That was the point , you probably don't need them, and if so avoid
If you want to learn how to use them , go for it!
That is an excellent reason to mess with them, it was just a warning
because you WILL be bitten by them, just a matter of time ;)

I should have mentioned this was an attempt to show you how to make a
thread 'exit' after it reached 10. You are having problems with the
controller class, please look again at what I gave you this as an
example. Did you run it?
It was specific to your question. You were having problems making the
controller exit.
It should explain where you are lost, notice I inherit from Thread and
not object, notice a much simpler way to write the thread ....
You also mention the MVC pattern. If you are trying to implement MVC
with threads you are going about it the wrong way ;)
