Did everybody get their 1.4 BETA done?

Just wanted to see if there was anybody else out there who, like me, is still a few days from completing it despite the extension. C'mon guys, 'fess up. I know our fearless moderator Mark isn't done either.
It's been good though since this experience will probably jumpstart me on my stalled official 1.2 assignment. I'm still going to go on and finish this as fast as I can just in case the turn-in rate is lower than expected and Sun decides to give yet another chance to us slackers.

I haven't finished yet. Don't know what to do? Do I need to upload in an 80% done state or simply forget about uploading? Or upload incomplete so that i can see how it looks to appear an essay exam?

I don't think 80% done will cut it. The application needs to run and all (100%) of the MUST requirements implemented. Anything less will probably result in an automatic failure.

I just couldn't spoil that chance of having a free shot at the Developer Certification even though I was under lots of pressure The one-month requirement was a very good thing, otherwise I would have ended up delaying things and you know how it is: you never get things done.
I have uploaded the assignment three days ago and scheduled the essay exam for next Wednesday.
I actually spent plenty of time during the first two weeks in September to get the most done. On September 16, I was over with the design, implementation and documentation, and still had 2 weeks for tuning things and writing some more docs.
I hope everything will go well. Good luck to the other beta testers
