I learned how to use punch cards in Air Force procurement in the late 70's;
getting a Burroughs 3500 to talk to a Univac *something* was fun, since both
the hospital and Base Supply had different computers than we did. We were
told we would be on a real microcomputer someday. Our family visited there
in 1989 and they were still using punchcards...

Ah, the wonderfulness of transaction logs!
