Adrotator

Found a use for the Adrotator control in .NET. I haven't had to sort out ads on a site before (other than the Google AdWords), so I've never paid any attention to the control.

I was getting a little bored of the peacock picture, which was on the right of the main page, and I wanted to put some more pictures that Julia and I have taken on the site. I was going to write some sort of image rotator, but fortunately the word "rotator" grabbed me enough to realise that I should at least see if the Adrotator would do it.

It did. Just put the control on the page, upload the images, and create an XML file to hold the image location details, and that's enough. No coding at all. That's the best sort of coding.
