Which one Bob ? Be more specific...

Btw, Nippon skin is not out yet... Vlk is in USA, so I guess we have to wait till he's back in Czech Republic. Maybe it would be much faster if I take a ride from here to USA and give him CD with my new skin in personal, hehe  ;D

ah, Vlk is in the USA? we "locals" could have given him one helluva a party...and the CD ;D

Message for Bob:

Yeah, and that's because that was just temporary link... on my personal web space. I erased file from there 'cause now you can normaly download that file from avast skins download section... just go there and see...

Thanks but it'd still be quite a journey down to GA... :)
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

Nothing is too difficult when it comes to pleasing our Guru...  ;D

Long Live Vlk ! Long live Alwil ! Looooooooong live avast!

P.S. 4 days ago I asked my good friend in Croatia to install avast! free edition to my parent's PC. Finally they are protected with great antivirus too.

Any advice guys what else should be set in settings to work properly considering they are still on Dial-up connection ?

Thanks !

Not that bad as avast updates are incremental.
You can choose both updates as automatic. You won't break your brandwidth because of that. VPS updates will take 20 seconds  ;)
The best things in life are free.

I already spoked to my father by the phone and I set all those settings for him. I also set both updates to AUTOMATIC. Today, he told me that updates are not so big and don't take too much time to download them... that's good considering they are still on Dial-up connection...

Oh my... Dial-up... when I remember what horror that was... I don't wanna remember... Now I'm so lucky to have Hi-Speed internet connection and I'm so happy. I'm paying little bit more though, but that's the price we have to pay for luxury I guess... Anyway, I need fast connection 'cause sometimes I have to fix some software problems for our customers remotely somewhere far in Canada and that requires fast connection...

Cheers !

Sasha,
I just finished doing an update on my other computer Win98 SE SP 1.5
That computer only has dialup and I thought the update would never finish.
I was originally planning to change this computer back over to dialup to save some money cause cable is fairy expensive.  I think I'll just eat less and keep the highspeed. There's a big differnce between 56K and 3Meg.

Hmmm ... bob, it may be that you are just too spoiled by highspeed!    ;)  

Anyway, I am still on 56k dial-up with a usual 52k connection and my avast updates usually take less than one minute. I'm also using W98SE fully patched & updated ... along with IE6.    :D

CharleyO,
You are right. Spoiled rotten with this cable connection from Comcast.
It's rated at a top speed of 3meg. That's a heck of a lot faster than the 49.3k that I have on the dialup connection.
When we moved out here to Gods country, New Mexico 'The Land of Enchantement' I thought I'd be stuck with dial-up forever.


This was taken this morning at 8:35AM with my Intel webcam right thru the screen window facing due North toward Albuquerque.  Albuquerque is about 35 miles from here.
