidwalsh.name

Instead of pasting your lengthy code directly into a comment, feel free to use my pastebin. If you'd like me to help you with some code that isn't working, use my pastebin. If you want to have others look at a chunk of your code, use my pastebin. If you created some really kick-ass ASCII art, you sure as hell better let me check it out at my pastebin.

Code chunks are saved forever by default so there will be no loss of code. Happy pasting!
