Stamina. There are several pages of opinions upon Stamina in the Russian part of the Forum http://urikor.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=422.

Yes, Stamina is very popular with the people visiting here.
Should be extremely useful for speed developing. Not for beginners of course (imho))).

:-) Usually, I use no tutors at all. Except Ежедневочка/DailyTasks just for the English alphabet and numerals, since February 2006. Before that, I was fully pleased with what I had earlier (200-250 CPM in English) - no need to type English :-)

well the russian championship sure seems more thrilling than the english one Smile) maybe i'll learn the russian layout if i have too much spare time.. that should be interesting just like in the good old days when I was trying to pass over 150 cpm Smile)) Just kidding... I'm not that maniac Razz Hmm.. I use Stamina every day to type text composed of random letters. It helps me increase my speed more. I find it very difficult to increase my speed since I've hit 350 cpm. I mean it was a steep increase from my original 150 cpm to 350 cpm (took me 3 months) but after that I didn't practice any more in the tutor which I had used (some program called GS typing tutor... it was pretty good for me although it didn't had such funny texts as Stamina has Smile I did type a lot every day because I used to play a game until 3 weeks ago on IRC.. it's called trivia.. maybe you know what is like.. There are trivial questions posed by an irc bot (lag free bots)and you have to type the answer as fast as possible.. It shows you accurate speed in cps( characters per second) because the answer is usually only one word which is written in a matter of 1-2 seconds. The first answer gets some points the second place less points and there's also the 3d and 4th place. There are some pretty cool bots which have extensive statistics about the players and their speed, number of questions, answers.. personal bests.. and anyway.. it's pretty cool but also very addictive.. I mean it's an entire community of people who do that almost every day And they do it pretty good. And there are championships and... ok I should stop now.. Don't want anybody to play that game. I've quited 3 weeks ago because it started to ruin my real life Sad It's a sad story .. sorry Sad The truth is it's pretty addictive because you can talk with people in real time and play and talk ( there's a little pause between the questions) Anyway do not ever play it! Not even for curiosity search for a thing like that. It's the most horrible thing that can happen to a person who likes typing Sad
Anyway .. back to my story Smile and after those 3 months I've played trivia 7 months ... increased my speed to currently ~400-450 cpm on first sight text.. and can increase it to ~500 cpm when I practice a text many times.probabily would have been better if I would'n have stopped practicing.. but I could not noticed that it's very hard to push the limit when you already type at speeds that high.. I type a lot but still the increase in speed seems so small Sad If you have some suggestions on how to increase speed when you already have a very fast typing speed I would appreciate Smile For example I practice along with the normal text some random text(random letters) and that boosts the increase a little Smile I would sure like to know how does Gem type 600 cpm almost every round Razz besides the fact he just does it Razz

Many Thanks for the translation Автандилина. I appreciate it!

My second suggestion would be about the typing script... In my opinion is a good script but it could be better if it would have a restart button next to the pause button or some keyboard shortcut to restart the typing like the Esc key.. it's pretty anoying to close the window and start it again.. it takes little time but it's the psychological comfort that's hurting Smile)


Absolutely agree with you here. It was discussed and I hope it will be implemented in the near future.

I join your gratitude.
As the admin of a site I wish to make the announcement.
In the near future in the championship there will be little changes.
1. Online a simulator will be added.
2. In tables speed of a press will be shown.
When the number of participants becomes enough greater (more than 200-300 person) - the championship will be broken into 3 parts.

Well, too much taking part in any community tends to ruin one's real life, doesn't it? I consider "talking" to my lot of Internet friends is risky, too )) ... Many have problems of the kind. And many are strong enough to keep/return to real life. It's very good... Smile
Sensiblu, do you know, here on the site you can "see" some people from that very trivia, or something like that!
For instance, one of the top participants in Urikor's "Всезнайка", Tarionar his name, told in his interview here: http://urikor.net/interview/i_05.html He has mastering typing on the trivia, and had many records there in knowing right answers. Now he has stopped, too. "There was only one reason for me to quit - it wasn't worth wasting time on those contests any more. I realized that the highest points would always get that one who spent most time on it (who sits longer than others)."

The higher speed, the less any new step ahead... Think of it as normal, first of all Smile

My opinion on the problem might be specific for me, and wrong to other people. That's all very individual.

As for the Russian alphabet, what it was that "helped" me type faster? no, made me type faster?
First it was my self-training for the USSR Championship 1991. Ten years after - it was (and is) working as a synchronist to type after speakers real-time. I hear one is speaking - and I'm ready to put all my hards to follow him as exactly as I only could. All my skills and abilities are "ON" in no time. When I type here in contests - I'm getting "ON" very lazy ))).
Practically speaking, one should have a real reason to type faster ))) . Since most part of the problem is of psychological nature...

