BEST, BEST, BEST !!!
« on: November 29, 2003, 03:18:02 PM »
Hello to everyone in this forum !

I'll be quick, very quick...
I used to use AVG - Antivirus, but I recently switched to Avast! Home Edition. What a pleasant surprise ! I just can't believe that program is so good and so effective. Best Antivirus EVER, and what's the best thing of all, this version, Home Edition that I use is FREEE of charge...  ;D
I mean, we all are lucky when we can use something for free, but I want to give my respect to complete Alwil Software crew for their hard and very successful work. My financial situation doesn't allow me to spend so much money on PC software (I have paid for all mayor programs like OS WinXP, Office, Corel, etc.), so I try to use free versions (ZoneAlarm, Avast! Home Edition, Ad-aware 6) as much as it's possible. I hope I'll make enough money one day to pay for Avast! Professional Edition, 'cause it is worth of that money... oh, it is !!!

Just two questions:

1.) Where can I download some more skins ? I found some on this site, but, is there anything else out there ?

2.) Am I allowed to put your Avast! logo on my WEB site as a link for your software ?

Thanks in advance for your answers !

Regards !

sasha,

You said it all!!  Avast is the best.

You can download new skins from http://www.avast.com/i_kat_71.html
There is much good freeware out there if you wish to keep things on a tight budget.

Make a visit to
www.wantedbest.com
www.webattack.com
www.nonags.com
for some good stuff.  There are many more sites available.

One of the guys here did a fantastic job of compiling a list of software you can download:
Technical is also here often on the forum as I am to help users with problems if we can.
Look at his list:
http://www.avast.com/forum/index.php?board=1;action=display;threadid=1509

If you need a particular program, or have a special need, then you can ask him.
He will be able to direct you to the section in his list where you can find what you need, OR you can come back to the forum (General Topics) and post your request.
Believe me, you will get more help than you can handle!  hahaha

Good luck
techie   :D

Ok, thanks Techie !

...only one thing... you didn't get me well. I found those skins on this WEB site, but I asked is there maybe some more skins somewhere else that I can download.

sasha,

As far as I know, those are the only skins available right now for Avast.

Also, I normally do not make it a habit of posting my last name on any open forum.

Sasha, techie is right, the skins on that page are probably the only ones that exist at the moment... the reason is that we haven't yet properly documented how to make custom skins, i.e. all of the skins are made by our "graphics guy".

Well given the info on your website (BTW very nice design) you're someone who would be able to author awesome skins - some people just have the talent and some don't (like me, hehe).

Enjoy your copy of avast,

Thanks guys, I really appreciate your opinion related to my Online Resume. That is actually one of my very first Web sites done in Macromedia's Flash MX. I came to live in Canada one and a half year ago from Croatia, Europe. I used to be a GFX (graphic) guy in POLARIS, a small group of programmers. We used to make some very good intros and demos for some competitions all around Europe. Latter, we joined to Banana Design, group from Norway. Today, we all have our lifes, and we are all around the world, hehe. Those guys from my ex.group Polaris, today are very well known programmers. They made a game for PC "SERIOUS SAM"... you probably heard already about them...

Ok, thanks again guys ! I really like your program and I think I'll stick around... see ya !!!

P.S. Here is link for my very old web site, but you can see some of my artworks there...

Sasha, do stick around, they are a nice bunch... one or two certain individuals  ::) ;) keep enticeing me to come back and it is nice when it all comes together  :)

Great graphics on that site, as Vlk say's some people 'have it', unfortunately I'm in the same camp as Vlk... I don't  :-\  Although Vlk is probably telling fibs and actually has the talents  :) ... he knows most things, except how to answer e-mails  :P

Are those graphics copyright?... should be I guess.

Thanks again Walker !

...maybe you're right, although I think that talent doesn't exist. That's a myth to scare some people away. I think that everybody has a talent for something in itself, but 4 most important things are: work, work, work and 4th one: you have to be willing to try and always believe in yourself.

