It is so bad to do it in portuguese... Lost of words don't get typed the right way (java's fault) anyways, my results:
Your score: 227 keys per minute ~ 45 words per minute
Language/mode: po
Ranking: Not bad!

Allen and brotherS: how can you type so fast? You must have a special keyboard, right? Or your keyboard only lasts for one month? ;)

hrm, seems pretty fscked up... appearantly I missed one word at the start, and what I thought was highlighting of the current word to type was indicating I was typing wrong - doh. I was pretty fast tho :P

I've just got a plain jane keyboard that came with cheap emachines computer ;) I've been coding web pages/scripts for a few years though. (What's your excuse, mouser? :)

Actually I've slowed down a good bit over the last few years.

Hehe... no, just a 'natural' keyboard - that's in use for more than a year already now and still looks pretty good...

Your score: system error: divided by null.
Sorry but our system can't manage your backwardnesses speed. Please try to type a little bit faster. Do you want to try again?

I have a fairly fast typing speed, but it has the disadvantage of bringing a number of typos with it. If I could slow down a bit, my net result would be a higher wpm I think...

i agree with Edvard, i think this typing test is anti-corrector biased.  all you who are scoring higher than me are obviously making a trillion mistakes that you are able to ignore and not correct, wyle my typingg is alwayz correketed to prefection and thatts why im' being peanilized.

So I stink at typing random words.  I tend to get ahead of the system.  If I know what I will be typing I can think ahead a word or two and increase my overall speed.  Plus, yes, I like to correct my mistakes.

I never was really good in typing class  ;D

you know this is a great point that hadn't ocured to me.
this test may be as much a test of READING fast and connecting reading to writing as a test of typing.
the rest of us are faster at typing their own thoughts, you guys are just freaks of nature.
yeah thats my story and im sticking to it.

I can't touch type so I was damed from the start. Luckly in programming I think more slowly than I type so it doesn't handicap me.

must say i'm amazed at these high speeds people are getting. perhaps yet another example of how we tend to believe we are above the average in most things - well, i certainly have to accept my typing is certainly below the average around here. i thought 50 was fast before i saw this thread.
