@MrEconomical I have no idea how your doing these, I can't comprehend that speed!!!

Profile icon
MrEconomical

@CodingCactus It doesn't really count as it's only one sentence, easy to burst. For a more accurate measure, I would recommend passages of from 2-3 sentences, but that can be for a future update

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@MrEconomical okay, I'll find some stuff tomorrow :)

@Ygngt I've reset the leaderboard for the longer passages, @MrEconomical hasn't set a speed yet, you could go to 1st place if you do it again.

Sentence suggestion: "Pi is the best mathematical constant and is a thousand times better than tau."

Profile icon
AmazingMech2418

Another suggestion: "This is easy to hack using os.system and the curl command."

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@AmazingMech2418 make it a bit longer?

Profile icon
AmazingMech2418

@CodingCactus Maybe "You can hack this program easily by using from os import system and then opening a bash console and using the curl command to pipe a new Python file into main.py to make it seem like you got a million words per minute."

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@AmazingMech2418 bit too long

Profile icon
AmazingMech2418

@CodingCactus For the other one, "Pi is better than tau and is the best mathematical constant and if you say tau is better, that is just because you are lazy and don't want to have to press two buttons on the calculator to multiply by two since tau is just twice pi, although it is unnecessary since pi is the best mathematical constant anyways, although you could argue that Euler's constant is a close second.

Profile icon
AmazingMech2418

@CodingCactus I made it longer though, just like you said!

Profile icon

@AmazingMech2418 I disagree with that comment, tau is better than pi

@CodingCactus scroll down

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@HahaYes there was someone that already had a headache before they looked at it

Profile icon

@CodingCactus Lol you get the point

Profile icon

The addition of the long passages is amazing, it really makes it so that we can't use the short sentence to type in bursts. This is a much better way to test WPM! @CodingCactus

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@kbadrinath_tcsp @MrEconomical suggested the longer passages :)

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@kbadrinath_tcsp should I reset the leaderboard for the new passages?

If so, what is your best WPM on these passages?

Profile icon
Aqtion

Just checked my screenshot. It isn't 134 WPM. It is actually 130. sorry for the typo. It is definitely lower than before. @CodingCactus

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@kbadrinath_tcsp ok, you are currently in the lead on these passages (no-one else has a time yet)

@MrEconomical @ygngt @kbadrinath_tcsp Can you set some new times, because I changed the sentences to more like short passages :)

Isaacatreplit

@Isaacatreplit Not bad, but I did hack the system a bit....

Profile icon
AmazingMech2418

@Isaacatreplit Stop the program, type from os import system, then system('bash'). Then, use curl <link to server> > main.py to replace main.py without forking it. Of course, replace <link to server> with a link to a server hosting the version to replace it with.

When you try to beat @MrEconomical at typing and are 44 WPM off...

Profile icon
AmazingMech2418

Getting closer...

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@AmazingMech2418 lol, I can only ever get up to 60

Profile icon
AmazingMech2418

@CodingCactus LOL! I kind of have an advantage though with three years of typing classes (well, the second two were more of MS Office, but we also did typing exercises) in middle school...

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@AmazingMech2418 oh lol, i didn't know typing classes were things

Profile icon
AmazingMech2418

@CodingCactus Well, at my middle school, the name of the first one was Keyboarding and Basic Word Processing, but I don't know if you have classes like that where you are. However, after time, you will get faster at typing...

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@AmazingMech2418 ye, I reckon at the end of all this eSchool period, or whatever it's called, I'll be quite a lot faster (hopefully)

Profile icon
AmazingMech2418

@CodingCactus LOL! Yeah. By the way, if you made this in HTML/JS, I would be submitting a screenshot with 1000 WPM... You should know why. LOL!

Profile icon
CodingCactus
Profile icon
CodingCactus

@AmazingMech2418 you could probably still do that hack that you did with tic tac toe?

@CodingCactus LOL! Yeah...

@CodingCactus I don't think 1,000,000 WPM is even possible, but why not change the code to make it possible?

I am trying to make a new thing in my website called circuits. It is going to be a bit like cycles. So every time somebody gives me a game or quiz to put on my website, I give them a circuit. Do you have a VWM Gaming Profile so I can note down your 2 circuits? @CodingCactus

@medcho no, but I would love it if you actually credited me for my code like you said that you would!

Tips on getting faster WPM: Buy a mechanical keyboard with blue switches.
Then only compress them halfway down so you can get an insane WPM
