Congratulations david_uk! I'm going to let the rest of our team know about this- truly awesome that you're doing so well with AdSense. I hope you have a blast in Crete, and soon California!
I remember signing up to adsense when it first came out, my site did about 3000 pageviews a day and even though i couldn't add adsense to all pages i was happy at the money i was getting. Now nearly 2 years later i'm getting days were i'm doing 2 million pageviews/day. I quit my day job because of adsense over a year ago and now i'm traveling some place new every few weeks. Adsense rocks!
