EDIT: :) I was just about to go to bed when I noticed my game chillin there on the front page. That makes me really happy. I apologize for the glitches, I promise I'll fix them tomorrow. Peace B)

You can either type A Brother of St. Francis, or write your own. They goal of the game is to type the essay for as long as possible without the text filling the screen. In the event of text overload, you freaking die. Good luck sonny.

Haahahaahahahha! Great Challenge.

I enjoyed this.
it was frustrating at first but then i realized whining about not typing fast enough is an insult to myself.
I am not a fast typer, but i kept up a relatively good rythem.

However i do think you should add a line or something to show where the margins end. Many times i was thwarted by a missed space in between two words.

At any rate good work!
I Thank You Sir For A Very Addictive And Challenging Addition To The Site That Is King.

It's possible.

Nobody really seems to like this game, and for good reason, nobody really liked practicing typing in school, nobody really likes a game about it. The game is possible, it just doesn't register any fast typing. You have to slow your typing down just for the game.

the only thing that can do this is an incredibly fast spider

And typing really fast is one of my few talents...

(My other big talent, by the way, is being a pain in the ass.)

Customex why would it throw you off? You can type the punctuation if you want. It's not like it will make you lose, or make your computer explode. It just ignores the characters it doesn't expect next.

I'll tell you what DOES throw me off. The fact that if I type above a certain rate, it IGNORES my keystrokes. It's like it has a monostable multivibrator sort of debouncing routine - maybe it ignores a keystroke if it has been no more than a tenth of second since the last one? When I type my very fastest, ~800 characters per minute, I'll type 2 or 3 letters and then it will fail to register one and then I'll be out of sync with what the program is requiring me to type next. I know I don't miss every second or third letter because I'm typing right now and I am not failing to press the button down far enough for it to register because surprise, surprise, the letters are appearing on the screen as I intend them to appear. I don't know if this failure is a result of my computer's processor speed being too slow or if this error would appear on any computer if the user types at the same speed I can, but I do see some people talking about something that might be interpreted as being the same thing happening to them, so at the very least, it looks like it fails in this manner on a LARGE fraction of users' computers. It could also be, of course, that it fails on EVERYONE'S computers, and the ones who aren't complaining about it are merely slow typers and the ones who would never notice the effect because you have to type very fast to observe it. You know I type fast because I can ramble on for 2000 characters without losing my train of thought.

Typed too fast, and the game couldnt register it. If it was accurate, it wouldnt be so bad.
