...in the typewriting department:


Type the alphabet from A to Z as fast as you can. As simple as that. Kind of drum-o-meter-style addictive.

My personal record so far is 1.922 seconds.

I challenge you gentlemen! :p

I can get down to 5.216 seconds, my touch-typing has lapsed evidently!
I'll just give it another shot...

EDIT: OK, 4.425 now, but I really must get back to work!

01-22-2006, 05:01 AM
:o That's crazy. I only managed 5.547 so far. Only did it a few times, so I'll try some more, but I don't think I'll beat that :)
Tnx for the link

I gotta have a go at that!

01-22-2006, 07:28 AM
My pc is waaaaaaaaay to slow for this:D
I finished typing for ages, when the pc was still counting: gggghhhhhhiiiiiijjjjjjjkkkkkklllll

guys you are fast!

01-22-2006, 02:30 PM
Yeh, but those are just single strokes, doubles would be much harder...

EDIT: OK, 4.109 now...God, I'm never going to sleep tonight.

3.594 2nd attempt!

Right, last time: 3.062. Still not satisfied. I need more coffee.

My personal record so far is 1.922 seconds.

under 2 seconds??? You're crazy:D!!!

I'll have to check that out myself.

It would be very sad of me to talk about 'techniques' here...


There are certain letter rows that you can 'roll' over in quick succession, with minimal motion: e.g. C,D, E, or F,G,H, and J, K,L.
That should up the letter-per-minute quotient significantly...

Oh dear, I HAVE to leave the house soon, or I'm going to go completely insane.

I can't do this without singing the "ABC" song in my head. For some reason, I have to synch up my fingers with the song so, I can't exactly go that fast unless I find a new way of singing the ABC's.

Perhaps you can do an remix ICM-death-country-style?
Play some dblbass-blasting on it?
Have some blonde guy with long hair screaming ABCDEF.... next to your head at 200Bpm?
You'll figure out something..

01-23-2006, 06:43 AM
In the meantime, I'm down to 1.662 seconds :p

01-23-2006, 11:26 AM
Cool game, heard of this before. I'm a pretty fast typer, so let's check what scores I can reach! :D

01-23-2006, 11:55 AM
3.405 (after quite a few tries)

Jeez, I thought I could type pretty well too :)

01-23-2006, 11:59 AM
Damn I suck! 4,9 something.

1.662... Fede, You have much time on your hands. :D

That's a good thing.............. I guess. :confused:


01-27-2006, 12:54 PM
This is funny but hard ! (I mean it's hard to do better than Fede.)

Here is my record : 2.313

01-27-2006, 12:58 PM
Nice one Seaborn!

I got it down to 2,6 something.. very addictive game!!

01-27-2006, 01:06 PM
The second half is the vicious part. For the first you just have to press A, B and I because the rest is only slides.

01-27-2006, 01:23 PM

From A to P it's just sliding, after that it's tricky moving from Q to Z... especially UVWXYZ is hard.

Btw, I think it also has to do with the setting of your fingers and hands you use when you normally type. I tought myself how to type (pretty fast) just by experience. But my left hand is kinda strange because my fingers still set to playing FIFA 2000 (soccer game) hehe... :)

EDIT: WTF am I talking about anyway, I should be out there practicing, but I can't right now so I end up talking about the alfabet game?!? Sad...

01-27-2006, 03:57 PM
Lol :D

Well, no more competitors ?

01-27-2006, 05:58 PM
i got 2.516 and me hands is shakin'...........gotta break 2 seconds!

01-27-2006, 06:09 PM

01-27-2006, 06:12 PM
haha random facts about chuck norris and vin diesel.... :p

01-27-2006, 07:19 PM
Haha yes, those fact sites are so funny!! Unfortunately, a lot of stuff is showing up with the same jokes and stuff like that about other actors...

"Chuck norris stopped the 3 bullets headed for JFK with only his beard.. the astonishment caused JFK's head to explode." :D

I did 3 seconds flat on that game a while ago. I can type at 120wpm on a good day, at least when I can be bothered trying.
