I got "correct typo" after every period because if I try to type quickly, I double-space after periods. It's how I learned - never bother to unlearn and not sure I should.

Got 70 wpm. A little slower than my younger days, but still decent.

In junior high I wanted to be a typist...glad that didn't work out.

For me, the space bar doesn't create spaces.

51, much slower than when I was in HS taking typing ... I was up to 65 then.
Not bad though .. I raced 3 times and won the 2 of the 3 heats.
It is addicting. Thanks for the diversion NML.

74 wpm, and got bit by the stupid double spacing after the period thing that Average Joe did. I still think it's right to double space after the periods.

I think I got up to 35wpm on an old manual Underwood in high school. And if I could type, I wouldn't let on; someone might expect me to...