1. You may try typing after somebody's song, after people speaking in TV, and so on. - The point is that not you but other people "define" what speed is needed.
It's something like the competition - is it there, or not. When it is, one types faster Smile . So, the day before, you've beaten me in Daily Tasks )). - And see, immediately I could improve my own result. (In spite of my knowing that now you type English faster and I wasn't to beat you, - but all the same, I could improve. If but not you getting ahead - I wouldn't ! )))

- Now Urikor is going to add an online simulator - should be a mighty help to increase speed. On TypingZone there is something like that, isn't it? Have you tried it? What are your impressions?


2. Don't allow yourself make typing mistakes, be hard with yourself about it. That's another good way to increase typing speed. The speed doesn't increase right at the moment, as a straight-away result of disciplining the mistakes. But after some weeks you just feel you can type faster now, opla! ))
- It's only my opinion (many of other participants don't think so). I refer to my experience on English Championship here in March. But my speed in English typing is far from that in Russian.
I had 200-250 CPM for many years. Until December 2005 I didn't make a single movement to improve it. And still, there is no actual need to have more))), I do improvements just so, of interest, because I like typing, and like the English language )))
So my experience here might not matter on a higher level. I think that each skill level possibly has its own "proper techniques" Smile


Sensiblu писал(а):
I would sure like to know how does Gem type 600 cpm almost every round Razz besides the fact he just does it Razz

- So would I )))

/...I feel I can't express more aspects in the English, still I know they do exist Smile /

Yes... there are some people who have predisposition for addictions... Well that's me, one of them.. But I try to get my hold on life Smile I should be in control not others. There are a lot of fast typist on IRC. Too bad I can't bring them all there... If I would be playing trivia this hole place would be swarming with typists Wink) But I can't. I made a promise to myself that I won't enter on IRC to ruin my life and I intend to keep it. I did advertise on 3 forums. I'll try some more in the future when I have the time.
Thanks for all the good advices... I saw that tip (about trying to type songs) on the guy who is second on english text on typingzone. He did that too Smile Well it must be something about it Smile I'll try it. And being hard to myself ... hmm... I'm not that hard to myself.. just that I keep repeating myself that I cand do better. Well yes, technically there is no reason to type faster when you already type fast but there's the competition that keeps me going and my willpower Wink) I won't stop increasing my speed until I'll be the first some day Razz
Hmm.. about the online simulator... what do you mean by that?
I've tried typing zone but it gets pretty boring because there are these 2 permanent contests where the text never change. I've typed them hundreds of times and I guess I've reached somewhat my limits at english text. But I do believe that the speed is not computed correctly. It's smaller than it should be.. I mean I've typed that same text in other programs that allow that and it's always bigger than the one computed by the program. Of course there's the master of the month but it's only for 3-5 days a month and that sure doesn't satisfy my "need for typing" Smile) Besides these.. I like the site Smile (I just love those flags displayed next to each user Wink)

I saw his comment, either. I think many typing people do the same way, not it is of that guy or of me or somebody else's personally. It is something about it, I'm sure.
I didn't it after singers of songs. In the Russian language, I followed some fragments from operas I like and remember exactly, "playing" them in my mind. Those which are rather slow )) . But mostly, I follow real-time speaking at press-conferences, when I am in the very auditorium, or next room to it, or in the translators cabinet.

Sensiblu писал(а):

Well, ambition is mighty Smile
There's ambition, and there's enthusiasm. I think the last is too strong in me - much stronger than the first.
With my ambition being rather strong, though Wink For all my years it has had victories enough (in the Russian language I mean) and could already expected to stop, but somehow it doesn't stop fully as yet )))
I'd like to improve my English typing to the bottom "professional" level of my Russian - about 500 for long time nonstop (maximum registered is 692, but it's in Russian Daily Task - supershort time nonstop 1/3 of a minute))). I would be fantastically happy if I can!

Sensiblu писал(а):
Hmm.. about the online simulator... what do you mean by that?

a-a-a, I don't know exactly what it is called on TypingZone. The ghost ? (призрак)
On this forum, people mentioned it, and I get curious what it is.
I've registered on TypingZone, and hope to collect my own impressions (never use WinXP in Internet, that's an obstacle for now).

