Beat the world record on my first try :muscle: lol. No spaces between though, I’m sure I’d be slower if that was required

If I use three fingers at once, it’s faster:

Knew a gal that could type 300 words a minute., her fingers were a blur in a demo she did for us, of just half the alphabet in order.

Best I could do was 6.8 seconds in order with no spaces.

I was in band, so I was spared those fun times, but my father insisted I do Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing on the PC. Annoying, but now I type and mouse for a living so ¯\(ツ)

Edit: getting there! This game has made me realize I suck at typing the letter Q.

All I remember is “f space j space f space j space…”, spoken loudly in my ear by a teacher we nicknamed “Dragonbreath.”

6.113 on a bad keyboard

Try it on teletype keyboard, where only one key can be depressed at a time.

True story…

My older brother – who is nothing like me – had the same teacher as I, and she remembered very well that he tried to throw a typewriter at her. I’m unclear on the details, or if he actually lobbed it far enough. All I know is it took a couple of weeks for her to realize I was nothing like my brother.

If you’re on a Teletype, every key is depressed.

My daughter used to play this or something very like it as a child. She got stupid fast - to the point where ping times probably affected her score fast. She got down to just under 2 seconds.
