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.

Mailing List Managers Updated -- The two major commercial mailing list manager programs, StarNine's ListSTAR and FogCity's LetterRip, have both been updated recently. New features in ListSTAR 1.2 provide improved templates for setting up new email services and internal changes that improve performance by reducing the number of DNS lookups when sending mail on machines using Open Transport. The ListSTAR update is a 3.3 MB download for either the POP or SMTP versions of ListSTAR. FogCity's LetterRip 2.0.1 is a maintenance release with a few welcome feature additions, including the capability to disable list headers for a list and support for Maxum's PageSentry server monitoring software. LetterRip 2.0.1 is a 2.7 MB download. [ACE]
