ok, so here is our adsense tag info:

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
  google_ad_client = "pub-9825598862931734";
  google_ad_channel ="1040041585";
  google_ad_width = 160;
  google_ad_height = 600;
  google_ad_format = "160x600_as";
<script type="text/javascript"

William, can you update that adsensetest.php with the "google_ad_client"
and "google_ad_channel" numbers from the tag above?

the rest (height, width, color, etc.) should not need to match my
example here, just updated to specify the client and channel values
given and, of course, the removal of that test parameter:

google_ad_test = 'on';

also, i set the example above to use the 160x600 "wide skyscraper"
format instead of the normal one (120x600) just cuz it appears to me
that that's the size of the red "donation header" above it, but feel
free to use whatever sizes, formats and colors look good to you!
