I really need to get some text I copied earlier on today (I have probably copied stuff hundreds of times after that).

My computer has been running from the time the text was copied. I do not have any clipboard programs installed.

Is it possible to get this text somehow?

I'm using 11.10.

If you don't have a clipboard manager then it's gone forever.
