Definitions for "Thread"
A sequence of messages posted to an on-line newsgroup or discussion group, dealing with the same topic; -- messages in such a thread typically refer to a previous posting, thus allowing their identification as part of the thread. Some news-reading programs allow a user to follow a single such thread independent of the other postings to that newsgroup.
A group of related messages on a BBS, within the same message base.
Within the broader scope of subjects discussed by a list are more specific, ongoing dialogues --or threads. There are generally multiple threads being discussed at any one time in any given list.
Something continued in a long course or tenor; a recurrent theme or related sequence of events in a larger story; as the thread of a story, or of life, or of a discourse.
A related sequence of instructions or actions within a program that runs at least in part independent of other actions within the program; -- such threads are capable of being executed only in oprating systems permittnig multitasking.
A fundamental unit of execution on certain computers. In a UNIX context, threads are associated with a process and share the process's environment. This makes the threads lightweight (i.e., a context switch between threads is cheap). A more high-level view is that a thread is a "lightweight" unit of execution that shares an address space with other threads. See unit of execution, process.
a mindless organism dropped from the Red Star which devours all organic material. It can only be killed by starvation, water, extreme cold and fire.
Thread is the menace of Pern, it is a substance that rains down from the red star and eats everything that is not Rock, or Metal. Fire and Water are the only thing that destroys it.
A spore that falls on Pern, which consumes anything organic that it comes into contact with, destroying plants animals, and people. It can be 'drowned' in water or burned by fire. Stone, ceramics, and metal are impervious to it.
A very small twist of flax, wool, cotton, silk, or other fibrous substance, drawn out to considerable length; a compound cord consisting of two or more single yarns doubled, or joined together, and twisted; also, one fiber of a cord composed of multiple fibers.
Fig.: Composition; quality; fineness.
Typically a fine-gauge synthetic-but also of natural materials, for certain applications-cord used for embroidery stitching; made of two or more filaments twisted together for strength and other characteristics; available in a wide array of colors and performance attributes, as well as various specialty threads (such as metallic).
Keywords:  screw, spiral, nut, rib, helical
The prominent part of the spiral of a screw or nut; the rib. See Screw, n., 1.
To form a thread, or spiral rib, on or in; as, to thread a screw or nut.
A thread is a portion of a screw thread encompassed by on pitch. On a single-start thread it is equal to one turn. (See also Threads per Inch and Turns per Inch.)
Keywords:  chockstone, sling, hil, mcmillan, rock
A hole in the rock which can be used to create runner by threading a sling or nut through. Could also be created by a chockstone.
Any naturally occurring tunnel in the rock that a sling may be passed through and used as an anchor (if strong enough)
A hole in the rock, or behind a chockstone, which can be used for protection by threading a sling through it. Also: the sling threaded through the hole. [Hil McMillan
A complementary or like thread is chosen for garment or project construction on a machine. The bobbin should be wound of the same type of thread or the exact same thread whenever possible, to prevent knotting, bunching, etc. The first step for most sewing machine trouble shooting is to change the thread and needle. When hand sewing with one thread, cut the end of the thread that is nearest to the spool before tying a knot in the same end. This will prevent ravelling and knotting.
1. A slender, strong strand, or cord, especially one designed for sewing, or other needlework. 2. A general term for yarns used in weaving and knitting i.e. Thread Count and Warp Count.
The Superstition: When finding a thread on another actor, one should wind it around a finger without breaking. This, it is said, will bring a contract from the management bearing the initial suggested by the number of times the thread goes around the finger. The Origin: Again, I have no idea. Though, there are many superstitions involving tying thread around a finger.
The profile of a container finish that will accommodate specific closures.
Complimentary, helical protrusions on the closure and the container.
A raised helical pattern going around the shank of a bolt. The thread is measured by pitch, which is the distance from one peak of the thread to the next, expressed in mm or threads per inch.
Keywords:  mvs, userid, cics, subsystem, oracle

Keywords:  redo, rac, belong, log, instance
Each Oracle instance has its own set of online redo log groups. These groups are called a thread of online redo. In non-Real Application Clusters environments, each database has only one thread that belongs to the instance accessing it. In Real Application Clusters environments, each instance has a separate thread, that is, each instance has its own online redo log. Each thread has its own current log member.
A set of redo log files is called a thread. Each instance mounts one thread of redo logs when it starts up. When using RAC, each instance must have its own thread of redo logs. Query v$instance or v$thread to see the thread currently in use. V$log lists the redo log files with the threads they belong to.
