They've finally posted my thread lab handouts and code up on www.edccontent.com. So if you went to DevCon and need that material, you can get it now. The handout contains everything I talked about in my hands-off lab, but also has some details I didn't, mostly samples of other threads (explorer.exe, cmd.exe) interfering with program behavior. Also check out the explanation of how to recognize data loss in section 5.
If you didn't attend EDC and don't have access to the materials, I don't think I am supposed to give them out. But I will be working to make them generally available one way or another -- hopefully to integrate them into Platform Builder help.
