How fun! A typing tutor app was the very first program I ever wrote! Back in VB 6 when I was about fourteen!! I then wrote a typing test app that was hosted here on DaniWeb a couple of years ago.
In what way do you not know how to write it? Typing tests typically calculate speed in terms of WPM, which is words per minute. Words are typically an average of say 5 characters. You could also calculate speed in terms of CPM (characters per minute). Then you'll want to subtract points for accuracy.
Well, this member joined only yesterday, so I think they deserve to be greeted with a warm welcome, not to mention that it does bring back memories. They joined just yesterday with only this one post under their belt, so I wanted to balance out the reception they received from just a sarcastic comment to at least a "yay! memories!". Let's see if they respond. If they do, yay! If they don't, it still brought back fond memories for me.
Your point is taken as well, as I don't have confidence they will be back. (Please, Sarbjit, come respond to us! We're talking about you!! Prove us wrong! Please!!) However, it can never hurt to try and be friendly to someone, but it can always potentially hurt to purposefully be unfriendly to someone.
Skin like a rhino - not offended Dani - you're ok. This post strikes me as an example of the sort of thing we were discussing on a community thread recently. We seem to have very different views about them. I won't hijack this thread by raking over it again, but I'll just leave posts I consider shit-tipping for others to intereact with / report as spam / crap / else. I realise I shouldn't care so much :)
