I can confirm.

Without asking, we don’t know. The machine is advertised as has been running before, and 10 disks are included. The seller was writing me he has no idea about AS/400, and the guy who serviced it is no longer available. So I guess, nothing has been deleted so far. Even if there are no paper based lickeys to be obtained, they are still in the system.

I guess, 120 kg or more. A lot of steel.

:wq! PoC