Sensiblu писал(а):
I just love those flags displayed next to each user /on TypingZone/

Oh yes, they look great!
And some touch of really patriotic feeling can be a stimul too (never mind people who consider it out-of-contemporary)). I adore seeing "Moscow" here in the Urikor tables Smile

Oh I've guessed you didn't!
It was me who did Smile Spent half an hour on that charming, very short and comfortable-to-type text. It was at night, and I was lucky with the next 24hours coming and the text changed; or else I would spend much more time on it ))))))) Then I typed today's text, several times, but I don't remember my speed, it was in the area of 450 at most, I think.
Not even near 500, of course not! - With real texts, I type English about 350-380 now. (And I'm absolutely glad with the progress, compared to 200-250) Smile

As to punctuation, it's rather worth mastering, though...

692 cool Smile i never typed that fast... I'm pretty constant. I can improve my typing from 400-450 cpm with no more that 100 cpm. I just can't although I practice a lot for those 100 cpm...

Well, I've seen the ghosts but didn't used them too much... although from what I've spoked with some fast typist (Son) he told me that they are pretty good in helping improving your speed on a text. I should get used to them and see for myself Smile

And about the flags.. well I'm sure not a xenophobe or something like that but I tend to extend the competition to country vs country in my mind. It's more thrilling I guess Smile)

Do you mean improving during a session? Then, I suppose, "bottom" and "upper" limits of your skills don't differ much as yet. It will come with many-years-practice, I think Smile
For me (in the Russian), to improve up to 150 cpm during a session is nearly normal. For high records - up to 200 is needed, though! That's rather hard - not for my everyday practice ))))

As I see the directions of work:
= to raise one's level "from top to bottom" - fast typing short texts;
= "from bottom to top" - typing very long texts at a low speed 1-2 hours a day.

Yes I think you are right. So it is with the Big Sports. There certainly should have been some reasoning for the tradition getting that way...

Somebody on the forum has compared Urikor' participants with "Russia Olympic team" - I think everybody felt the joke but it looked splendid nevertheless Smile

super! The link seems important.
If I was the admin I would put your link, and all the branch http://www.tifaq.com/keyboards, in the "Keyboards" section of the Urikor's site. It's a pity all the articles in that section are in the Russian language. - Can't say: go and see Smile.

I put your link into my ФАВТ http://www.liveinternet.ru/users/faq_avtandiline/post15073026/
Thanks Sensiblu. Do you have used any of those sophisticated keyboards? or have seen people typing on them?

For myself, I use standard keyboard because there are several places where I type, and keyboards should be of the same design, more or less. In order to be able to keep high speed. The less do keyboards differ the better.
This simple reason, or rather must Sad , is first-of-all to be considered.

Besides the fact they are pretty expensive.. I never saw anything like it in Romania and probably won't see too soon. There aren't too much people who would use them I guess. I personally used 4 keyboards... Some standard microsoft 101/102 keys.. Didn't like it after I learned touch typing becaues the keys were pressing rather hard. Then I had a multimedia keyboard as a present Smile) but didn't like it too much how the keys were pressed... So I bought an A4Tech A-Shaped keyboard.. That's a pretty cool and very cheap keyboard. The keys press easily and its' supposed to prevent rsi. But I saw 1 week ago something cooler Smile It's a keyboard that pressed like a laptop keyboard. I mean you only have to press a key about half of the press you would do on a normal keyboard... And besides that it's as big as a normal keyboard. I did type on laptop keyboards and I didn't like them because they had the keys very crowded and did a lot of mistakes and I could't hold my hands naturally but this one is just like a normal keyborad and presses like a laptop.. It's some kind of hybrid Smile) But I am very happy with it. It increased my speed by a constant 30 cpm Smile) Not as much as I expected but it's an improvement Smile Well at least it gives me the sensation that I type really really fast when I type on it Smile Guess its because of the short key press and I like that.

Btw.. I also saw some alternative mouse devices on that site with the alternative keyboards... like the one that moves the mouse cursor with your eyemovements.. and clicks when you blink.. pretty cool Smile But they are way too expensive for my budget Sad

Sensiblu, congratulations! It's so very important to have a keyboard that feels the best !

I'm always in search. My old keyboard wasn't THE best, but it was rather good. It was a "no-name" thing, of NAN TAN COMPUTER Co., made in Taiwan. It had been working hard for ~18-20 years, until this winter Sad . I hope I could find something instead. Your info and other (for instance here on the Urikor site - section "Keyboards" and forum) would be very helpful, to fresh my general view on the market possibilities. Thank you for the info!

