Thread: When is Paris not a wonderful French city?

Someone out there knows the answer to this riddle. I've been doing code groups with character speed and effective speed both set at 20 wpm. I just noticed a box to check that says "Use real speed, not Paris."

So what is Paris? When the box is checked the letters flow by more quickly. I think I saw something indicating that with Paris, my 20 + 20 is actually 15 wpm. Is it that in Paris, when you drink absinthe, CW seems to move more slowly?

paris is a standar word. When you sent plain english text with 20 wpm, the speed is the same as 20 words paris per minute.

When you sent random character code groups, the average character takes more time 20 codegroups of 5 characters per minute is not equal to 20 times paris but to 20 times codex

More dits and dahs so you have to speed up to about 25 wpm plain text (paris) speed to transmit 20 codegroups in one minute

Thank you for the explanation.
