Next Issue 08-Dec-03 -- We're taking next week off from our regular publication schedule so we can all spend some relaxing time with families and friends over the Thanksgiving holiday here in the U.S. I plan to continue moderating TidBITS Talk many of these days other than a few around Thanksgiving itself, and we'll be using some of the extra time to work on assembling our annual gift issue. Look for the next issue of TidBITS on 08-Dec-03, and for those partaking in the holiday festivities, enjoy! [ACE]
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.
