Using a thread

I am about to use a thread for the first time in a web app. I have looked at the examples and docs and think I understand it but is it possible to fire a thread off and then forget it so in effect when it is finished it kills itself off?

Having looked at this again I see the Kill method which I will use.

when a thread finishes, it ends automatically. No need to kill.

Kill anyway raises an ThreadEndException on the thread to end code there.
