Default Do people seriously still say 'CUT & paste'!

Is it just me or does it really annoy you when people say 'CUT & paste' if you have any knowledge of a computer whatsoever you will know that 'CUT' means it will remove the text if it is editable, if you are copying from a website you are 'COPYING & pasting'.

Simple:

Cut = remove text

Copy = text stays in place

I'm not a computer nerd or anything like that but it really annoys me when people don't say it right!

Rant Over!

Cut & paste predates computers. People would literally cut out pages and use glue to paste them on to different pages

You may not be a computer nerd, but you are probably not old enough to remember when graphic artists and copy editors actually DID literally cut and paste onto a board to make copy layout AND early printed circuit board design...it's a terminology that is understood, but may seem archaic to you, like 'dialing' a phone...or a website 'radio' button - get used to it...it's going to be around for at least a generation...

And when was the last time you saw a phone with a rotary 'dial'? :p

Rant over :p...and out.

"over and out"...now that always bugged me...:rolleyes:

Tim,

YOU are talking about NEW SPECIFIC METHOD terms that oversimplify an ANCIENT METHOD to meld several documents. In fact, they would often COPY a document to CUT out parts they would use. So what would you call THAT? Copy, CUT and paste?

There are a LOT of terms that are lost in antiquity. HECK, some are less than 100 years old. Can we please TRY to save this one? MANY languages are related to latin. HECK, the guy that started RUSSIA was from NORWAY! Norwegian, Danish, and Swedish are VERY similar, yet they have decided even to have different alphabets! ALL use LATIN for the core characters!

I was born on a farm, so being brought up close to animals and nature, I know why our feathered friends do that. Not many know this, but birds are highly benevolent creatures. Most birds do this because they want to protect your car from the sun's rays. In days of yore it used to be called "bird wax." So now, when a bird coats your car with a layer of protection, you can shout out, "Thank you, oh benevolent birds, for blessing me with your bird wax."

How about that!

We had $14,000 damage to our house from a hail storm, so I'm having One "hail" of a sale to cover the repair costs that aren't covered by insurance. Get $148 worth of my products for only $27. Only 40 copies will be sold - less than 20 copies left! Don't miss this one!!!

Ummm... Yeah. I say that, at least when that's what I'm doing.

I moved a chunk of one email to another in a series of lessons today, and it was a cut and paste operation. Cut from one text file and pasted into another.

This thread is a bit bizarre even for OT...

When someone asks me to repeat myself after I just made an effort to say something, I sometimes say, "Copy, paste," instead of the the aggravation of saying it over again. "Cut, paste," would work too.

I am fine with "cut and paste" saves me having to type another word in, "copy".

But the most annoying thing being used in the English language is combining words together...

like Lagoonarium, (aquarium and lagoon) or Dogalog, (catalog and dog) which was used in a hardware add with dogs in AU.

Those terms may be clever, but they really P*** me off!

Glad l won't watch adds, anymore!

You have a disaster in the works.

Your finished product would be frankenstein's monster of documents.

The final step would be copy, making your method...

Copy, cut, paste and copy.
