"We didn't call it fuzzing back in the 1950s, but it was our standard practice to test programs by inputting decks of punch cards taken from the trash.
We also used decks of random number punch cards. We weren't networked in those days, so we weren't much worried about security, but our random/trash decks often turned up undesirable behavior.
Every programmer I knew used the trash-deck technique."

Then it went back and steelmanned the case for using the older versions.
I would like to show it to a Junior Dev on my team. But I can’t find it again. Ring any bells for anyone?
