Using multiple clipboards in Vim

On of the first things you learn when using Vim activly is that when you delete something using x or dd that content is actually cut and put on a clipboard. Later you can retrieve that content using the p or P commanands. One thing that makes Vim more awesome than let’s say, uhm TextMate, is that it actually has more than one clipboard! Yeah! In fact, in Vim terminology those clipboards are called registers.
