Isn’t this great? I bumped into a wonderful site called kloth.net (http://www.kloth.net/services/cardpunch.php) that provides a free-to-all and unrestricted use of their punch card emulator.

Completely distracted from the BINAC quest, I created some cards using some great first lines of literature. You can play too!
