    Remember when typing was an elective in school? You’d have to spend hours learning “asdf jkl;” and everything in between. The games were fun—racing cars, shooting bugs, or what have you. Before you knew, you were typing admin speed at 50+ WPM.

    Now there’s a new web-based typing tool for those of you needing a little typing practice or for those just wanting a little afternoon entertainment. It’s called TypeRacer. You can start out by practicing and typing movie quotes or book quotes. Make a typo, and you’ll have to fix it. By the end of the race, you’ll get your score in WPM.

    Those with fidgetty fingers should have fun with this...

    I'm idling around at 50+/- WPM... i never liked straight-up typing. :p
