slightly crazed .net junkie.

Developer since 2000. Consciously decided to go the MS route due to their tooling.

fairly serious guitarist (7 years or so - currently learning lots of old blues, Howling wolf etc) and am increasingly spending time getting back into Go.

Current specialisms: SQL, EF40 + T4, WCF, linq, lambda, silverlight4, moq, pex, moles - anything needed to get the job done really.

comment How can a parent actor track status of a sub tasks performed by child actors
well i am bitter whenever i try and answer something on here. Its not you its the community. I spent most of my time on here trying to reopen and edit questions so they can get useful answers. When you do answer you get downvoted with no explanations. If i helped you im happy, thats all that matters.

@easuter crazy isn't it. I think the moral is don't go near or post questions with a c# tag ... If its a dupe question then imo linking to another question is entirely appropriate especially if you do not have flag privileges. I kind of stopped helping people on here. Amusing observation - the linked question is one i asked.

comment Using Akka Framework in game development with Unity3D
dont know why this was closed presumably because the closers dont ahve a clue about what you were talking about ... in answer to your questions 1) yes you can, but akka.net doesn't support the 'v odd' version of mono unity uses ... you could use a service boundary with something like protobuff / grpc and do what you like beyond that though 2) no akka.net and java version do not talk nice.
