How about a little Listerine to cleanse your mental palette? (I know I need one now). I’m such a nerd for typing games, so it was with no small amount of glee that I delved into the wonderful Typeracer Beta, which pits you against other online visitors in a Java-based race to type out passages from famous books and films.
The biggest stumbling block to me was trying to keep from reading ahead (which is how I normally type from another text) and just focusing on the word at hand. Anyone with a fairly comprehensive media knowledge might glean an advantage, as you can tear right through a race if you know the passage in question. I’m hoping I get a race that’s just a big chunk of a Jack Burton speech from Big Trouble in Little China. I’ll so pwn.
So get your Mavis Beacon on and rock your fingers with a little Typeracer Beta.
Anyone care to wager a guess as to how someone can nail a 475wpm high score? My mind (and fingers) just boggles at that.
And you can blame Sam Reich for your new obsession.
