that's fantastic. I got extremely excited. Downloaded, and tried immediately. Though, i'll have to say it's quite disappointing. The hitting return for each word is pretty bad. I think instead of following 〈Typing Of The Dead〉, it'd be much better if just do normal sentences

if following 〈Typing Of The Dead〉, i think one thing essential is to have the words drop down.

though, kudos to Alex Schroeder for creating it.

here's some more thoughts
