I'm having some problems switching between emacs themes, I'm quite surprised how hard this is(!!): https://stackoverflow.com/questions/22866733/emacs-disable-theme-after-loading-a-different-one-themes-conflict?noredirect=1#comment34887344_22866733

Fact correction: Sony and Samsung did not build their OS from scratch. The Sony OS is MicroC/OS-II and Tizen is open source and based on Linux (just like Android).

Short-term plasticity (STP) (Stevens 95, Markram 96, Abbott 97, Zucker 02, Abbott 04), also called dynamical synapses, refers to a phenomenon in which synaptic efficacy changes over time in a way that reflects the history of presynaptic activity. Two types of STP, with opposite effects on ...

I am posting this because I think it is my duty as a topic expert in version-control systems and the surrounding tools to do so, not because I have any desire to be in the argument that is certain to ensue. The bzr version control system is dying; by most measures it is already moribund.

Rather nice place. The house wine was surprisingly good too. The antipasti were very nice and I really enjoyed the pork.
