I was contacted by avast! staff member about it, but they haven't gone past "surprise" word so it's a surprise for real. And i have absolutely no clue what they are cooking. Tomorrow it is then :)

Well that is three of us on this topic with a little advance notice of the 'surprise' but no detail of what it might be, pleasant I'm sure. Patience is a virtue.

It's already "tomorrow" here. So where's the surprise?  ;D

Tech,
How many days is a few?  I checked the website on the 15th (today), and there isn't any surprise that I can see. ???
Maybe if I go to the site in England?
I went to the site in Europe and saw a free year with a subscription.  Since I use Avast Free that isn't a surprise for me.  Is there another surprise?
