Typing test fun

I was testing out a piece of software called TextExpander, and reading the various links in the helpfiles, when I came across a typing test.

Now, I always knew I was a slow typist, but this slow?

And that’s after I took the test three times. You can try it yourself by clicking in the graphic or the Speedtest link.

Anyway, I’ll write more about TextExpander after I have played with it some more. So far it seems really cool, but mostly for those who often have to type the same phrases over and over. For example, by simply typing a series of letters (which you define), the program will replace them with whatever you have assigned to that combination, whether it be a word, or a short story.

Unbelievable.

Superbowl Champions

The Giants beat them because, the Giants were the better team… and they wanted it more.

It may have been noticed, that I have not written anything about the Giants this year. Well there were a number of reasons. One, they started off terribly. Two losses in a row. Then, they had a tremendous defensive stand in the third game and looked like they might be turning around. I dared not write anything (no matter how I was feeling), out of fear of jinxing them.

Then, by time they played the Patriots in the last game of the season, they were on a roll on the road. Their defense, which had made such a great show in that third game, became a dominant force and Eli stopped throwing interceptions and fumbling the ball.

Just as the Giants seemed to be peaking, the Patriots were
