Oh, come on.  Surely, I cannot be the only one here who's been using
punch cards?  Rhetorical question really; I know of one other at
least, that I gratuitously insulted a while back in the thread.  That
was in my student days.  We got really good with those card punches.
There was a minor competition going on, trying to squeeze the most
labour saving tricks into those control cards.

Someone is going to bring up clay tables next.
