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 ...

Cheers, in the end I just switched to Cinnamon. Gnome 3 had loads of other annoying bugs.

The OpenWorm project hits a major milestone in its development, as its simulated life-form now exhibits realistic motion through the firing of digital neurons and contraction of digital muscles.

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
On Emacs 24.3.1 if I M-X load-theme and load another theme, it often interferes with my current theme instead of replacing it, giving a very ugly result colour-wise. An example is here, where the solarized-light and wombat themes are conflicting: I solve this by doing a M-X disable-theme of the old theme, is there a cleaner way to solve this?

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.
