off topic again

While catching up on the thousands of RSS articles that showed up in Google Reader while I was on vacation for a week, I read Scott Hanselman's post about typing speed and speech recognition and immediately had to take the test.

Number of words typed: 261
Test duration: 3 min
Speed: 87.0 words/min. (435 keystrokes/min.)
Error penalty: 10
Accuracy: 96.2%

Ha! I win! (He managed 72.6)

Actually, I'm surprised I managed 87 wpm, but I have to admit, this test was slightly stressful. I was trying hard. I probably average around 60 most of the time.
