I am seriously the most spoiled person ever. I feel slightly guilty about this fact. Good grief! I've always wanted a supercomputer. James let me put in the parts. He and John worked on screwing all the screws. My beautiful new computer will be christened "Deep Thought" after the computer in Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the computer made to compute the Answer to life, the universe and everything. However, my nickname for it is "Beast," because, obviously, it is a beast.
The only thing it has left to download on it is Office, the full version of AVG and Malewarebytes. It has Windows 7, ImageJ, Adobe, Dropbox, and is currently in the process of downloading ChemBio Draw, Star Wars the Old Republic and Pymol. I bought Pymol about two months ago.
I had to really clean up my desk space which was full to the brim with papers and mail. I ignore mail by habit. I had to go through about a year's worth. It wasn't that bad. I threw most of it away without looking at it, because it was so old and outdated. I organized the rest in a cabinet file system I had setup earlier. In my position, I feel as if I have to choose to ignore some mess. The desk was neglected for some time. Now it has a reason to be used.
Here is the building process! I was quite overjoyed, delighted and amazed with the construction and the computer, with comments.
