I love it when I find bookmarks in these old books

@leeb This happened to me once! I found a punch card from an old Australian government computer research centre in a book at my university's library when I was an undergrad. With some Googling I found the email address of somebody who used to work there and sent them a scan of it. They were able to tell me about the machine it would have been used for, and had lots of interesting stories about early computing down under in general.

@leeb Do you think the server might be there to log in to still?

@AskChip Heh, yeah... 1986 mainframe? Probably not 😃
