Line writing - last key pressed time (or similar)  




I recently came across this line writing web site:

It gives a very different experience to the program's line writing test punishments as there is a word per a minute target so you can't sit there very slowly typing it out. 

Whilst it would be amazing VM replicated that, something simpler something to stop the sub from getting distracted whilst on the task would be an improvement. I am thinking something like a timer for the last key press and if nothing has been entered in some number of seconds then it aborts the task.

I had a quick look over and couldn't see an obvious way of achieving this. I was reluctant to do max time as it is hard to say how many lines need to be completed and how long that it might take.

Hi SubParProgrammer,

The way I have designed the line writing is to resemblish writing on paper as much as possible. However, I have sometimes myself thought that maybe there should be a limit to the pauses allowed.

I will take a look at see what I can do.
