You had keys!!!

I had to punch the holes directly into the cards.  I can't understand all the fuss about a return key...  All you had to do was throw in a new card.

    Macs have always had a Return key, and so did many glass TTYs, including the Televideo models that I once used:

  Gosh... I remember those things, and Lear Siegler too...
  You had a return key!!! ... I had to use Control M and Control J...
  You had Control M and Control J, I had to use Baudot, they didn't have a control key...
  But at least Baudot had a shift key...
