I’m still pretty mad about the 1 mistake. Last “clocked” speed before today was 115.


Link to the test.

    You are a sick sick man.

    Wow. Nice though. I’ll have to test myself, but I’d be lucky to hit the 90 mark that Craiggers hits… I’m not such a speed daemon anymore.

    Okay took the test. Consistently at or around 100-110… BUT… mistakes galore. I think I came in at 105 at 8 mistakes most recently.

  4. I did just a tad over 100wpm with 6 mistakes. I feel inferior.

  5. When I opened your web page (yes, some of us are real men and go to web pages rather than viewing them through RSS) I thought the screenshot of the context box was one from where a ghost image I was pushing had finished, so I tried to click “OK”. How dare you deceive me.

  6. RickP says:

    Heh, Chris, I actually go directly to his and several other pages too.. something is lost in the RSS feeds… just no ambiance.

    Anyway, topped out at 122 with 3 errors just now. By far my best run. I’m done for the day.

    you guys will wise up one day.

    also, i did the run half asleep this morning. i figured i’d do it better later on. NOPE! still my top. i ranged from 120-130 on other attempts, each with more mistakes.

    Oh my. Dave is in on this. If you do beat me, let us know!

    I had 124 wpm with 1 mistake though I corrected it via backspace. Damnit!

    I don’t RSS a thing. I like spending hours a day clicking through all the journals/blogs I read 🙂

    102 with 2 mistakes on second try. I figured I better stop there.
