[ENet-discuss] Multiple enet_host_service instances?

   From what i know, Enet_host_service will "empty" the list of  
events, so if the connect thread gets the receive packet and just  
ignores it, it'll lose the packet, so you wont receive it on the other  

   Remember, even if threads appear to run all at the same time, they  
need to "pause" the program to sync, using mutexes or semaphores or  
stuff like that, so a thread being "run" will pause all other threads.

   (note to self: next time, use "reply to list" instead of reply so  
the msg will be sent to the list and not to the poster)
