A very nice write-up, thanks for posting Vlk.

Edit:

@Tech, it's nice to put a face and a profile, documenting all of your fine work here on the forums. Congrats!

Good interview, which expresses why we as avast users want to help other avast users get the best experience out of avast.

I hope other Evangelists have the mic opened for...
It would be good to listen what other think and feel.
Thanks for the kind words.

I had profiles in mind of both you and Tech. I pictured one of you as "clean cut" and professional, and the other as an aging hippie, with long hair, and Birkenstocks, sitting in a garden with a laptop.

Seeing Tech's picture, I think I have the rest of it figured out.

:)

(You both are highly deserving of any and all accolades and praise that can be given, for your dedication to avast!, and their support forums.)

I was never a hippy, joined the Army at age 15 (they don't do hippy ;D) and did just over 27 years. Even after leaving I didn't grow my hair long, never felt comfortable unless my hair was short ;D

Have grown a beard in the last few years, something else you couldn't do in the Army, the girls seem to like it (Photo curtsey of photofunia.com, thanks Bob from some time ago) ;D

Have a play on photofunia.com upload your image and you can have up on lights, posters, WWII aircraft, etc. etc.
