Browsing my blog - typing test

Haven't thought much about my blog lately. Though today I browsed it and came across the typing test. The website is updated and looks quite nice..

I re-took the test. Although my words per minute increased from 79 to 82 I dropped in the overall standing. Fun fact: top ranked WPM is 170! His/her fingers are flying accross the keyboard.

With the smart phones becoming a larger part of our written communication tools a would a smart phone enabled typing test be fun?

What I read on reader

Trends on Google Reader, who checks them? I did recently and in doing so was pleasantly surprised. I found out that since September 27, 2007 I read close to 12.000 items.

Who do I read most? This is also provided in a neat schedule that can be filtered based on various indicators. Topping the charts in the last 30 days are Massively, TAGN, Bio Break, Tobold and Hardcore Casual.

What you is difficult to interpret reading behavior, apart from the %Read column. For example I hardly read the full article of Massively. Partly due to the fact these are snippets to attract attention. More so because a lot of the topics interest me less. Why do I keep Massively? It gives me a nice overview what is going on in Games land. Bio Break is a bit high on the chart then I would normally place it. I expect this is due to my current interest in RIFT information.

An odd duck in the Trend is Productive Flourishing. This is part of my Food for Thought category of Blogs that I read out of personal interest in the topics and professional development where I go through a batch every odd week. Another blog I follow on this category is People Skills Decoded.

So what does your Trend look like?

Paul the Psychic Octopus had it ...

Out of a total of 64 matches played Paul the Psychic Octopus has predicted 64 out of 64 (or 100 %) of the matches correctly. The parakeets was wrong.

In the semi-finals the German Octopus predicted Spain to beat Germany. And they did!

Proof on Youtube, start at 00.07 for Octopus sweeping in for the Victory!

For the final match Paul the Psychic Octopus predicted Spain to win. Is he the almighty match predicting Oracle of the Universe?

Sadly the final was won by Spain resulting from poor performance of the biased referee team led by the british Webb. Regardless, congrats to Spain.
