Good thing you phrased it as a question, otherwise I might have been tempted to subtract a Queue point. Well, ok, I was still tempted.

Why would you think there should be a period there?

B/c it is a full sentence, like the one before it in parentheses.

You wouldn't do the following, would you?

I went to the store and got some grapes (I really like grapes.).

It doesn't matter that it's a full sentence. It matters that it comes at the end of the parenthetical bit.

A quick scan of your recent posts shows that you do it correctly. I'll bet it's just the two-sentence thing in my post that threw you off.
