Assunto:  Present Perfect (continuous)
 
Mensagem:  As I'm almost sure that the answer to the question in the previous message is "NO", then I come to the conclusion that it's not possible to use the present perfect followed by a since clause if the action refers to one single event in the past. Therefore, I use the present perfect continuous because I have to emphasize either the continuity or the repetition of an event. Is it right? This subject is rather confusing to master...
