    Ouch! That WAS smelly.

    These are punch cards for inputting the program and data for Babbage’s “Analytical Engine”.

    Two types of punched cards used to program the machine. Foreground: “operational cards”, for inputting instructions; background: “variable cards”, for inputting data.

    These are punch cards used to program the machine (for inputting instructions and data).Used by Charles Babbage.

    Punchcards used in the very first Computer(Analytical Engine) built by Charles Babbage and then continued by his son Henry Babbage. One is for giving instructions and other is for giving data.

    I wonder how AutoRaja would look in punch cards :P
