Thanks! It all makes sense now!!
Consider taking a new look at your CV. I find the key is that it must stand out from other CVs otherwise you'll get lost in the massive pile of applications that they receive. You've got to appear different as there are plenty of people out there with your same qualifications/background and you've got to stand out. How to do this though is tricky, but if you give me your email I'll send you mine - I dont appear to have a problem getting interest for jobs. Also sign up for as many agencies as you can, they'll help you with your cv and usually find plenty of opportunties! try jobserve.co.uk, reed.co.uk, cwjobs.co.uk etc. Good luck!!

Thanks. So it there an implicit thread group always in existance while the program is running i.e does my new thread belong to the main thread group?
Is it possible to access this threadgroup at runtime, I assume it would be. H

Thanks for your help
Hi,
Can some one tell me if a Thread reference goes out of scope or I null it in the code does the thread die? or will it run until completetion?
i.e if there are no valid references to a thread how does the garbage collection routine free the memory used by the thread that is running? I've tried a few examples myself and it appears the thread continues until it completes, but with out knowing for sure that the GC has run (which I cant know!) then I cant prove it one way or another!

Thanks
