Someone creditable told me yesterday

You do need to know the signatures of the Thread constructors. You
also need to know which methods can take a timeout.
The only thread methods you really need are:

if u use t.join() in a main method then before executing the rest of the code it will wait for the thread t's run method to terminate...
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
