Hi everyone,

I want to ask you all for some input on a idea I have had.

I was wondering what benefits would I have if I moved the following functions to a background thread
> Serial barcode scanner
> Database Updates (syncing data from the Main database server to a local copy in case the server goes offline)

Would this make the application more stable or would it have no effect? as I can leave the app sometime running for hours before it crashes and
other times it will crash at start up.

I've been working on a GUI Version in Gambas for a few months but I do not really want to give up the FreeBASIC version unless i can not get the few issues sorted.
