I recently came across a site called Typeracer where you have to type some text taken from a book or movie. As you type, a little car will move along a path to show you your progress. If you want, you can even race against other random people. Needless to say, I’m hooked.
They’re currently working on a program that will allow you to race against your friends. Wouldn’t that be cool? Can you imagine a bunch of us typing our little hearts out all at the same time and trying to make it to the finish line?
Anyway, check it out when you have some free time and let me know how you did.
So far, my best score was 58 wpm. Beat that!
