Bill Gates and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen haven’t always been on the best of terms, but it looks the the relationship has been mended enough to recreate a classic photo at a recent event.

Allen tweeted out the pic featuring himself and Gates clothed appropriately, amidst old-school computers.

Here’s the iconic photo from 1981, for comparison.

The two were attending an event hosted by Allen at Allen’s Living Computer Museum in Seattle. The event was a reunion of sorts, with many early computing and tech pioneers in attendance. According to GeekWire, the staff worked to acquire the same old-school computer models to recreate the photo beforehand.

Pretty cool, huh?
