@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:

Good day! After signing up I received an "Intro to Unit 1" email with a link to ( ) . The subsequent "Lesson 1.1: Actors and the ActorSystem" email contains references to subfolders that are not found in the Actually, the archive contains the contents of 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.
