I just completed lesson 1.3. One mistake I initially had was that I passed the consoleWriterActor as a parameter to the consoleReaderActor constructor when it was actually execting a validationActor. The reader actor sent the first string to the writerActor, which gladly wrote the string, but did not tell its sender to continue and the app hung.
