On keeping a "scratch file" for temporary stuff

Gabe at Macdrifter:

I keep a scratch file in my NVAlt library. I use it to keep random bits of information that I want to out live the clipboard. It’s not meant to be permanent just a stop-over to some other destination.

This is a great idea. I keep a TextEdit text file open throughout the day for this that I never save, but having a dedicated file in NVAlt sounds like a much better option.
