Honestly @nvivo I think that if the default dispatcher is properly optimized. The list of scenario's of wanting to implement your own is very small.
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
I agree
Arjen Smits
@Danthar
And thats besides the fact that implementing your own dispatcher if fraught with all kinds of subtleties
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
just so you understand, I'm rewriting the docs to be more "human readable"
Arjen Smits
@Danthar
Yes i know :) been lurking here for days, Just heaven't been very active due to.. stuff
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
currently, if you go to the Dispatchers docs, you can read the entire thing and there is nothing there saying what it actually does and why you should change that
Bartosz Sypytkowski
@Horusiath
I've already proposes an experiment for custom dispatcher built on top of Hopac to see, if there is a possible performance gain
Arjen Smits
@Danthar
iv'e been eyeing the DI examples doc as well. That could use some love.
Hopac. yeah that should be interesting
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
the official akka doc is more like "integers: we implemented using a custom machine architecture where bits are randomly swapped bla bla bla " - when they could just said "they are numbers"
you don't notice after some time. but for people learning, it's a lot of words that don't mean a lot
Bartosz Sypytkowski
@Horusiath
I mean a lot, when you have to deep dive into internals or have some problem
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
all I got from the docs is "it's the engine that makes akka tick".. all the rest I'm going through the source
yep, exactly
I agree they are useful. but it's not what akka.net needs to attract new people
I tried to explain akka.net to some friends, they have a lot of questions that I only know because I'm here everyday and reading the issues and going through the source. it's not a good path for everyone
Arjen Smits
@Danthar
Yup. And not everything is updated for 1.0 yet. Or so it seems. Sometimes hard to judge, other than the fact stuff could be more clear.
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
writing code is easy. it's much harder to document it =)
Arjen Smits
@Danthar
heh, they respond with 'thats very interesting' and leave it at that :P
they deal with very different problems than me :P
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
my wife calls me the king of nerds, and I come here and I see I'm not half of what it takes to code some of this stuff haha
you guys win hands down
Arjen Smits
@Danthar
I know the feeling. In the land of the blind, the man who can see is king
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
:-p
Arjen Smits
@Danthar
And the fact that this profession has an huge amount of interest areas

I have been playing around trying to find a good way to do stateful actors in a hierarchy. After talking with @Aaronontheweb that HashPooling was not a good idea so I came up with a sample project. Besides adding become logic I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or criticism on how to model this using Akka.
I was going to combine some of the ideas with what @rogeralsing posted in his blog. Anything anyone would like to share is welcome.
Arjen Smits
@Danthar
Any known issues with Akka running on .Net 4 ?
Roger Johansson
@rogeralsing
Dont think anyone have tried tbh
Arjen Smits
@Danthar
yeah me either
when I start thinking about it. There might be some TPL stuff
and there would be some minor perf issues in places where the concurrent collections are used. Those where horrible in perf in .Net 4
meh horrible is a bit much. But they weren't great.
Arjen Smits
@Danthar
Do you guys make .Net 4 builds ?
ah, nuget says nope.
So in short: No known issues, but its not officially supported.
ugh! I hate this: https://skillsmatter.com/skillscasts/4081-greg-young-4081 "Because of its privacy settings: This video cannot be played here"

@Danthar
@nvivo the new routing docs are great. But could use some extension on what resizers are and how they work.
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
@Danthar, I'll take a look at that. Thanks
Arjen Smits
@Danthar
@rogeralsing question. About DI and scopes. Currently the docs say that Actors must not have the singleton scope, since its not supported
However, that implies that other scope types are supported. But I think thats wrong, because as far as i understand it
only the transient scope is supported.
Due to how Akka works with location transparency and the lifetime of actors
but i could be wrong :P so im asking ;)
Roger Johansson
@rogeralsing
You can still remotedeploy DI actors, the DI will occur on the remote system as the DI support is based on actor producers
Assuming the correct config exists on the remote system that is
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
@rogeralsing so DI shouldn't affect remoting or clustering?
Arjen Smits
@Danthar
@rogeralsing Ah I remember reading about that. But that is not what I was referring to.
