Hi There!

I am looking for an alternative to comfort software clipboard manager pro.. Features I need:

Clipboard that will take at least 30 entries and will copy pictures, text, links, webpages etc..

Simple Access to that history and ability to select and paste historical items.

Ability to assign text to keys... CTRL+ALT+T to paste text I have assigned.

Good support or active  community forums

Configurable hotkeys.. 

Things I would like:

Ability to share clipboard among machines (Home PC and Work PC to share Clipboard) Or have multiple Clipboards.. 1 shared and 1 local

EASY and SIMPLE Macro recording...

Needs to be compatible with XP+ 

Recommendations appreciated.

I have been using clipX (with Win7 but I believe it is compatible with XP).
Even though the UI looks a bit "dated", it works really well.

Yah I am not sure why they don't update the look and feel of these apps, I see a few of them all look like they were made in 1995!

I use Ditto: 

Ditto is an extension to the standard windows clipboard. It saves each item placed on the clipboard allowing you access to any of those items at a later time. Ditto allows you to save any type of information that can be put on the clipboard, text, images, html, custom formats, .....

Recursion: See recursion.
“It is important not to let the perfect become the enemy of the good, even when you can agree on what perfect is. Doubly so when you can't. As unpleasant as it is to be trapped by past mistakes, you can't make any progress by being afraid of your own shadow during design.”

I too use ClipX but it doesn't do everything that was listed in the op.

Ditto looks good.
