0.95 secs by my third go with it. I'm two years older than
you but I suspect a touch typist would do better I had to
spend time remembering where the appropriate keys
I have my own breathalyser and find it very useful here
in Oz where we have random breath tests. I find my "real"
level of intoxication is not necessarily related to the
breathalyser reading. ie. I have had a reading of 0.04
and have decided not to drive because I _knew_ I
didn't feel sober enough but at other times I have had
a reading of 0.08 and am fine? Maybe it's the type of
drink or my emotional state or the food I ate last??
otoh my partner, who dissipates alcohol very slowly,
I wouldn't allow to drive after 2 glasses of wine! Yet
she shows under the limit on the breathalyser.
