Learning how to write multithreaded applications is the key to taking full advantage of the Java platform. In Taming Java Threads, well-known columnist and Java expert Allen Holub provides Java programmers with the information they need to write real multithreaded programsprograms with real code. Holub provides an in-depth explanation of how threads work along with information about how to solve common problems such as deadlocks and race conditions. He not only explains common problems, but also provides the uncommon solutions that mark the difference between production-level code and toy demos. While it is essential to build support for threading into a Java program from the very beginning, most books on the subjects of Java user interface construction and Java networking barely touch on threading topics. Along with being a basic Java reference, this book is a must-read for any Java developer.

“Oh what a tangled web we weave. When first we practice to deceive.” --Sir Walter Scott It is San Francisco in the summer 1882, and Annie and Nate Dawson have finally found a good balance between the demands of family and work. Nate has an interesting legal case defending a young woman who has been left out of her mother’s will. Annie is looking into whether the financial difficulties facing the Potrero Woolen Mills are caused by bad management or bad luck. For her own reasons, Biddy O’Malley is eager to help Annie with her investigation. What none of the three of them could anticipate was how secrets and unexpected entanglements would complicate their search for the truth. Entangled Threads is the eighth full-length novel in the USA Today best-selling author’s Victorian San Francisco Mystery series. However, it can be read as a stand-alone by anyone who enjoys cozy historical mysteries with an amateur female sleuth.

Drawn thread embroidery has been practiced and esteemed for centuries, producing the kind of elaborate linen tablecloths, veils, and shawls passed down through generations. You might think it's too complicated, expensive, and time-consuming to do today. But, in fact, it can be done by anyone who is simply handy with a needle; instead of linen you can use many inexpensive modern fabrics; and while there are many meticulous, intricate designs and patterns, this unique book has lots of ideas for quick and easy projects that will lend beauty and drama to your home and wardrobe. There are separate chapters on all of the well-known drawn thread varieties--needleweaving, reticella, Russian drawn ground, Hedebo, and Hardanger--and even an explanation of how drawn thread techniques can be adapted to the sewing machine. With over 140 photographs and 97 line drawings, this comprehensive book brings a timeless art into the '90s with as much style as precision.
