You know, those are probably not really useful anyway. In today’s technologically advanced world, we always have a cheaper alternative:
Perhaps MBA courses’ biggest business success is shown by how they can wrap a book’s material in a year’s courses that costs thousands 😀
Today I bumped into this very addictive game called TypeRacer. A picture says is all:
At first I thought “Oh it’s just another Flash game, I’ll give it a try because I like typing”, then volia! It’s not your ordinary everyday Flash game. For a Web-based game, it offers a complete feature set and a smooth experience of that of a real, installed game!
The random matching process is as smooth as it can be – just clikc “Race against others” and you’ll find yourself typing away in seconds! Simply click “race again” after a race and you’ll be instantly matched against other players. The time I tried, there were enough players on the server that I never had to wait for more than 10 seconds to be matched against other players.
They also have a “Invite friends” features where you can open a private room for invited friends only. That can be done by simplying sending the URL to your friend, and they can instantly start playing – no forced registration, no nothing – that’s what you call fun!
Talking about the registration, the sign up process was really smooth. First off, you don’t have to go through a clumsy registration process to start playing. Anyone can play as Guest, and if they find that they want to keep their records, just click on Sign up which only required you to fill in the username and password – all in an AJAX box that required 0 page reloads.
Give it a try, my hats off to the developer (Yeah I heard it’s a one-man project.) Great job!
Stare at the black cross below. You’ll see the purple dots start to disappear! You’ve got to stare at it pretty hard for this trick to work. Probably about 30 seconds to a minute.
