It appears there is a passing of the old guard at Avast,(retired, etc)

The soon to be passing of Avast 4.8, which has served me so faithfully over the years.

My hat off to the old guard.

The new color, hard on the eyes.

I've changed forum theme for browbotham and fragman to the old one. This makes count of 13 users of the default theme in opposite to 130000 users of the new :)
I changed back to the old default too.  I gave it a try with the new and all the daily tweaks, but my eyes can't handle it even while wearing sunglasses.  Sorry. :P

Test post to get me up to the magic number of 20.

EDIT: Well, whaddaya know?  20 is indeed the magic number of posts needed to be allowed to change the color theme.  The admins may want to rethink that, lest you turn off newbies.

The new orange motif tells you that you are at the Avast! forum even before you read the Avast! Forum banner.

I really like the new theme for the forum. I realise it will have been a modification of a theme (Fussilet?) but which one of his is it as he is a prolific theme creator for SMF.
