speeding up a paste operation




In retrospect, I should have created the file some other way, but still..
- grab the top 1M hosts from from
http://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/umbrella-static/index.html
- open w/ libreoffice
- select the host name column, right click & select copy (all 1 million lines)
- (mintty 2.9.0 window already open) vi /tmp/hosts
- i  (get into insert mode)
- right click (which I have set to "paste")

data is still scrolling by & it's not even up to 100K lines yet :(

Is there some way to make a paste operation faster in mintty (or vim
or whatever the slowpoke is)?

TIA
Lee
