BTW, prior to these methods being deprecated, they were not being used this way. These methods were used by a thread to suspend / resume another thread -- not itself.
Which leads to the next question. Why were they deprecated? The reason it was deprecated is because it was not possible to confirm that the *other* thread was doing anything safe. It could suspend while holding a very important lock, including a system lock.

Hi Henry, Thanks mate. I should have thought more, instead of posting the question on the forum. I need to really improve on threads. Thanks once again.
