sorry for all the dumb PR's :)
I'm still trying to work out how to contribute
the latest one (#23) should be OK - I had rebased against master so some non F# changes got pulled in...

looks great @john-azariah-cba
@Aaronontheweb @skotzko can you please review the lesson 1.1 readme and tell us what you think? (PR 23 by @john-azariah-cba)

sure thing, taking a look at the diff now
one quick thought, as I'm going through some of your READMEs
did you know that pygments supports F#? http://pygments.org/languages/
this means that in markdown you can get syntax highlighting for all of your code samples
```fsharp
grrr
let x = foo
like that

so are you going to merge the PR? I'll work only with reference to the FSharp branch now
and maybe to do a rebase from master every so often just so we don't go out of sync!
Aaron Stannard
@Aaronontheweb
Feb 26 2015 01:02
haha, yes I will merge that PR once you've added the ```fsharp syntax highlighting
that's a good idea, I'll do a clean rebase every now and then

Working on lesson 1.5: Using ActorSelection() on Mono/OSX does not work for me. Bummer :-( Instead messages are routed to a dead letter actor. Any help on this?
I'd love to continue the bootcamp under OSX instead of Win.

@ralfw that's a bummer - one of our friends who's done it on Mono might have a workaround for that
btw Akka.NET is trying to actively recruit some Mono contributors - we need some help making sure that Akka and Helios (the socket server that powers all of the remoting stuff) run well on Mono distributions

Hope so. Since it seems a core feature.

@Aaronontheweb btw. what is the issue at hand here? there is no remoting involved in this specific case, right?
Aaron Stannard
@Aaronontheweb
Feb 26 2015 17:40
@rogeralsing just ActorSelection
Ralf Westphal
@ralfw
Feb 26 2015 17:58
@Aaronontheweb Interestingly ActorSelection works with mono 3.12 on Windows. Not, though, on OSX with mono 3.12. Maybe this helps to spot the bug.

hey @jorgef - have a favor to ask if you're around
Jorge Fioranelli
@jorgef
Feb 26 2015 21:47
@Aaronontheweb tell me
Jorge Fioranelli
@jorgef
Feb 26 2015 22:25
@Aaronontheweb @skotzko guys be aware that the FSharp branch has a different folder structure, now we have Unit-X/CSharp and Unit-X/Fsharp
Aaron Stannard
@Aaronontheweb
Feb 26 2015 22:25
yeah, we'll have to update some of the top-level READMEs before we integrate into master
Jorge Fioranelli
@jorgef
Feb 26 2015 22:26
@Aaronontheweb and have that in mind when synchronising the branches, I can a DoThis folder in the wrong place here: https://github.com/petabridge/akka-bootcamp/tree/FSharp/src/Unit-1
*I can see a DoThis folder
I think it was part of John's PR...
Aaron Stannard
@Aaronontheweb
Feb 26 2015 22:28
no worries - we'll be pretty thorough before anything gets published to master
Jorge Fioranelli