For now, I just haven't anything of interest to tell on my current keyboards. Except the story of how I got that old one of mine Smile

I've changed it by a person in office whom I taught using PC. (It happened in the early years of PC-office "revolution" in Russia). Both of us were given our PC's, keyboards included, at work, not picked the models to our own liking. (There wasn't even a place where to pick - no IT-shops in this country yet )). He considered his keyboard to be very annoying since it typed at the lightest touch a key. He was really HAPPY to get my "dummy-to-beat, and beat, and beat once more" of a box with buttons! He said: Now I can stay "lying" on it with all my upper body, and happily not a single letter will be typed!
...I wonder what did he need a keyboard for, at all... Wink

The very point of the story is that at the time there was several hundreds of users whom I daily taught how to operate the PC (that was my work), and several hundreds of keyboards, respectively. And step by step I had tried those hundreds before there was a single one really comfortable for me!..

Many of people thought me just a capricious one... But we here do realize what matters, don't we... Reading you have 30% improvement due to the good-for-you keyboard - I can't but be happy about your luck Smile

Oh I think no reason to grieve at all. It might be rather tiresome to control one's own blinking as a device for work Laughing

May be, it is better to map a double eye-blink to a singe mouse click? Wink

If you press the pass button and press the esc key before the script is loaded some nasty errors appear. like startChars null or NoObject... and things like that. In Internet Explorer it only asks me if I want to continue to run scripts on the page but in mozilla firefox with IE tab plugin (10x for telling me about the existence of the IE tab plugin Roman) it asks me if I want to debug or not. And if I choose to debug there's the entire source code visible in plain text Smile Didn't know this... Umm.. I don't know what causes the error... probably the objects don't get created or something like that... ?

I only know that the script is made to use with MS Explorer, and couldn't finction properly in other browsers.

So you have the reason to use Mozilla instead? Not just because of your personal likings, but because there's not a modul needed for comfortably staying with Romania language alphabet or layout, - so you have to quit your usual "working space" to participate in Urikor contest?

If so - yes it's a pity to take something uncomfortable and do excessive steps - to be able to participate at all. (For instance, I must go to Internet cafes to have a chance to type at a maximum speed. - There are no possibilities to do it at my home (some technological problems with my hardware). It's awful but what else can be done, I wonder... Still, I like the contest, so I do what I can under the circumstances). Some participants just HAVE to use MS Explorer for the contest, in spite of what's their usual browser.

No no no Smile You got it wrong. It gives the same nasty error in Internet Explorer too. Just that in Internet explorer there is no "Debug" button on the error message.
I do not have to switch layouts to participate in the contest. I never used the Romanian layout because it's rather tiresome to type with the few extras symbols that the Romanian alphabet has and you can be understood very easily without those characters because it's only ţ î â ă ş which can be typed like normal t i a a s and the words are perfectly understandable (if you know romanian Smile
I didn't quite understand why can't you type from you home? Is there a delay or something? I've experienced a delay of 5-10 characters when I went to a net cafe because they had a rather slow connection and old computers. Don't know which is the problem? Is it the computer or the internet connection?

(I'm afraid I won't be able to tell short, in the English)). Yes there is a vast delay on longer texts (as in Russian Championship "profi" and "usual" league). The cursor gets very slow and after typing several lines I don't have new lines to type (in the bottom of the screen) - the very scrolling stops until the cursor would come to the next line (in the top of the screen))). I have to sit and wait - when the text scrolls one line more. And so forth, line by line ))) The speed gets limited to 300 or like that... - You see, a delay of 5-10 characters would be rather nice )))
On short texts as now in Daily Tasks there's practically no delay.

We discussed it on forum, and it seems like my PC is to blame, yes it is very old (Pentium II) and the main point might be that this PC has some specific (customized to work in Win 3.11, not only in Win 98. - Win 3.11 was needed. And might still be needed).

So all my results in the Russian Championship were made in net cafe. In Moscow, there's a lot of cafes, most of those I went have modern PC and full-speed Internet connection, but the keyboards and furniture to sit - are very-very uncomfortable for fast typing Smile At last, I found one cafe with ONE good keyboard (of all the many keyboards there are at that place!). But often when I come and see - somebody is sitting and having a game on that very machine, and I have to wait - maybe the machine will be free, or maybe not. So all that tends to be rather ugly (tiresome) and takes time. Money wasted, too )).

The very comical point is that now Daily Tasks are made short - but I still can't type from my home at my highest in the Russian! The fact remains, only the reason changed ))))) Now it's my good keyboard that broke and the two other keyboards don't allow me more than 550-620 or so. - The Providence prefers me not to contest Russian at home Smile

In fact I don't take the situation too seriosly. Let it be as it is Smile If I see a really good keyboard to buy - I'll buy it, and this part of the problem will be solved.
My "main" PC (on which I do my essential works - photo and other tasks) - I don't come into Internet on that machine, so as not to get a virus or the PC unexpectedly customized with auto procedures running from some websites.
