Yes, sure. But even if you are using events to signal your thread that "data is available for processing", you still need a way to tell the thread that it should stop. Otherwise, having a thread that just wait on an event and stops when the event is signaled is a bit pointless.

But as I said in my message, it was a rough advice as everything is clearly explained in the article. My point was that you need a way to tell the thread that it's job is done, and usually you do this using a flag.
