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.

Eric Garneau <garneau@iro.umontreal.ca> recently directed our attention to Everything Macintosh, an excellent Web page that brings together a huge number of links to Macintosh-related resources. Along with the Well-Connected Mac site (which has a lot of real content as well as links to other sites), Everything Macintosh looks as though it will be an excellent resource for Mac Internet users if it's regularly maintained.
