Laying down the Challenge
March 10, 2006

I'm a computer geek, and as part of that I can type pretty fast. I'm strictly a "Windows Guy" now, so I have lost some of my typing speed to the "Next, Next, Finish" God.. but I can still get up there..

We had a "type off" at work and I managed to average 96 WPM. What's your speed? You can take the test here:

We used the 2 minute, Strategic Alliances test.

I'm pretty certain that Tom will be able to beat me handily, but I'm curious about how fast other people can type. Everyone seems to be well over 40 WPM these days, which was a pretty big accomplishment 10 years ago.


I've just completed the typing test with a score of 82 WPM. Would have been faster if I didnt make so many mistakes..

72 with 0 mistakes, I can't prevent myself from fixing mistakes which probably accounts for a loss. The test crapped out my browser with 16 seconds remaining though...

It needs Java? I don't have Java installed. Java is for commies. Damn commies.

91 wpm w/ no mistakes.. I guess accountants use computers just as much as computer geeks.. either that or I'm a computer geek wannabe.

118 WPM 4 errors first/only try (one was a spacing error though). bet I could get it to 130+ 0 errors if I retake :) I type way too much!
