I suppose a lot of readers of this list do that, if you consider assembly languages.

For other languages: I’ve been maintaining the Cyber1 PLATO system from the start of that project, which involves periodic work in TUTOR.  And I’m working on recovering software for the Electrologica EL-X8 and EL-X1 systems; the former was a particularly good ALGOL system and the latter the host for the first ever ALGOL compiler.

This is fun since ALGOL was the first language I learned, luckily.
