Damned background thread


I was screwed by those too. I made an "improvement" to a Twitter user control that would abort a thread if Twitter was taking too long to return a result (as it often does). When Twitter was having issues, a bunch of threads got aborted. By default, IIS restarts when there are too many unhandled exceptions (including thread abort exceptions) in a certain time period. One innocent little Twitter user control on one page of the website kept taking down the entire website (actually, several websites). What a PITA.
