Looking at my score, I'm about the same as an average typist, with one big difference - I'm not a touch typist. :) I do have some touch typing background, but I find that I'd make less mistakes if I sneak a couple of glances at the keyboard every now and then. Maybe it's time to refresh my muscle memory. :)
Online .htaccess EditorIf you've got a server and run Apache on it (a high probability), chances are you've messed about with .htaccess. Unless you happen to love the .htaccess file with a passion, you probably can't remember how the .htaccess works or what it contains. Even if all the different HTTP status codes are imprinted in your brain, .htaccess Editor can save you a whole lot of time and effort. By segregating the features into various categories, .htaccess Editor allows you to configure each one at a time so you're not overwhelmed by all the options available. When you're satisfied, copy and paste the resulting text into your .htaccess file and bookmark the site so you don't have to type it out the next time.
Gotta improve my typing skills!
