Hope this helps.

Post that link you are talking about if you get a chance. It would be helpful for those interested...

I have my Storm's Tap Interval set to 100, Hover Period set to 1000 and Swipe Sensitivity set to (High) 6. I found setting the Hover Period too low makes it select the key too fast.

Wow, I had no idea how much this would help! I was getting used to the default settings so I was cautious to change them and mess up my flow, ya know? Anyways these settings are exponentially better! GREAT find!

Yes, what is it with this? I did it once, and it worked. Now.... when i hit options it literally does nothing.

What's up with that?!

I like the 100/100/6/fast setting best. It meets my personal needs.
