Default Typing Game anyone?

I was pretty bored, so I decided to do some typing lessons to keep them sharp.

Anyhoo, I found this little gem of a website:

http://play.typeracer.com/

Basically you "race" against live, living people who type the same passage(s) you are and you can see where you rank up against other typists.

Anyway, out of 9 races, I've got an average of 68 words per minute (some as fast as around 85 though).

What are you scores and if your a regular user, whats your username on there and perhaps we could race at some point.

I'm trying to find "typing of the dead". :P I'll give this a whirl though. I'd say I type pretty quickly, especially since I don't have a mike (thus, during my FPS games, I can only type out commands...in the middle of a fire fight.)


[hr]

Over 10 games, I got 68.0 average and my highest was...89. :P I didn't write it down, but my average accuracy would be 95% I'd wager.

I've not tried this, but I've done several other typing tests on the web and elsewhere and I average around 95 words per minute... I've got as high as 99 but never could crack that hundred. I'm surprised you guys are so slow!

I'm with Circus. On Typing Race on Facebook (which demands 100% accuracy), I've peaked at 103. I'll give this a go.

Hit 103 first go on this one, managed 120 on my second go.

Problem for me in general is that I'm used to my smaller laptop keyboard, I can barely type at all on a full sized one!

Only had two quick games, got about 54 words per min (though I won both games). I am actually a pretty fast typist, but I often make little mistakes and go back to proof read what I've written afterwards. I'm not used to having to type perfectly first time, so I kept making mistakes and having to go back.

The other problem is that it uses some very strange pasages - so you have to re-read some words that you are not familiar with. What it's really testing is how fast you can absorb what you've read and then accurately repeat it without mistakes. Apparently without practice I'm not too good at it lol.
