- I had a few questions at VCF about something called a "lace card".
Here's one I made up this morning:
It's simply a card with ALL the holes punched. It's very flimsy, and
guaranteed to jam a card reader. According to stories, you could sabotage
a user's job by covertly inserting it into his card deck.
It's not recommended to try to duplicate these on the keypunch, either.

Thank you for checking. Do you have any information about the original COSMAC 1801 computer? This as far as I can tell was the first computer-ish device based on the COSMAC processor.

Mother donated all of Dad's papers and prototypes to the David Sarnoff Library, so I only have a few things related to the programs I wrote and sold to RCA for the VIP and Studio II.Try e-mailing again at this address (minmax_3512@...). I'd be happy to correspond with you.Joyce
