Ding Dong! The VIVA is Dead!

I'm now sitting at the lab PC in such a high state that I would probably fail a tox screening. The presentation went on without a hitch, and the supervisors did not feel the need to bombard me with any difficult questions.

I had rehearsed my speech for about 5 times prior to this. I was afraid I would forget some lines but the words just popped out from my mouth naturally. There was a part near the middle where my voice suddenly cracked as if I had just reached puberty, but I quickly regained control and went on as usual.

So I guess that's it - 7 months of hard work encapsulated within 25 minutes. It was one hell of a ride, and I'm particularly happy because this was a project I had wanted to do since Semester 1, and I did it!

Now it's time to move on to better things in life... like sleep.

P.S. If possible, I will upload the complete system up at my project website.

Congrats! The viva is over, but don't you have a thesis to write?

Ugh, I have to use UML for my current project.

Yes, my viva comes after I submitted the thesis, so it's a complete package!

If you still haven't decided on which UML software to use, go for StarUML (http://staruml.tigris.org). Based on my research it's one of the most usable ones out there.

Besides my own of course, but mine is not really meant to work in an industry setting.
