i know this isn't exactly what you are looking for, but i am suggesting it in case you didn't know about it... you could use google's "alternate url" to show alternative ads whenever there aren't google ads to display:

No problem. glad to help. I'd actually been wondering about doing something like this myself for other things, although I'd likely do it in PHP or some other language with a DB backend, and weighted rotation. I'm sure you probably could find another implementation that may be more robust that what I whipped up in a few seconds. Try a google search or something to see if you can find more. :)

Ok thanks alot everyone for your input. As far as I know its not in the TOS so it should be ok. Its funny how your not allowed to put a competitors ad in as an alternative ad but nothing about a rotator of some sort.
Anyway I'll give the script a go and I'll post the results. Thanks again diverman.

long time since I had an adsense account but from memory adbutler(do a google search) was able to rotate a wide variety of banner types and I think As was one of them.