Fuel for my ideas and artworks comes every time when I read some good words from you guys who judge my work... I also appreciate when someone has to say something that is not so nice about my design... it can be very productive for me, 'cause 10 people can see better than only one, and that's for sure... That way they can make me notice some errors and correct them...

Yeah, pretty all of my artwork is copyrighted, that's the only way you can keep it as the author of the pieces...

Greetz !

That myth must have certainly scared the eebie geebies outta me Sasha  :) :) I can see talent and art, but to reproduce it my-self... no way.

Yeah, pretty all of my artwork is copyrighted..

Blast, there goes my next tattoo ... the 'red-skull' :) :) :)

I know it's getting off topic and the mods are gonna get annoyed soon !! but are there any other links to your web design work. I'm genuinely interested.

Good luck, W.

No way man... why do you thing you can't have it ? I didn't say no one can use it, I just said that pretty all of my artwork is copyrighted. Rebel Skull is my artwork, but it's not originaly my idea... I've seen thousands of different versions of that skull (as stickers), and I've decided to draw my version...

You are free to use it as your very next tattoo. I'll be glad to see that. I'm not some kind of copyright freak... if someone ask me nicely, I will give him (or her) my permission to use it... no problem... I just like to know where my artwork ends up.

Here is a better version of that picture:

Sorry Walker, some of my own links you can find at my Online Resume Web site, under RELATED WEB SITES menu. I work now on two new WEB sites for my clients, but I'm not allowed to give links untill I completely finish the project... sorry.  :-\

Question for Vlk :
Is there any way I can use your Avast! Home Edition LOGO to direct visitors of my WEB site to your site... Damn, I want all people to use this wonderful product... so simple, so efficient... WONDERFUL !

And one more issue: Don't get me wrong, I didn't say that those few additional skins for Avast! are not good... those are wonderfull, but I just wonder if there is something else out there.

Thanks Sasha, I have seen that design in tatts, but not as good as yours. That will become my next tat next time I get into town  :)... I'll post a pic once it has healed  :o

I will ask nicely, but don't mind if you say no... can I also use it as a forum pic?

I'm still amazed at the speed and quality of your site... compdesign seems a bit slower and still under construction... yes!

Thanks again. W

No problem Walker, use it as long as you want, and yes... you can use it as your forum pic.

Yeah, that site for Computer Devices is little bit slower than mine... probably 'cause there are some additional Flash animations... a few more than those at my site...

It's not finishet yet... I'm still waiting for my client from Oakville to send me some data, texts, photos etc...

ONE MORE SECURITY QUESTION for you guys:

I use Zone Alarm Free version, but it looks like it takes much more system resources than Outpost or Sygate Firewall... I have AMD Athlon XP 1700+, 384 Mb DDRAM, 40 Gb HD and I'm connected to Internet by ROGERS HIGH-SPEED CABLE INTERNET (10.0 Mbps)... very, very fast connection... What is your recomendation, which one to use ? I just want to get rid of ZA...

Greets !

Thanks Sasha,

A lot of the guy's on here use and like ZA and I hope they will reply. Personally, I didn't get on with it, prefferring Outpost over anything else (just a personal thing). I did find a problem with Outpost V1 (freeware) on my system (one of the dll would cause a crash every once in a while (ftpfilt.dll if I remember correctly)). I presently trying Outpost Pro which is working fine, but unfortunately is not freeware.

Sorry, this is not a solution, just my witterings, but I'm sure someone will chip in with something more positive.

Thanks again.

Wellcome onboard... Let me answer before Vlk  ;D
Of course you can post the logos... here they are...
One of them is my 'signature'  ;)

And one more issue: Don't get me wrong, I didn't say that those few additional skins for Avast! are not good... those are wonderfull, but I just wonder if there is something else out there.

I think you won´t find any other skin than there.

Again, wellcome on-board.
The best things in life are free.
