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.

Nisus Writer Pro Restores Classic Features

Send Article to a Friend

Nisus Software has released Nisus Writer Pro, a new word processor based on their earlier product, Nisus Writer Express (which remains available). Nisus Writer Pro adds numerous features that appeared in Nisus Writer Classic but hadn't yet been seen in a native Mac OS X version of the program. Nisus Writer Pro can perform attribute-sensitive find and replace operations (both manually and in macros) and expand glossary entries on the fly (somewhat like Word's AutoCorrect feature). Other newly added (or "restored," if you prefer) features include tables of contents, indexing, cross-references, bookmarks, text wrap around images, widow and orphan control, multi-page footnotes, line numbering, and an expanded macro language.

Nisus Writer Pro costs $79, or $99 for a three-license Family Pack; single upgrades from Nisus Writer Express are $45. (Prices for Nisus Writer Express have been reduced to $45 for single users and $79 for Family Packs.) Nisus Writer Pro is a 103 MB download; a 15-day free trial version is available.
