Type them in? I remember punching them in on Hollerith cards.
Dropped a pile of them once.
That motivated me to have the punch card machine to put sequence
numbers on the cards so that they could be resorted again.
I've still got a collection of punch cards dotted around the place, we
used them as book marks for many years. Every now and then I'll find
one, when I pull a book out of the shelves.
Though ours weren't really "punch" cards, they're the ones you colour
bubbles with a lead pencil, rather than punch out a hole.
