Type Faster by Competing in Races

A fun way to improve your typing speed and accuracy is to join an online typing competition at typrX. This typing competition keeps track of your typing speed, while allowing you to compete against other people, either around the world in public races or with friends in private races. To set up a private race with your friends, follow these simple steps.

  • Once you have a typrX account, click the Create Private Race button on the front page and you’ll be taken to the private race page.
  • From there, copy the track code URL and send it to the friends you want to join the race.
  • You can click the Delay Countdown button to add 10 seconds to the clock if you are waiting on your friend to join the race.

Mark Allan has released ClamXav 2.3.2, which fixes an issue that prevented ClamXav Sentry from launching at login when running OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. The update also fixes an issue where ClamXav Sentry wasn’t able to communicate with the clamd background scanning daemon, plus Engine Uninstaller issues with Gatekeeper. The release’s one addition enables you to open the Sentry log from within ClamXav (and vice versa) by holding down the Option key. (Free, 16.9 MB, release notes)
