Although macrophages also attacked blood cells expressing CD47 when mice were given the antibody, the researchers found that the decrease in blood cells was short-lived; the animals turned up production of new blood cells to replace those they lost from the treatment, the team reports online today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

I have evaluated a few frameworks for the Multicraft control panel ( and in the end decided to stick with Yii. It's an elegant and easy to set up framework that lets you get something functional done in a very short time. Also, I haven't had a single Yii related issue with the multitude of webservers and operating systems the Multicraft panel is already running on. I enjoy working with Yii and will start using it for other projects as well: (I'm not affiliated with them in any way)

Minecraft is the game, the control panel is called Multicraft. It's a PHP application with a backend written in Python so yes, you need a webserver. It's up to you what kind of webserver you run. It works fine with Apache, Apache2, Lighthttpd, Nginx, IIS and most likely any other webserver with PHP support. For Windows users there is a package that comes bundled with a standalone version of Nginx so they get a much requested one-click solution. It's used by a lot of hosting providers because it allows easy mass deployment of Minecraft servers, but it works just fine for individual use (and it's free for that purpose).

User hostile.
