Six degrees of Obsolescence, or, Why I love the Internet, part 951:

On Sunday 7/21, I posted to 4 lists I subscribe to a plea for old computer punchcards to use to decorate the interior of my artcar. I asked that people forward my mail to anyone who might be able to help.

On Monday 7/22/02, I got this resonse from someone I don't know, who doesn't appear to be on any of the 4 lists:

You need punchcards, I am told?
You need anything particular punched in them?
We still have a reader-punch running here, a couple keypunches, etc.

On Friday 7/26/02, I checked my PO box, and lookie look:

Internet, I love you! You may not be able to tell from the photo, but the cards are unpunched blanks. My benefactor also included a few sheets of a FORTRAN data coding form (Revised march 1969).

The other thing you may be able to see in the photo is my horribly sunburned shoulder from my Art Car Campout Weekend. I will write that up tomorrow, but just so others can benefit from my mistake:

Either get Waterproof Sunscreen , or remember to re-apply it after swimming, dumb-ass.
