Blast from the Past

I bet no one under 30 years old has ever seen these things. Last week we were cleaning up old computer documents and the sheets were too wide for the shredder so we had to rip all the edges off the paper. What fun. Remember paper with tracks on them? Yuck.

Oh my, those printers were so cumbersome!!!

Certainly do remember those folded sheets of paper. Anybody remember punch cards made by typing on a special machine? A technician would feed a pile of them into a HUGE reader and then a printer would spit out your program.

That's amazing that you should post about this old tracked paper because I went to my auto mechanic yesterday to get some work done (winter tires, etc.) and he printed out the statement of work for me on an ancient printer with this kind of paper. I was amused when he had to tear off the punched strips. But he says it still works!
