Judging from the requests I got this morning, looks like this has started. +Coinbase, what are the next steps?

I admit, I never really thought of the #Lua   VM as a compilation target. Now that I am looking at MoonScript, it kinda makes some interesting sense.

I have no problem with compiling to lua, I've seen some interesting articles about compiling C to lua, and it being of comparable speed.

However the syntax of MoonScript does not look like an improvement to me.

Given it's apparently inspired by CoffeeScript, I can see why it would come about, but CoffeeScript exists because JavaScript is not nice.
To me, Lua is already nice.

A legacy can be many things. I view people as the main tool in my management tool box, and so I want my legacy to be the people that inherit the organization after I am gone. Leaders that understand this list is just the starting point to teaching others how to embrace and execute their own legacy.

This is more of a full hotel review. Oh my god, the view of Basilica Notre Dame of the Garde is worth just visiting the hotel. The staff felt a little dry in English, but energized in french -- I attribute that to being a foreigner, as many of the other guests seemed to speak fluent French. The pool was wonderful, albeit hard to find (hint, it is located inside the Clarins spa). The waterfall and jets are a nice touch. I didn't get to experience the spa treatment, so i cannot comment on that. I had no problems with the restaurant or bar. My old fashion was served promptly, and the wine was courtesly handled. The food was exceptional, and the service attentive. It was French service, so expect some waits. The largest suprise of the restaurant was the kids' menu: It was perfect. The staff even suggested ordering my son's meal first, to accommodate his lack of patience when he is hungry. The kids meal was on par with the adult menu, and he loved the desserts. It was wonderful to find something so kid friendly in such an upscale dining experience. The room is spacious and large. It appears to be a well done renovation. The bathroom is awesome. Overall, if you have a reason to visit Marseille, I recommend the Intercontinental. If you don't need a hotel, I would still recommend the restaurant attached.

Excellent and enjoyable. The food was good. The cocktails were spot on. The banana gratin was exceptional. The noise level was a bit loud, but the energy was spot on. I recommend reservations if you desire a table.

I have been three times. It is a cheap haircut. The shop is very old fashioned. Its the kind of place you expect to see in olden-American movies. The barbers are nice, and if your hair is simple, they can handle it.

Excellent meal. The restaurant is very casual. The food was delicious. The service was attentive. The hot rolls were delicious. It wasn't heavy sauce French; Much more on the Moroccan and Mediterranean side of things.
