Hi all,

Just an observation: I am actually Rafael Prado, but I lost access to that account, and it seems that no e-mail address that I currently use is the one I used here. Hence, I had to create this new account.
I didn't intend of breaking any rules, but since I was extremely busy, I didn't have time to sort this out (don't know if I can).

Enough of that, onto results!

I really thought I wouldn't be able to control my anxiety in the "waiting for results" period, but the real life job really managed to keep me busy on that!
I only lost 5 cryptic points in O-O design, labeling a 395 in my history. I am too happy to worry about what went wrong.

I'd like to thank everyone in this forum, specially Ken (comments), Eugene (heavy MVC topics) and Andrew (wonderful book).
This is a very nice forum, and I plan to be of assistance whenever possible.

Even though I don't drink, the beer is on me!

@All:
Thanks guys, I appreciate that!

@Roberto:
Yep, I am a brazilian as well. More precisely, a capixaba.
How long are you in the "waiting period"? Mine took about 7 business days, not counting the day I took the test.

@Ulises:
I cannot tell precisely how long it took, since I had to do it in my usually scarce free time. But I can say that an year has passed since I started.

@Soroj:
Looking back at implementation, I think that I really did more than I should do. I just wanted to be on the safe side, and documenting well my choices. That did pay off in both Locking and GUI sections. While it did lower the OO score... I really want to know what I overlooked.
Regarding UI, I had changed the design many times until I was satisfied with.
I had adaptors for the service implementations, used by the controller, which is mainly a collection of actions. Nothing fancy about that.
The topic "Textbox vc combobox" has bugged me for a while, and decided for editable combobox, combining both worlds.
Other than that, I paid attention to tooltips, mnemonics, and everything else needed to make the application user-friendly (including manual)
I did not, however, have any checkbox for case sensitiveness, 48h rule (I implemented that), etc. Those were all documented in the choices. I believe the main thing is to document well that choices document, no matter what design you have (with certain restrictions, I suppose).
I was really satisfied to ace the GUI section.

@Jose
What's next? Some time to relax! I am afraid that won't last long, though...
So I am already making up my mind to SCBCD. That should be useful in my current situation.

Congrats again!!!
