For give me for being uneducated, but is there some sort of online schedule of these presentations, or are you just posting them here as they come about?

If they (avast) don't have a schedule online, wouldn't it be a good idea to put them on a calendar somewhere so people could see the dates that the seminars would be scheduled near them so they could possibly schedule visiting one of them?

Just me thinking out loud...
Just me answering out loud ....
There is no schedule from Avast. I post them as I book them.
I can list the upcoming ones already scheduled if that's of help to anyone.

Right now sitting in the Philadelphia Airport waiting for my final connection to New Haven, Ct.

This will be home for a little more than a week.
The last picture is a view out of the window from my room.
I'll have to explore the vegetable garden a little closer. :)

Then maybe you should get rid of Adblock. :) or, change the rules as to what it blocks.

(Apparently it's blocking content from Evernote.)

Can't you selectively disable the app ???
I don't use it but the pictures in question are from Evernote. Maybe Adblocker needs to become a little smarter;D

The following where of the same pictures in the Evernote App. but in full size and then captured and stored using
Jet Screenshot.







Are they also blocked ???

@ bob3160
Selectively disabling the app as you call it doesn't work as Craig mentioned and as I mentioned there was no blockable entry for the images you had in the post. I even created an exception  and still no difference and even with selecting disable on this page only still no image display and no Red X in my case.

The above images are displayed just fine but the url is completely different hxxp://my.jetscreenshot.com/2701/20110726-8di0-211kb to the other url https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&ik=ad3df3c036&view=att&th=1316794af38a2d00&attid=0.1&disp=thd&realattid=f_gql5yri20&zw, I suspect it is all this redirection that is the cause of the problem and probably with NoScript rather than adblockplus.

The redirect is something that's necessary since the information comes directly from within an email I sent to a friend.
One of the nice features of Evernote. And your probably right about NoScript.
Maybe you could recheck using the Chrome browser (which is what I'm using) and see if it allows you to view the pictures in both posts.

Those pics simply won't display, AdBlock disabled or even trying to view them with IE9, they won't display. So AdBlock has nothing to do with that i suspect.

EDIT: NoScript not installed over here.

I can't either but I'm sure it's not a related item.

Mine probably has to do with the way sharing rights are setup in Evernote and since I'm the owner,
I have no problem seeing the pictures but that's not the case for the rest of you.  :'(
