This is the philosophy I got today from the boss. I'm not quite sure what to say.

A long time ago in a computer room far, far away I got used to using an 029 keypunch for making "IBM" cards. I even became pretty good at hacking the program drum with a card to specify the fields for various kinds of data. If your boss really needs to, I'll bet that a web search could find him a working 029 and a box or two of blank cards. He could get used to it.

THUNK. THUNK THUNK. THUNK. THUNK THUNK THUNK. THUNK. SH*T. Rip! Try again.
