Fun On Friday #41: Hit that keyboard!

Apparently, keyboards take the brunt of users irritation with Information and Communication Technology equipment. When a program crashes, or a Google search fails to deliver, it is the keyboard that is most likely to be thumped in frustration!

I am pleased therefore to offer a (vaguely) legitimate excuse for hitting the keyboard. Thanks to the Gadget Show, I was directed to the Press The Spacebar 2000 game. It is a simple, but surprisingly addictive, game. The basic aim is to hit the spacebar as many times as possible in a given time limit.

My personal best is 41 times in 5 seconds.

Not brilliant but not bad. It reminds me a bit of the old Daley Thompson game on the ZX Spectrum where you had to batter away at a couple of keys to make Daley run...I wasn’t very good at that game either. :-)
