Hello! I just installed Quicksilver and watched a couple of screencasted tutorials. There's one though that I can't seem to make it work.

I'm not sure if this is with my Quicksilver or that my OS don't support the shelf and clipboard modules.

YouTube - Quicksilver Tutorial Screencast 3.0
The guy in the video talks about clipboard and shelf but I can't bring it up, or find it in my Macbook (i used both quicksilver and spotlight to search). The Macs in our office have the shelf thing in the dock but my MacBook doesn't have it. Is something messed up with my system???

Oops.. okay, after much probing... I found the clipboard and shelf.

I have the QS on my menu bar, so when I click on it, I choose Plug-ins and there they are!!!! Whew.

You can also call up Quicksilver then hit ⌘L to bring up the clipboard. To make it useful you must go into Quicksilver's preferences and set the clipboard to capture history.

I am interested, how many clipboard histories does it have? Can you say, store up to 200 histories? And then have a save-able clipboard?

Yes, there is. It's called the Shelf.

Yeah but that is all I'd use it for. And since I already have an app that is free, and does the same thing without taking up as much resources... there would be no need for me to switch.
