A shoebox of punch cards with my Fortran programs on them. The output was printed on paper with green and white bars. What do I win?


The epithets of "venerable" and "inscrutable", certainly.


don't drop the box (or at least configure the punch machine to print sequence numbers)


Vivid memory of my boss putting a box of punched cards on top of his car to drive to a customer and forgetting to put them in the car. First turn cards flew off, still ribbed him about it for years


Nice - I experienced the 3 week run/debug cycle for a year or so while still in school, then the Maths dept got a Pet - also welcome to dev.to :)
