I have only three complete PCs. The rest of the parts are held in boxes. Stored for the future :) I dont have a museum, yet :D
Well, just got home from work, I am the new boss. My new manager quit, like the little punk-ass would, by just turning in his keys and walking away. He supposedly has a new job running a fork lift! Seriously? He will be begging for his job back, in 2 weeks. Guaranteed! But, he won't get it back, because why? 3 guesses why. He thinks he is screwing the DM, he's screwing himself!

Hello,

I noticed that you built an AMD Ryzen 1950X based workstation for analysing nanopore data. I'm thinking of doing the same for a cancer genomics unit at a hospital in London (we are going to be using the nanopore to develop various genomic diagnostic tests). I was wondering: have you had any experiences where bioinformatics software could not be run on the AMD chips?

Thank you.
