New York City Power Shortage Interrups Guinness World Record For Typing


When a power shortage occurred along Lexington Avenue in New York City on June 27, 2007 actor Norman Perez of Burbank, California had to turn to his laptop computer in order to maintain the first Guinness Record for continuous computer keyboard typing.

Perez chose to set the record when businessman Keith Phillips saw him in a Burbank California coffee shop e-mailing his personal manager Tami Lynn (personal manager for Christina Applegate for 25 years).

Phillips challenged Perez by saying I bet you cant do that for a few days? Perez replied I bet I can. The challenge was on.

During the past 61 hours of continuous computer keyboard typing Perez has encountered hackers trying to shut him down and people attempting to gain access to his password. Zahid Razack a New York City computer technician has been able to fend off the hackers and people trying to gain access to the password.

To add comfort to the typing journey Los Angeles inventor Bill Barth provided Perez with Letscrol - The Keyboard Assistant. The device allows Perez to type for long periods without physical stress.
