    i edited as i went along, a habit i have. then i stopped doing that once i realized that that probably isn't the right thing to do.

    (and i'm using my parents' computer that has keys that require more effort... i'll try this again on my laptop sometime.)

    I got Gross Words Per Minute (GWPM): 96, Net Words Per Minute (NWPM): 93 with two words mispelled and I didn't get the last two sentences.

    I believe my aunt can actually type around 200 words a minute without any mistakes, but then again, that's all she does all day :)
     
  12. Gross Words Per Minute (GWPM): You Suck!
    Net Words Per Minute (NWPM): See above.

    I did *much* better than I thought I would. I did not correct as I went along though. In real life I would have.

    Ha, ha, no offense but you suck at copy and paste:

    Gross Words Per Minute (GWPM): 9028
    Net Words Per Minute (NWPM): 1097

    It basically said all the words where wrong after the first block of text (which of course was perfect). So I don't know how it got the 1097 number.

    At 1097 NWPM it would take 12 hours to type the bible (King James Version) with no breaks. At my real typing speed (44 NWPM) it would take about 12 days, assuming I could maintain that pace.
