  kellmano: Hello there. Many thanks for the offer of help. I just posted the following on the cg page but saw you asked me to post here, so....

< cheers for the offer of help <wannabe>. There was no user tab on the java, but when I clicked the information button it said - Java standard edition version 8 update 25

My computer says it is - Windows 7 home premium.

Does any of that help you diagnose my problem? I've a nagging feeling it's related to AVG >

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <kellmano> I, too, use AVG and have not encountered such problem(s).

Judging from your post, your are running 32-bit system, try go to and click on "Agree and Continue"

And post your result. =)

Nov-20-14  you vs yourself: Hello <WannaBe>! How are you? It's been a while since we caught up. How's life in Cali?
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <you vs yourself> Good, moved to NorCal, we are getting some rain here, how's Chicago? Got your Degree, yet? Or are you in student debt up to your eye balls? =))

  WannaBe: Ohio State University Chancellor makes $800K per year:

University of California system in September gave a 20% raise to their chancellors:

UCSF Chancellor makes the most of the campuses (campi?) at $750K the three lowest makes $383K.

Here is a chart from UC comparing various salaries:


And today, UC system have approved a plan, that <IF NECESSARY> tuition will go up 28% over a period of 5 years.

The cost of tuition (no dorm room, board, books, etc.), could go from current $12.1K to $15.5K in the year 2019.

Currently Janet Napolitano the President of UC system, makes $570K per year, plus UC pays her monthly $9950 housing rent, and $8916 per year for car allowance.

(By my quick math, that is a total amount of just under $700K yearly compensation.)

See anything wrong here, or it's just me?

Nov-20-14  you vs yourself: We should have a get together again some day.
