El Reg seeks top net neologism

AVG 8.0

8.0 fatter, slower and less user friendly than 7.5. And it has a nasty habit of interfering with applications using MS SQL Server. I had too remove AVG from my office workstation when that happened.

Oh, and Paris and her boys finally look like themselves again. Good on you.
