A term thread means some kind of minimal process in computer science. Processes and threads are used to simulate parallel execution of programcode. But there is a difference between both: a process describes the execution of a whole program. It contains an image of the programs binary executeable code in memory just as it is used for handling memory allocation by the operating system. However a thread is nothing in this way. It does just describe a parallel execution of code inside a process, so one process can hold multiple threads.

The description above is just one very simple definition of a thread. GTA simplifies multithreading alot so everything the script needs to do is to start a thread and perhaps end it somehow. It does not need to handle variable synchronisation or communication between two threads. This is what the game does through internal routines.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Thread is used along with a needle to make armour out of leather, dragon leather, and cured yak-hide. It can be bought Thessalia's Fine Clothes in Varrock or in crafting stores, such as the one in Al Kharid. For yak-hide users in Neitiznot, thread can be bought from Jofridr Mordstatter in the bank on the island. Each thread spool has 4-5 uses before its supply of thread runs out and it is consumed. Getting five uses out of one spool is rarer than getting four uses. They are stackable, so many may be carried at once for larger-scale crafting.

A spool of thread is also a loot from baby impling.

There is a spawn point in the Jolly Boar Inn, located north-east of Varrock proper.

Trivia

  • Though 4 uses per spool thread is VERY common, some players have indeed received 5 uses per spool, which is uncommon, but not unheard of.
  • Depending on your level, it is possible to consistently get 5 uses. A level 28 Craftsman has gotten 100 uses out of 20 spools (5 each) making Leather Hardbodies.
