So, the above portion of this page is all that I felt was necessary.  It was simple & sweet.  Yet, I now have reasons to make it longer.  You see, this project has been useful to enough people that my site traffic has notably increased; and while I really only wish to offer such a simple project for free, I thought that I might as well justify such work through any meager profits which might be earned through an advertisement on the page. Accordingly, I signed-up for Google AdSense.

Yet, things were not to be so simple.  While the page's traffic was certainly enough to justify an ad, Google AdSense has some policies concerning which pages will be allowed to host ads.  Specific to my page, here was the problem: it was actually too simple.  "What?!", I thought, "I have everything necessary, and I don't really want to add any fluff."  Yet, I did want the ad... and so, here is all that fluff. Lol.  Are you enjoying it? ;)

Oh! I know how to add more fluff!
I can share the email I got from them.
Here is the email which I recieved from Google:



Your AdSense application status



Thank you for your interest in Google AdSense. Unfortunately, after reviewing your application, we're unable to accept you into AdSense at this time.


We did not approve your application for the reasons listed below.


Insufficient content: To be approved for AdSense and show relevant ads on your site, your pages need to have enough text on them for our specialists to review and for our crawler to be able to determine what your pages are about.

To resolve this issue, please work through the following suggestions:

  • Make sure that your pages have sufficient text - websites that contain mostly images, videos or Flash animations will not be approved.
  • Your content should contain complete sentences and paragraphs, not only headlines.
  • Ensure that your website is fully built and launched before you apply for AdSense - do not apply while your site’s still in a beta or “under construction” phase or only consists of a website template.
  • Place the ad code on a live page of your website. It does not have to be the main page, but test pages that are empty except for the AdSense ad code will not be approved.
  • Provide a clear navigation system for your visitors so that they can easily find all of the sections and pages of your website.
  • If you’d like to monetize YouTube videos, please apply for the YouTube monetization program. Note that blogs and websites that contain only videos will not be approved.



You can find more details and application tips in this help article.

So, is there anything else which I might add to this page?  Well, I suppose that I might ramble-on about origins of the project itself.  I had installed Windows 10; and to be honest, I was not then nor am I now really a fan.  I know that the initial "Home" release was being offered for free for a long time, and I think that Microsoft felt that this entitled them to provide an incomplete & frankly broken product.  Yet as per my employer's instructions, I was using it in a work environment, and we had actually paid for the "Professional" version.  Certainly, I was not a beta tester, but I was being treated as though I was.  I have had to tweak to my system so much just to make it what I would call close to decent.

As you may very well understand, my complaints are not unique either to me or to my computer system, and many (or most) users have had a variety of issues.  In the end, one must either simply accept such issues or quest with others to find & share solutions.  I choose the latter option.  In many cases, I found viable solutions or at least work-arounds; and while the steps to tweaking my system were tedious, I have long since grown accustomed to such nonsense.  Yet, there was one issue which took me a bit longer to solve.  While others claimed to have solutions, the solutions seemed rather more tedious than usual & required users to have a higher level of understanding of some computer routines than they might typically, actually have.  Worse yet, user reports complained how these "solutions" often simply did not work.  Yes, I am talking about the apparent brokenness of Java's integration with the OS, and I am talking specifically about the subsequent failure of JAR files to execute (or run) as expected.

In any event, I was able to figure-out how to fix this issue; and having done so, I thought that I would share my solution with others.  Yet, I did not want it to have to be a step-by-step tutorial, and I preferred that it be something that most users would have no problem implimenting.  So, I wrote & compiled some simple code to do just this, and I wrapped it with an easy installation package.  Voila! Thus, JAR_Runner came into being.

So, that pretty much sums it up, and I hope this is enough fluff for Google AdSense.
Thanks, and God bless! ^_^
