    Re: How fast do you type? Take the test!

    On my first try I got 71 words per minute. That wasn't a great surprise to me, I figured that was about what I would get. One thing I would like to know, though is this: does it count a word as a 5 character string or a word as we normally think of it?

    Yeah, that makes it harder, because you have to read and write the word at the same time.

    You type 405 characters per minute
    You have 73 correct words and
    you have 0 wrong words
    On my second attempt. I thought I'd be slower since I don't touch type. I'd be interested to see what the Dvorak users get on this compared to the Qwerty users...

    yea, it tests copying speed, although i suppose there isnt really a way around that. they use the words they do because they're the most common english ones though, which i suppose is slightly more useful than 'the quick brown fox' or something.

    my typing used to be shitfast when i talked a lot on IM but ive grown antisocial in my age.
