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.

We plan to test our ListSTAR-based mailing list for TidBITS in the next week (and we'll be sending the next DealBITS issue out a few days early for testing purposes), so don't worry (and please don't respond) if you get a test message from us. Also, although the new subscription address at <tidbits-on@tidbits.com> is now functional, please don't use it if you're already on the current list that we're moving from LISTSERV to ListSTAR. We will try to eliminate duplicates, but the fewer the better. [ACE]
