Here are my results on my 2nd try, beat this if you can!
(Actually I did better on my first try, but I stopped early because it didn't seem like the damn thing was ever ending -- but it does end so you have to keep going until it tells you to stop)

My keyboard is Lysdexic. That's why I have Control-t to transpose last 2 chars typed. I opt out because it would be way too frustrating.  'sides, I was only in the mid-20s range using a physical typewriter when I took Typing 101.  :)

Mouser you must be working on The Great American Novel(tm) !!  That's pretty high score for a guy.  There was one chick in my typing class that hit the 70 WPM range like a day after she was taught the basic keyboard drills. She's prolly up over 100 WPM now. Of course way back then, Typing Pool was a legitimate goal for entry into a business career.

I got stuck with an old Smith Corona manual with horrible action.  The Royals had a much smoother stroke. I had to mash the keys to get the thing all the way to the paper to leave a legible letter. :)

I have demanded proof from josh, certain that it was a photoshop scam.. I have lost my wager and am now forced to acknowledge Josh is more skilled than me.  I am still coming to grips with the repercussions of this new information.  Is this today's new Army? Fastest typists on the planet?  My world is rocked.  :huh:

This is what it would look like if someone used a macro to cheat.
My real score is 51WPM

out of curiosity can you explain how you would use a macro to cheat on something like this?

Nevermind, i see you can copy all of the source text and then paste using a tool that will past in clipboard using keys, like my own Clipboard Help+Spell:

I am not satisfied that this is my best. It's been a long time since I tried to speed type rather than just naturally type--and didn't really hit my flow til halfway in. Also, my son was talking to me. All excuses aside, I did beat Mouser so I'm content to leave Josh with the lead.

I'd say Josh currently holds the (legitimate) fastest typing speed record.

What is the G15?

I think it's the Logitech G15 gaming keyboard that can record and playback macros.
