The original Julia goal was to have the speed of C and the simplicity of Python. To what extent have these goals been achieved, in your opinion?

My guess is that like with other languages - and most software - the newer features will expose the innards of Julia more and more.

What if your name were changed to Lick Neeson?

Would you feel closer to Liam Nielsen?

If you see this, what are your thoughts on these unsolicited suggestions?

1) At least one building should be left to its old-timey state. This will make people appreciate the sheer difference of luxury and the efforts a typical business goes to to provide comforts. Plus it can be a starting point for conversations - leading to merchandise sail sale from those periods

2) Try reverse psychology in terms of tourism marketing.

Quietly (= low budget) market it as a place for writers, artists, for people recovering (from tragedies, rehab, whatever). Skip the regular-tourist advertising 100%

3) Look into hydroponics

1) Fantastic

2) Maybe vibe a 'for regular joe rather than executives' indirectly into the marketing-writes .... to make sure young execs drop in! .... But maybe I am now over-thinking

3) Hydroponics basically is agriculture under a greenhouse, replacing soil / sunlight, etc. with their technological equivalents (Coco peat, special lights that mimic sunlight wavelengths, etc.). I am a software engineer btw so this is not a self-promo stuff

This means the set-up cost is high (=Cons), so you generally go with high value crops only == Bye potatoes; hello strawberries / cranberries / micro-greens.

Pros: Needs only 5 to 10% water compared to open field agriculture; yield is typically 10 times of open field; a decent hydroponic setup will last 25 years; production is pretty much throughout the year - unless for example the heating costs are so high when it snows that it makes more sense to shutdown production in winter.

Does need a hydroponic engineer which are not easy to find

Alternatively, you can ditch hydroponics and replace it with a home-wine-brew alternative at the rooms
