I'm currently using threading in a Java project to do asynchronous 
message handling. It's lovely, even if I'm remembering how 
painfully verbose Java is, even with the help of an IDE.

I have no real point except that, I'm enjoying being able to use threads 
without feeling that I'm losing portability.
