OK, we'll cancel the project of getting you a farm of ultra-durable card 
punches.  :-)
It was already looking as though there might be difficulty locating 2 
million boxes of blank punch cards. (288G)   Per copy.

Even the just over a million 8" SSSD floppies were back-ordered.

And paper tape would have required opening a new factory.

. . . and we'd have had to build up a fleet of station wagons to hurtle 
down the highway.
