Description
It's a Pastebin app, pure and simple.  A standalone front-end to pasting on Pastebin.com.  The official Linux Pastebin app wouldn't compile for me, so I decided to make my own, but it soon acquired a life beyond mere pasting.

Features
Written in Pascal and Lazarus IDE.
Easily paste text and code snippets to Pastebin.com and get links in return without having to go to the website.
Paste as Guest, or login and paste under your own Username as well.
Stays out of your way: activated by clicking a System Tray icon or Auto-hiding as set in options.

Planned Features
Make "Hide on startup" feature set-able in the configuration file. 0.2.1 and 0.2.3 auto-hide on startup.  0.3.1 does not.
"Recall previous link" or "Link history"; don't know which would be more useful.
Unicode pasting.
Paste & Quit mode (no tray icon, no autohiding)
Hiding & showing the main window via Hotkey.

Usage
Installation
Simply unzip the file into a location of your choosing, and run the executable.

Using the Application
Once the executable is run, you will see a window and a system tray icon.
Grab the window by the top bar to move it, click the bulls-eye button to hide it.
Left-click the tray icon to toggle the window hidden or showing.

Type or paste something in to the main window, set the options, and hit 'Send'.
Your text is pasted on Pastebin.com, the link is copied to your clipboard, and the window auto-hides if you have it set to do so.
If you will be doing a lot of pastes with the same options, you can hit "Set as Default" and it will remember your settings.

Right-click the system tray icon.  The menu has "Quit", "Login", "Auto-hide" and "Hide window".
Click "Quit" to quit the program.
Click "Login" to enter your Pastebin.com username and password. This allows you to un-check "Paste as Guest"
Check "Auto-hide" to make the window Auto-hide after every paste, un-check if you don't want that behavior.
Click "Hide window" to, well, hide the window.  That's there for the right-click addicts; you know who you are...

Uninstallation
Simply erase the folder that contains the executable, and erase the configuration file at C:\Users\you\AppData\local\pastequick on Windows, or /home/you/.config/pastequick.cfg on Linux.

Tips
Don't bet on horses.
See "Using the Application" above.

Known Issues
Only the ones you tell me about! :)
If you find a bug, file a report at https://sourceforge.net/p/pastequick/tickets/.  I appreciate feedback and feature suggestions, so give me a piece of your mind here or hop on the #DonationCoder official IRC channel on Freenode and let me know what you think.  Also, if anybody has experience with using Lazarus on OS X, I'd love to have you test compiling for that platform.
