the How Dextrous Are You Quiz doesn't work in Safari 1.0 on Mac OS X ...

Appears that it doesn't use a good CSS stylesheet... or bad HTML...

Maybe I'll try it in IE 5.2, instead...

and --


I did it in 0</big></b> seconds.
I deserved a D!!
Take the How Dexterous Are You? Quiz!!

this is not a test of dextrousness, it's a test of how fast you figure out which key goes in the direction you want, and act on that basis, rather than using them as labeled... makes a significant difference whether you're using a standard keyboard, with the full-size arrow keys, or using a laptop keyboard, with oddly shaped and/or oriented arrow keys, also....

trying once more...

and even better.

first time, I was figuring out how it worked.

second time, I got there -- but my display apparently doesn't match the regions the designer intended (different fonts or ghod knows what on my Mac), so though I got the ball in the goal, it didn't register -- so again, I got a D

making things like this platform-specific really bugs me... it could have been done in Flash, and been entirely cross-platform, with virtually identical appearance....
