Ilene Hoffman has once again posted the Robert Hess Memorial Macworld Expo Events List. If you're planning on attending Macworld Expo in New York City from 07-Jul-98 through 10-Jul-98, check the list for public events to attend while you're there. If you are hosting an event at Macworld, make sure to fill out the Event Submission Form. Also, we encourage anyone planning an event to read "Macworld Geek Party Guide" from TidBITS 415 for hints and tips on how to throw a successful trade show party, something that's done all too infrequently.
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.
