good multi-threading examples

are there any good (ie "Real Wolrd") multi threading examples?

And i mean more then "Thread 1 being called" "Thread 2 being called" simple stuff.

I want real UI and database threads.

Hi Patrick,

If you want a good introduction to multi-threading in .NET, including an examination of the problems and how to overcome them, you might want to have a look at the free chapter of my recent book.

You'll be glad to hear that it's in VB.NET :)

JustKidding,

The trouble is that too many developers from semi-colonistan know what a thread is, but have no clue about how to do multi-threading correctly.
