My sites: http://LastMinuteIslandVacation.com, http://themepark.com, among others

Things I'm good at: organizing and executing big web projects, PHP, HTML, CSS

Things I'm okay at: MySQL db admin, basic server setup to get a site launched (cron, permissions, ftp, svn, etc.)

Things I usually need help with: nitty-gritty server-level sysadmin stuff (linux, X11, compiling things)

Favorite StackExchange sites: stackoverflow.com, superuser.com, english.stackexchange.com, serverfault.com

I started doing online work in the mid-'80s (do you remember CompuServe, GEnie or AppleLink?) and then graduated to the Internet when it was invented. :-) Veteran of several Internet startups, including a couple of my own. I went to the launch parties for both Adobe Flash and WIRED magazine. I've also been on six game shows.

comment How do I set up DFP to show one set of ads for US/UK and AdSense for everywhere else?
Ah, your experience is better than mine. I agree that the terminology (and interface) is clunky, but now that I have it set up properly, I still have ads that are not showing for reasons that are unclear, and the ad unit shows as "Unmatched targeting or unknown" in the delivery diagnostics. Totally useless. :-\

comment How do I set up DFP to show one set of ads for US/UK and AdSense for everywhere else?
Thanks for your tips. I've found DFP to be a buggy mess (at one point I had to completely archive my order and start a fresh one to get DFP to serve properly) but I finally have it working. The delay between making changes in DFP and seeing those changes on the site (and then the complete uselessness of the debugging panel "delivery diagnostics" report) is maddening! I guess you get what you pay for with this thing.
