We should count only perfect scores that weren't generated artifically (blink, blink).

I was going to make a fake one and try and be funny but I think my real results are amusing enough. I thought I wasn't bad a typing but it seems I must spend most of my time correcting all the mistakes I make.

That's actually how I type in real life, I made a special effort to slow down and go cleaner for the contest.
P.s. How fast does Cody type?

That depends. Cody can type extremely fast just using his beak - but as a result is likely to suffer a brain hemorrhage and also destroy the keyboard in the process.

Using his feet (claws) or wings only leads to frustration. So, he doesn't really type - which might explain the lack of posts from him on this forum.

Not bad for the first try. I´m not typing english so much. With a short training I could double the speed perhaps.

Didn't feel like doing a screen shot:

Your score: 135 CPM (that is 27 WPM)

Your score beats or equals 21.66% of all.

In reality, you typed 145 CPM, but you made 2 mistakes (out of 28 words), which were not counted in the corrected CPM score.

Your mistakes were:
•Instead of "better", you typed "beter".
•Instead of "ever", you typed "even".

I only mis-typed the one word because mouser failed to believe that I could type faster than he. Your challenge has been accepted!

^^ Nope. No secret message. I just copied the text, replaced (.) with "\1", and pasted in there. Ran it, clicked the button, and focused on the input. Tada. No real magic or subliminal messages telling you to give me all your money right now. I also accept PayPal and credit cards. :P
