    Mine's pretty good considering I only use two fingers.
    If I used all of them I'd be dynamite!

    Speed is not important - well it is if you bu$$er up a DNS server and need to unbu$$er it up quickly!

    Hmm ... i wonder if it'd be worth putting typing speed on a CV ... more importantly where the hell would you.

    If you were going for a Data Entry job, or some mundane office job I would stick it on. But I really don't think it would look anything but odd on a CV you were submitting for a tech job.

    Any techy who's been at it for a while is gonna be fairly fast at typing just through exposure to it for so long.

    Even if you haven't been in the game long, I'd rather have a slow typing tech who knew their stuff than a fast typing one who didn't ... (not implying you're the latter btw :) )

    as mentioned above its really not important for a tech job, or as sandy says, it can be ;)
    the important fact is also error%, its all good typin 200 wpm but if your error % is over 10 your likely to make alot of typos, in alot of files that dont work well with typos! :D
    so as long as you can check all your mistakes then thats good, but most people cant, and its real easy to miss a syntax error in a 3 page config file!

    never been asked my typing speed in almost 10 years, so guess its really not that important to us techs

    I actually scored 60 wpm in a proper exam two years ago (got a certificate to prove it too - should I put that in my profile? :rolleyes: ) Mind you, that exam was in a ten minute burst with hardly any numbers (my weakest when it comes to touch typing). I should think now, and in a reasonable working situation, I probably average about 50ish... with a back wind... :fart
