Typing speed, folks!

http://www.typeonline.co.uk/ if you're in the mood to take the test.

I just did that test above and scored 107 words per minute, with one mistake.

Oh, I thought this was running speed. Used to be a lot faster as a kid before teenage laziness bogged me down...

But anyway, typing speed? I'd describe mine as just meh. :|

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

62 words per minute, no mistakes. Not too bad.

I don't synchronize my fingers very well. I usually mix up letters and end up retyping most of the words in my sentences. If not for that, I'd probably have double my leisurely 53 wpm rate.

Also I thought it was about a sequel to FAST on WiiWare, lol.

Boy, it doesn't help that some of the writing samples for the speed test are really old. A Tale of a Tub? Doesn't exactly flow as smoothly as you'd hope.

I thought that was the point of typing tests - they're deliberately designed with difficult grammar, spelling and wording to test people's abilities across the whole keyboard.

I know when I write reviews and the like my typing speed exceeds 120 wpm. I know because I can knock off a 1000-word article in around 7-8 minutes.

I guess that actually does make sense now that I think about it.

My sample had a spelling error in the first sentence. "...dusty hired fly..." ??? wtf? lol

Anyways, I got 90 wpm and it claims I had one mistake. However THAT assessment is incorrect as you can clearly see below I typed my irksome phrase perfectly! B-)

That's not a typo. That's the actual text from the story.

I thought it was supposed to say, dusty haired fly. Despite that oversight on my part, what's up with the one mistake it's saying I made? lol

I had 33 WPW with 6 mistakes, although I'm not very good with copying what's written. Usually what I want to say is already in my mind, so I don't even have to stop to look up and such. Then, after I'm done with my work, I'll check over it, so I don't think this test is quite accurate for things like forums. Interesting, though.
