Punch card

At year 1984 when I joined State Computer Center of Finland, punch
cards were gone. They were made by this huge typewriter
kind of thing and you did not want to mix the order when ready. Each
card represented one 80 character line. On mainframes, we use EBCDIC
characters that are coded differently than ASCII used on most of the
machines today. Today mainframes understand ASCII too.
