I've never used a coding pad

Not even at university, where I used to write my programs on a quarter of a piece of green lined paper. In pencil; in case I had to rub the code out or change indentation.
There was no way I could write big enough letters to fill in the empty blocks on a coding pad.

When I first started permanently, there was about one terminal to three programmers but I could type fast enough that I didn't need to send my code away to be punched in by the data input staff.
