quit stealing minacross's karma >:(
The wind in the wires made a tattletale sound
And a wave broke over the railing
And every man knew, as the Captain did, too,
T'was the witch of November come stealing.

Boys,

STOP THAT NOW!

This is an antivirus support forum. All of you are clearly off-topic and that will be not tolerated anymore. Say something about karma again and I will delete your posts.  >:(  >:(

To me it seems you're annoying other users with your karma begging.

Resource drain - One example
« Reply #34 on: October 17, 2003, 03:24:28 AM »
Hardware:
CPU Celeron 600 MHz
RAM 64 MB
VGA 8 shared

OS:
Windows Me

Software:
Memory Mechanic from System Mechanic 4.0 b

NOTE:
Swap file size (fixed) 128 MB

How did I test?

McAfee was loaded with default set of options. Avast! 4 home was loaded with 4 out of 5 providers (all but Outlook/Exchange provider). Since hardware resources were so scarce and Windows Me was so notorious of its poor memory management, I did 2 passes of memory recovery and one pass of memory defragging. After that, I waited for blue line (Free RAM) to become perfectly flat and that was considered as "stationary" state. CPU usage fluctuated even in "stationary" state, so as "stationary" state for CPU usage I took position of horizontal yellow line.

Sorry doggeral. I think we do not agree with you. NAV is quite a non wellcome antivirus. I wont post here all my past comments about it (if anybody want to read something, try a search in these foruns: http://www.avast.com/forum/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=1335;start=msg7498#msg7498)

Minacross, try a look at http://www.avast.com/forum/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=1436;start=msg8505#msg8505 and http://www.avast.com/forum/index.php?board=1;action=post;threadid=777

You do not regret posting anything here. We always learn and sometimes teach  



Sigh ..... Sarcasm is lost all too often in this world....

Can we post about our karma on the "General Topics" forum?

kubecj,

I do not beg for Karmas    >:(
I started this thread to discuss some problem I am facing, and not to beg for karmas :(

Mina, don't take the things like this. You and your posts are wellcome. I'm just thinking that Vlk and Kubecj are right to stop annoying messages of 'karma'. Folks, use the IM messages for this.
About your RAM, I cannot conect avast! directly with this trouble. What I know I have already posted in foruns (http://www.avast.com/forum/index.php?board=1;action=display;threadid=777;start=msg4686#msg4686): Tests on new Beta version of Norton and McAfee Antivirus in a Pentium 4, 1,4GHz e HDD at 5.400 RPM give this:
Norton eats 46Mb RAM  
McAfee eats 29,1 Mb RAM  
avast 4.0 just 11,1 Mb RAM
The best things in life are free.

I started this thread to discuss some problem I am facing, and not to beg for k@rmas :(

It's ok, don't worry. What kubecj tried to say is that let's take karmas less seriously than in the last week :). Currently I placed that word among the censored words (replacing the a with @ :) :) ).

I do not like the who took my karma away and similar stuff. Next time I will be forced to ban the word karma totally or to disable karmas at all  ;) (but I hope it will not be necessary - it's quite fun - nothing more or less).

Hope this helps to clear the things up a little bit
