No, it's if you know the difference between an 026 and 029 keypunch.  Bonus points if you know how to do multipunch on a 026 to get parenthesis for a machine that's expecting 029.
If you're a real stud geek, you used a drum card, so you could "tab" to column 7.

I wasn't feeling old until I read that. Next you'll say that the old guys are the ones who have used punched cards and know (well, maybe knew) the different between Fortran 66 and 77.
