    Aye I'm always on FB, but I rarely check to see who's online so I usually just ctrl + shift + tab!
    Ah, and I rarely start new conversations these days due to work + study. I just reply to people. Infact, I have facebook blocked at the moment but keep messenger and often appear offline. We're a bad mix . Message me first sometimes .

    How's it been going? and nice typing speed!
    Mostly okay thanks. Stress has been an issue. The CISCO/MTA stuff is taking a backseat as I focus on A-level revision and I'm trying to appropriate funding so I reduce hrs at my job, to focus on study.

    I consistently get between 97-100. It appears to drop when I have to spell a word I have never heard of.

    Unknown words, for me, are fine. It's punctuation and numbers which are a bit fiddly :/.

    Mine is 50 at best, never quite mastered touch typing personally but my typing is 2.5 times my writing speed at least

    I use 2 fingers (both my first fingers) and can get 62. I'll take it, do definitely need to invest some time into learning to touch type.

    I spend too much time typing I guess.

    But, you know what they say about fast fingers.

    60-70 WPM. I type quite fast, led a life in front of a computer but sometimes I do slow down. You can't do a test and retake it again so soon otherwise you end up making mistakes.

    I generally use 3/4 fingers across 2 hands but maybe using less could actually be faster

    The only problem with using so few fingers, I find, is that it's difficult to type without looking at your keyboard at all. Since some of the movements across the keyboard are so large, it's tough to get them perfect, as apposed to touch typing where each finger won't need to move more than 1.5 places in each direction, so it's less guess work with distances.
