Umm, UC Irvine still uses them for class registrations! Imagine
my surprise when I found an IBM-format card on the sidewalk
here... When I exclaimed the hilarity of them, pretty much
everyone was underwhelmed, 'oh those are just class registration
cards, whassup?' of course having no idea how old the system

(I have CASES of surplus, unused LANL/LASL cards I use for notes,
bookmarks, mixing epoxy... about $1 per thousand, new, 1960's
NOS... the catch is you gotta drive to Los Alamos NM to get 'em)
