published a new blog post today, trying to summarize how Akka.NET actors work for people who are totally new to the actor model: http://petabridge.com/blog/akkadotnet-what-is-an-actor/
anyone have any feedback on it before I try to promote it on Monday?

some minor cosmetics.. the directive is called Stop, not Kill. and the actor lifecycle "Terminated" is the final stage, when it is permanetly dead so the last step is forked to either Terminated or restarting. atleast if we use the internal terminology of akka.

@rogeralsing yeah I had some trouble getting the diagram for that step of the life cycle to fork
@rogeralsing I'll see if I can fix that

@rogeralsing ok cool, updated that image and added a second one showing where all of the lifecycle methods (i.e. PreStart) get called during that process http://petabridge.com/blog/akkadotnet-what-is-an-actor/
I think @skotzko is working on fixing the formatting of the code samples - for some reason embedded gists look really weird on this layout
