    Hmmm... Pandora's been available in Australia since July 2012?

    AVG was a 12 Jan offer now expired. Also I note it was from a shareware site that bundles browser toolbars and gosh knows what with their "special" download.

    Get it for free any time (not just Wednesdays and for a limited time) from here:

    The Udemy deals mentioned both link to the same place, the "How to use Chrome Developer Tools" link points to the same page as "How to Paint a 3D Simple Sculptural Rose"

    Edit: is there a link available for the "How to use Chrome Developer Tools" course?
