More work on the #Amiga watch. Now it tells the time and date! Next to add an appropriate watch face!

@mansr @geert AMD recommends a minimum of four DIMMs, which seems reasonable for 16 cores.
The memory prices I see are not too different for 16GB vs 32GB modules.
I'd rather use four slightly lower frequency module than two DDR4-3200 modules. Going to eight modules would be even better, but it helps to leave room for upgrades.

The COVID-19 tracking app in Singapore is released by the government as Free Software under GPLv3. I am not saying I support such apps. However, it speaks of great wisdom that they release it in source, under copyleft. tech.gov.sg/media/technews/six
