@Aaronontheweb Ah okay :) Now on topic for real: in Unit 2 the chart does crash sometimes
anyone else is experiencing this?
I get null pointers on:
            var series = _seriesIndex[metric.Series];
            series.Points.AddXY(xPosCounter++, metric.CounterValue);
Points is null sometimes, im not able to reproduce it with some basic steps
this is in: ChartingActor.cs

@GerjanOnline I haven't seen that one personally - could you post the full stacktrace? which one of those objects is "null" when the exception occurs?
@thomaslazar hi Thomas! the lessons get emailed every day, including the weekends - let us know if you run into any issues!
@/all did an interview with Scott Hanselman about Akka.NET this week - just went live today: http://hanselminutes.com/472/inside-the-akkanet-open-source-project-and-the-actor-model-with-aaron-stannard

Aaronontheweb: listened to that podcast this morning. was the reason i looked around again for stuff about akka.net
i just wish there the bootcamp lessons would not be throttled to one per day :P

Good day! After signing up I received an "Intro to Unit 1" email with a link to Unit-1.zip (https://www.dropbox.com/s/g6ug6ubaplufebi/Unit-1.zip ) . The subsequent "Lesson 1.1: Actors and the ActorSystem" email contains references to https://github.com/petabridge/akka-bootcamp/tree/master/src/Unit-1 subfolders that are not found in the Unit-1.zip. Actually, the archive contains the contents of https://github.com/petabridge/akka-bootcamp/tree/master/src/Unit-1/DoThis folder (i.e no sign of readmes or Completed lessons folders). I don't know whether stripped-down archive was intentional or just an oversight - I'll just stick to GitHub readme-s from now on.
