I often found my decks 'shuffled'
Which was the reason for the diagonal stripe on the top of the card deck. . . At my first place, this was also know as floor-sorting ('cause sometimes an entire tray or 2 of cards got tipped over) icon_confused.gif

We didn't know how to use a terminal (and they were shared, as well).
Terminal - we didn' have no steenkin terminal.

My "program" came back with every 2 a Z and every Z a 2.
Remember the black/red automatic pencils (black on one end, red on the other)? Not only did things get mis-keyed, but it took much longer to write carefully than if one keyed their own . . .

Those were the days. . . Maybe not icon_wink.gif
