Mainly (but not exclusively) for the virus lab.
Also, the layout will change soon.


Enjoy!

I like the concept.

Are there any plans or way clicking on the image expands it like in the forums, rather than it opening in the same tab or having to open it in a new tab as this breaks the flow of the blog ?

Haha, most of the pics from Caro in Budapest are from same locations as when i was there with Philips (we visited their Székesfehérvár assembly plant).
I remember those gypsy shows with horses, that huge cathedral (they were renewing it back then already). And we were even in the same restaurant. "palinka" is the word that i remembered the best from there ;D

evangelists: just my curiosity - what type of content would be interesting for you? formal, non-formal or even funny? detailed or something for the average Joe? i'm not saying we'll absolutely follow your responses, but i think i can inspire a bit with them ;)

Well, the article for Allaple is totally out of my league but would be nice if you guys would write a bit about AV technologies in general (even competitors stuff) and explain new features that are in avast! and the ones that will follow in a near future.
For example right now some hints about avast! 5 and what new it'll end up in it and why that particular tech is good. This kind of stuff is always interested to read and may attract new users after reading the blog. Funny things here and there also don't hurt. Blog is not an official thing like official webpage so it's usually nice to see the fun side of the staff behind the "serious" mask. Makes it closer to the users.
