It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer. - A. Einstein

Hey Pythonistas,

It's time for another code challenge! This week we're asking you to create your own Clipboard History Tool in Python.

This is something that we've been wanting to do for a while so we're looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

The Challenge

The idea here is to capture whatever the user copies to the clipboard (think CTRL C) and "store" it in some way such that the user can see the history of everything they've copied for later reference.

If you need help getting ready with Github, see our new instruction video.
