Actually, two RP06 and one RP07 ran on Magica (one of our 11/70) a
little more than 10 years ago.
AIDA (2060) ran with one RP07 and three RP06 until 19 years ago.
CARMEN (2060) ran with one RP07 and one RP06 until 15 years ago.
All the hardware is still around, but only the 11/70 sees some action
these days, and then with RA90 disks (as you know ;-) ).
I would think that the disk drives and packs are still fine, but we
should probably be a bit careful when/if starting them up.
