How fast do you type?

Well... my first thread of all and it is about typing in nothingland. Go figure.

This is a great site to figure out how fast you type, and I use it every so often just to see where I am at.

Today I typed 67 wpm (without errors), and if you count my errors I typed 62 wpm.

Your turn.

oh dear.......

TBH, it's quality rather than quantity that coungts. Or, as teh ladies would say, speed is not the issue (altough I guess that on a literative point it...oops sorry, got distracted. where was I?)... oh yes, how fast.... No, it is the content that matters.... for example, take my own modest contributions.... I am not rhe fatset typuist in the world, nor the most accurTE, yet my posts are qulatititive, eraldite, and relevant to the issue at hand. Ldearn form my exsample and you wont go fART wonmg here.

Pretty fast....my finger really flies. Slows way down when I try to use two fingers, though.

Looks like someone at the typing test site needs to work on their typing :p .

Excellent! Maybe there is a prize or something if you notice it and tell them about it.

75 WPM, 5 errors, aggregate 70.

I'm way down. I used to type 100 WPM when I was working as a secretary.

And, incidentally, I have never taken a formal typing class.

I tried to make no errors, and I used backspace when I thought I did. I got 37 wpm with zero errors. I've never taken typing. I use 3-4 fingers when I type.
