In this photo taken Oct. 30, 2012, a floppy disk drive, left, and a cassette tape data drive for a Commodore 64 personal computer are shown, at the Living Computer Museum in Seattle.

But Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has just opened the Living Computer Museum, with displays of old machines _ all in working order _ along with a geeky wish list of items he’d like to add, just in case anybody out there has an old tape drive or supercomputer sitting around.
