I’ve just tried the type speed test that I hadread about on Aaron’s blog.
My results (not excelled I’m afraid):
YOUR RESULTS ARE: Number of words typed: 145Test duration: 3 minSpeed: 48.6 words/min. (243 keystrokes/min.)Error penalty: 10Accuracy: 93.1%
For my defense I’d add that although I’m typing English since I was about 6 years of old, 90% of that typingwas inside of some kind of an IDE, and it was in languages such as BASIC, C and Pascal, rather than English. Only on the last year when I started blogging, the last half of a year when joined the Castle community, and the last couple of month of working at Music Glue, have I really done some proper typing in English…
So, maybe I typed slowly, but it was maintainable and testable.
