Hello!

This is merely impossible to bear. I do not know Java Threads at all. What is that?

Here is my primitive Thread:

As you see it is simple. Here is my code that starts thread :

This method creates SplashTooltipThread and executes run method once, then run sets isRunning to false(line 13) to stop executing run method.

However when I again call this method(sleepAndShowTooltip) I do not create SplashTooltipThread but instead I only set its variable isRunning to true. I expect that my SplashTooltipThread will again execute method run once. But it never happens. I print that splashTooltipThread.isRunning is true but splashTooltipThread does not execute its run method again.

What happened to while loop inside run method and why it does not see that I set back isRuning to true.

Thank you!

Now I am super curious what sports would be like if we allowed drugs and tiny ads.
