...strange, I usually get around 25-30 wpm. I'm a terrible typist, using strange finger movements and all that... plus I make a lot of errors.

OH, and QWERTY

I got 66.14. Not bad I think.
Before I getting my first PC in 1996, I learned to type on a type writer, that was way back in 1995 .

I voted 1-3-3. Barely passed Typing in college (major AS in Systems); teacher had mercy on me (C+). Key a lot, but have to go back and correct. Lost left index finger... DANG that slowed me down!!!

Moral - don't lose stuff you may need later, even if it doesn't work that good in the first place (hint, hint)...

If you've just started with typing (most people here aren't in that category though), then learn dvorak - it's supposedly better. I personally find it extremely confusing, since I'm used to QWERTY. The other downside is few people use dvorak, so you'll still have to use qwerty at the internet cafe/school/friend's house/etc.

I think that typing speed test is both bogus and cool.
Bogus in the sense I think it's inflating my wpm (or was it cps). Maybe I read the units wrong.

It's cool since it actually will let you BACKSPACE!!! That always threw me off when using those typing tutor programs. When I hit the wrong key, I usually "feel it". So my inclination is to go back to correct it, not continue as though nothing happened. Then the backspace attempt counted as another error! GRR...

You should try IMing him some time. His response speed is unreal! I suspect he uses large amounts of amphetamines :P And yeah, he is a Mac user :rolleyes:

I've heard how superior DVORAK is for a long time but have never actually seen a DVORAK board in real life.

Neat poll!

I find most people into computers usually have some typing skill. Actually, it's almost essential to productivity when it comes to programming. In one class, it paid off, because I finished a 2 hr final project in the computer lab (one header in a print report off) that the instructor designed to not be finished in that time period. Of course, copying code helps, but also helps to get it entered in the first place quickly. Probably shocked the guy. :thumbup

Oh: 104wpm, 1 mistake.

It's Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5.1) running on my 15" MacBook Pro. :P Don't worry, I still use XP under Parallels. :D

@ tain: No amphetamines needed! :P

LOL - Sorry jcarle, but if it's anytime soon, I'll have to decline as I already have a full-time job for the next few months until my next semester. :P Although... I could work nights! :whistle:

35 words per minute, but not errorless. If I have to work out a letter the speed may be a lot slower (all words errorless)

It's my work, I work daily on it and at least 8 hours.

That's my trial and error. If my post contains some faults; I was not attent on my ticking speed. If I don't watch it I ticking too fast with errors. Not many errors, but some occurs.

I've heard how superior DVORAK is for a long time but have never actually seen a DVORAK board in real life.

Neat poll!

I have... one of my friends uses it on his laptop; he pried off all the keys and rearranged them into dvorak. It drives me nuts having to hunt 'n peck when I use his computer. Did you know the first line does not say DVORAK as it says QWERTY on qwerty keyboards? I usually end up switching it to qwerty, and I have the keys memorized well enough to type without looking, so I type on a dvorak keyboard in qwerty. :rolleyes:

lol gamehead, I'm going to hire you when I need data entry. :P

:lol: no no, that's what the dumb people always bugging you about something are for. Make 'em type something. takes 'em a long time, but they get it done and don't make you mad.

P.S., new tag on your user... MSFN Dev? What exactly does that mean?


Oh, and gamehead... you crazy mac user, you! :wacko: iThink you're nuts! :P
