Test your chops!

...in the typewriting department:

http://www.killsometime.com/games/game.asp?ID=404

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!

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!

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

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.

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

But,

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..

Cool game, heard of this before. I'm a pretty fast typer, so let's check what scores I can reach!
