Congratulations, Alan!!! You still passed!!!

This has happened to quite a few people. Cindy Rogers has already contacted Sun. The 3rd digit on each of your scores was truncated. See her post at

Hi Alan.

Just a question about the images you used as icons for your JButtons.
I have similiar gifs in my GUI. Was wondering if it was ok after all to leave them in?

You passed with a v good score with them in right?
And you seem to have got 30 out of 40 for your GUI.

Congrats.

Hey there,

Yup I passed fine with them in. 30/40 it seems, yeah im kind of disapointed in that. I invested as much time on the GUI as I did on the rest of the project. I even had the GUI designer in work look at it, and he gave me lots of tips, and I re-designed it to what he advised.

Oh well.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
