    I remember going to Modena for the first time and only then realizing it was sandwiched between Parma and Bologna.

      Ugh, that was suitably terrible. Have some upvotes.

    AMD just reported its Q3 results: [url<]http://ir.amd.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=74093&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=2310889[/url<] TL;DR version: $71 Million in GAAP Net-income so they got an actual profit this time around. Pretty much in-line with expectations on the street so not unexpectedly high or low. Incidentally, in more detail, the profit was practically all from Ryzen + Coin-mining craze demand. The "Enterprise & Embedded" unit that sells console chips and (more importantly) the Epyc server parts was basically flat from last year: "Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment revenue was $824 million, approximately flat year-over-year primarily driven by lower semi-custom SoC sales, mostly offset by IP related and EPYCTM processor revenue."
