A Duck!

I believe it was the comedy genius John Cleese who once said that the funniest animal is the duck.

Today I took a day off from working on resource scheduling algorithms and decided to write a fun little tool that I've been needing. So, ever needed to copy paste some text from your PC to your iPhone? Sending yourself emails is so lame. I wanted something that was fast, requires no registration and nothing to install on my mobile phone.

I give you Copy Duck:

You just paste stuff, take a snapshot of the QR-code, and then you see the same text on your mobile. Tested it on Chrome/iPhone but it should work on any modern smartphone (if you have a QR scanner app).

For the geeks: built with Google App Engine using Python, jQuery and Google Chart API.
