I outgeek you all! It's 10 because computers count from zero, not from one.
The first = 00
Second = 01
Third = 10
Yeah, I'll let you keep the punchcards :P. My first programs were stored on cassette tape. So, I'm old enough to know vinyl and tape but not old enough to worry about card stacks. I have, however, used a slide rule before, when a teacher said that electronic calculators weren't allowed in her classroom.
I'm told that London Computer Museum built a working difference engine based on Babbage's original designs, so those old punchcard skills may still come in handy for you soon.
Edit: A little research tells me that it's Babbage's original machine that's on display in London. The recently-built working model is in Mountain View, CA. Oddly enough, that's where Google is headquartered.

Oh well, I've now got pretty much the same math programs on my desk and lap top computers that once required a Cray to compute. The only punch cards I still have are now in my bank vault box.

I'm not responsible for offending people -- people are responsible for themselves taking offense at me
