Attaching a keyboard to a computer is a terrible idea. What are you gonna do, make the computer wait while some slow-ass human types instructions into it?

No. Feed it instructions on punch cards as God and Herman Hollerith intended. And don’t use that stupid paper tape that can only be edited with scissors and tape, either.

And who the hell came up with attaching a CRT to the thing? What are you gonna do, memorize the output? Take a picture? No. Cards go in. Printouts come out.
