Speed Typing Record Attempt
The search for Hawke's Bay 's fastest texter continues. Taradale High School student Lynda Coldicutt from New Zealand broke the one-minute barrier yesterday. In her latest attempt she took one minute and 15 seconds to type out the 160-character message. Lynda typed the 160- message that sets the standard for the Guinness Book of Records in 58 seconds but she is still 10 seconds slower than current world champion Craig Crosbie, 24, a Scottish factory worker, who typed the message in just 48 seconds, earning a place in the Guinness Book of Records. I guess she’ll keep practicing! Easy does it...Not to mention that,uhh, Lynda sent almost 4000 text messages last month. I think I’ll stick with my plan: a SMS a day…to keep the buzz away!
